Life with Christ - The Best Life

Every morning I read the Bible.  Today I came across the following verses in Psalm 84:

Psalm 84:10-12 (NKJV)
10  For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11  For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.
12  O LORD of hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You!

These words reminded me of some advice I heard from a elder from our church.  She's in her eighties and hasn't always been a Christian. She told me about her life of hardship and struggle before and after coming to faith in Jesus.  She told me that life is hard but life with Christ is the best life.  

Some aspects of my life are a continual struggle but when I look back of the darkness and confusion I used to walk in and consider the continual hope and wonder that I have know since making Jesus my Lord and Savior, I know without a doubt that life with Christ is the best life.
