“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
But, after learning all this I feel like I was really put to the test this week! I feel like situation after situation has come up and I have let things start to steal my joy. I let myself get down. But, I feel like because of this sermon I handled things better than I would have before! I have reminded myself of Truth and am really feeling joyful despite a really hard week.
I am so thankful that God met me in church last week and made sure that I received the lesson I would need for the coming week.
Speaking of having joy... my joy comes from knowing Jesus Christ as Lord... but, these little people make me feel pretty joyful too, even on hard days!
