Problems are guaranteed, but there’s hope

In this world we will have trouble.

In this world we will have struggles.

In this world there will be wars and fighting and betrayal and selfishness.

In this world we will see heartache and tragedy and loss that impacts us deeply.

Trouble and struggle and tragedy is almost guaranteed.

But take heart!

“I have overcome the world!” says Jesus.

Jesus died and became alive again to claim victory over death.

And one day, his kids will too. That’s you and me!

We, too, will have victory over death, and triumph over this world once and for all.

That’s what I put my ultimate hope in, and this hope gives me the most amazing peace.

Life is hard, but God is soooo good!!!

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 NIV

  1. Thank you for the nice reminder that Jesus has indeed overcome the world! Your post reminds me of the song I Don’t Want to Get Adjusted as sung by Mitchel Jon and Larnelle Harris with the Gaither Vocal Band.

    Blessings!

      1. The above video is from the Gaither Tent Revival filmed at the Billy Graham Library. It is available on dvd. You should be able to get it from the Gaither web site. Awesome!
