These last 10 days have been a battle - with discouragement, despair and depression. A battle that has left me weak, weary, worn out ... and with a passion to TRUST IN THE LORD with all my heart! Sigh.
Long nights dealing with sleeplessness and pain. Worries that tend to stay off in the shadows during the day and come out with a vengeance in the dark and lonely hours of the night. Talk about monsters in the night!!! OMW!!! Thanking God that HE is greater than anything in this world!!!
Jesus never promised that this life of faith would be "easy" - just possible. He warned us in John 16 that in this world we would have troubles. But He also told us to be of good cheer - because "I HAVE overcome the world".
HAVE = to possess; own; hold for use; contain; to get; receive; take; to experience; undergo; endure; to hold in sight; to be required; compelled; under obligation; to go at vigorously; attack; cease; finish; occupy

Oh, oh, oh!!! I LIKE that!!! Overcome = to render incapable or powerless by laughter!!! Jesus has overcome this world!!! He renders powerless BY LAUGHTER this world!!! ALRIGHT! I CAN DEAL WITH THAT!!!
THANK YOU JESUS! THANK YOU JESUS! THANK YOU JESUS!!!
