In this World

"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

Thank you, Lord, for coming to this world and sacrificing so much for us.  You have already won the battle and we can rest securely knowing that you reign supremely!  I know that when I face trials you are with me giving me the strength and the courage to keep moving forward.  Sometimes I can feel weary of the troubles around me but then I look to you!  You light my way and dispel the darkness.  In you there is hope...hope for a future securely resting in you.  Thank you, Lord!  In Jesus' name, amen.
