As 2015 progresses, we’re already halfway through January! Crazy isn’t it? We’re a 24th of the way through the new year.
This new year has started out with blessings and also some happenings that were unexpected. Unexpected doesn’t necessarily mean bad or good, but I’m praying that God will give me wisdom through these situations.
John 16:33 has such a message. God’s word continues to impact me daily as I read it. I reread this verse the other day about a week ago in one of my ‘Bible in One Year’ emails.
Jesus has overcome the world! Why do we even worry? No matter what happens, even if it hurts or doesn’t make sense, God has overcome the world. Our troubles are all temporary. He assures us that we will face trials, butHe is with us, He has power over all the world, and therefore He has power over any trouble within it.
Be strong and persevere, take heart in this knowledge.
On a side note, today is the anniversary of when I created this blog two years ago! Technically, I didn’t post anything on it till the 20th (of January), but still. I am ridiculously thankful that God showed me how to share my not-so-eloquent writing and get my musings out there. There are now over 200 of you!
Thank you so much for all your support and just for listening.
