John 16:33 NASB "These things I have spoken to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”"I didn't think it would end that way but it did! Sometimes we have this idea in our heads that things will turn out differently, and when it doesn't, we struggle with how it does! I had all the wood cut, and it was time to assemble the project together, but it seemed that with each piece I put together something was off! Today's verse shares about having peace amid the tribulation of life but to take courage because Christ has overcome the world! The more pieces I tried to put together, the worse things got! I went back and remeasured the wood I had cut, and it seemed that somewhere along the way, my measurements were off! Starting over meant measuring twice and cutting once!! In life, we will face those things that can cause us trouble, maybe it's unanswered prayer, or voting for someone who didn't win, or trying to put your life back together but we've missed a few measurements along the way. In either case or all cases, we should turn to the One who has overcome the world and find peace in knowing Him! peace, tom
