COME TO JESUS ~ August 20, 2008

John 16:33
"In this world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD!.

Realism is facing life with eyes wide open-an awareness that I must deal with good and bad situations. I can acknowledge the reality that life is NOT perfect, but I can also believe the truth of God's encouragement. He makes me an overcomer, as well.

These are such amazingly strong words. I have one of those Inspiriational Rounds that you put on your table and this was on todays. I am sharing this because John 16:33 has always been a favorite verse of mine. It just speak straight from Jesus. He tells us that we as believers are not always going to have it easy. We will face many trials, wrongs done to us, loss of jobs, family betrayal, hurts, and yet his strong words that HE is the GREAT overcomer can give us strenth to go on. Our lives should be lived as overcomers knowing the greater goal is our rewards in Heaven.

Please be sure to check out our Hosts Jan of Jan and Tom's Place for others who are participating in todays Come to Jesus.

Blessings today for each of you...Lorena
