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
