In this World You Will have Trouble, but Take Heart....


AFTER ALL, I am the Light of the world, and I am both with you and within you.

Every day, you encounter darkness in the world—and in your heart—but remember that I have overcome the world.

You can choose to focus on hurtful, wrong things or to focus on Me—the brilliant Overcomer!

I am calling you to walk with Me along the way of Peace.

I know that many things tug at your consciousness and you have very real responsibilities in your life.

However, I am training you to turn your thoughts to Me more and more—enjoying My Presence in tough times as well as good times.

You will not be able to do this perfectly, but you can make progress bit by bit.

As you direct your attention to Me, I push back the darkness with My invincible Light!

This is how you walk in the way of Peace.

This is how I turn your darkness into Light.

- from " Jesus Today" by Sarah Young

Stay Strong!

"You are my lamp, O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light."
—2 Samuel 22: 29

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."
—John 8: 12 NKJV

"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

"And you, [John the Baptist], will be called the prophet of the Highest; for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways. . . . [in order for Jesus] to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."
—Luke 1: 76, 79 NKJV
