Known in Struggle

Joshua Symonette

We all have a human desire to be known. But sharing the not so pleasant aspect of our lives is not what we are inclined to do. We would much rather be known by our successesthan our struggles. We present ourselves more like resumes, showing the best parts of who we are. But being known in our struggle is what actually draws us closer together. And confessing our struggles and carrying each other's burdens is what deepens our connection to God and one another.
