You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

Tribulation


Jesus said. "In this world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)

What a true statement this is. Every day there are things that happen that we say, "That is just not right. That should not happen", but it does. How do people who do not have this hope survive? Our attitude will have a lot to do with how we see adversity. Do we see it as an opportunity to rely more on God than we have been doing? Do we just give up and say the world is just going to hell and I'm not going to think about it? What is the answer? I believe the last part of the scripture answers it. "Be of good cheer. I have overcome the world." Perhaps if we repeat this to ourselves often, it will "sink in" and we will see the light at the end of the tunnel. Remember, Jesus is THE LIGHT.

Time to start linking again. Thank you again all who participate in any way.
