"Don't Christ-followers enjoy a calendar full of Caribbean cruises? No. This story send the not-so-subtke and not-too-popular reminder: getting on board with Christ can mean getting soaked with Christ. Disciples can expect rough seas and stout winds. "In the world you will have tribulation" (John 16:33)."
Life is not without it's struggle and heartache. Christ knows this better then anybody, if you don't know, pick of the bible and read John, and you'll hear what Jesus went through in His life, went through because He loves you that much.
For today I leave with this reminder; times are tough, and life as a christian was never meant to be easy, Jesus said that plan and simple. He also gave us life after death and hope for the future.
