Take Heart.

When you’re going through something or have a question about some topic, who do you go to? Sometimes your parents, someone you respect, or sometimes your friends (though they aren’t always the best people to answer your questions when they’re in the same boat). But my point is that when you have something you’re going through, you go to someone who is in authority on the matter, someone who’s experienced the same thing or something like it.

Well then, what do you make of this?

“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)

God has overcome the world. All the troubles, the heartaches, the drama, and the temptations. He has been there already…and he won. So, when things happen and you don’t know what to do, maybe before you ask your best friend or your mom, try asking God. He knows what to do to get through it because he already has. Isn’t that better than well meant, but sometimes unhelpful, words?

Just a thought for today. Love you all and may you not be content until you are content in Him.
