266. In This World You Will Have Trouble

Full Pic“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

These are words of great hope for those who lead an internal life. What happens on the outside – death, disease, and destruction – are outcomes of a fallen world. The good, the bad, and the innocent are all susceptible to these troubles. But Jesus says the things that happen on the outside, terrible as they may be, do not define you if you trust in Him within, for He has overcome the world.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
