I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace {Perfect Peace & Confidence}.

In this world you will have trouble {Tribulations, Trials, Distress & Frustration} .

But take heart! {Take Courage, Being Confident, Certain, Undaunted} I have overcome the world.  John 16:33

As I think on this comforting verse I am reminded of A.W. Tozer’s words…“We habitually stand in our Now and look back by faith and see the past filled with God. We look forward and see Him inhabiting our future; but our Now is uninhabited except for ourselves…We talk of Him much and loudly but we secretly think of Him as being absent…”

But God is ever-present, a continuous flow … through our past, flowing in our present, and continuing to flow into our future. (paraphrased from A.W. Tozer’s Fiery Faith)

He was – He is – He Ever shall be…. Take heart – be of confidence and undaunted by the temporary trials that are Sure to come our way.  We can put our trust in Him – the Alpha & Omega – The one who has overcome the world!

May I ever be mindful that he is with me always. He is here during the sunny days and the midst of my storms … he is with me in my Now.

Thanks for stopping in on this blog and allowing me to share my faith journey with you.
