“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
As I watched the sun come over the mountain today and as I look at the dusting of snow on the ground, I know the snow doesn’t have a chance today. Even if it doesn’t get too warm today, I know it’s going to be sunny and the power of the sun is going to overcome the snow flurries we got last night. In addition, after today the forecast is for 10 days of temperatures at about 60 or above. Take heart. Be encouraged.
We all have trials and valleys in our lives. Jesus never said we wouldn’t, but in fact said we would. But He said we could have peace in Him knowing that all life’s disappointments and setbacks would not last. Take hold of Jesus and take heart, especially through the difficulties.
I’m not proclaiming that winter will not make a return for a short burst or two. However, I am telling you that no matter what happens in April, we have overcome another winter. Take heart.
