This week has been hard on my dad’s side of the family. Yesterday morning, God chose to take one of my uncles home to glory. This uncle had many health issues so while the family is grieving, we are thankful that he is no longer suffering.
The Bible tells us we will have difficulties in this life. Each of us will suffer in different ways. While I still struggle with the suffering piece of life, I can take comfort in the fact that Jesus has overcome the world. When Jesus came to earth, His whole purpose was to die on a cross for us. He came to pay the penalty for our sins. Jesus overcame death and dying. Those of us who place our trust in Jesus have hope for an eternal future. I know that my uncle is rejoicing and whole.
As you face the tough days in your life, know that you can have hope if you place your trust in Jesus. He has overcome the world.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus’ overcame the world. Please help me to share the hope that only comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
