John 16:33

…In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.

The troubles come in waves – many and varied, demanding of our emotions, our thoughts, our tears.  They invade our prayers, take the joy from time with friends, even tarnishing the simple pleasures of life: a good cup of coffee, now spoiled by tears.  A warming cup of tea left to grow cold by anxious daydreaming.  But…we are commanded: TAKE HEART!  Be of good courage.( AMP)

Yes, you will have trouble.  Yes, you will have tears and trials.  Yes, you will suffer loss, illness, and broken relationships; but look up!  It is I, Jesus, I have overome the world and its struggles.  Take heart, be of good courage, because of ME.
