Take Heart!

Today I am linking up with Cheers Y'all and Wifessionals for their In the Word series. 

 "It's a 21 day study. It's free, completely accessible online, and we begin today! Please join us!
 [Access the study here.]" -Elise from Cheers Y'all

The promise we are reading about today is from John 16:33 

John 16:33 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.

I was laying awake this morning and looked over at the clock and it said, 4:15 a.m. Ugh! Why couldn't I fall back asleep? My mind was so full and wouldn't stop spinning. I couldn't stop thinking about some of the frustrating circumstances we had been having this week and how sometimes life is just HARD. I kept thinking to myself... "I hope God uses this time for good, because right now, it just sucks." 

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

God does not promise that our lives will be perfect or even easy. What He does promise though, is that He is more powerful than any struggle or tribulation that we are dealing with. We will go through seasons of pain and suffering but the truth is we CAN endure because Jesus overcame the world and took our place and our pain by dying on the cross for us! He suffered for us and now we can have peace and rest in HIM. 

This was definitely a reminder I needed this morning! 

Watch these two videos if you need encouragement this morning. Make sure you watch the first one all the way through. It will be worth it I promise! 

Love you all! Praying that you will find PEACE in HIM today!!
