You Will.....

John 16:33

                     I find comfort in this verse, especially during my days overcome with sickness.  Let's take a moment to break this verse down.....

---In this world...... This is our place to be right now, but it is temporary
---You.... that includes everyone and excludes no one
---Will..... not maybe or might
---Have trouble.... hardship in some shape or form is a burden for us to bear
---But take heart.... there is hope to be found
---I.....God alone is that hope
---Have......its alread been done and our debt paid in full
---Overcome the world...... death has no sting, victory has been won.

                    When I am seriously sick, my thoughts become more focused on my immortality and the next step.  I think about the frailty of this body that's carrying my soul around.  I am blessed to have fight left in me but more than that, a hope that sustains me.  Trouble will hit me but my faith will not break.  May God use me in whatever way He deems best for His glory.


  1. You are such a fighter to stay in this world, and your faith tells you the best is yet to come. Love You.............Dad

  2. I sent this to Jay and Alicia this morning. What a powerful message in just a few words! I thank God for allowing me the blessing of knowing and growing from you.

  3. Thanks, Angie. I am sure your tenacity is an encouragement to others who are going through difficult times.
    II Cor 1:3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. 6 Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 7 And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation."
