littlethingsaboutgod: “…In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, NIV). We have to remember; the things that happen in this life are temporary. We are in this world but not of it. We need to keep our focus on eternal things, things above. Sure, we will have trouble in this life, but we can stay encouraged because in eternity, we are overcomers through Christ Jesus!
