Take Heart

 

Today I found these words from Holly Gerth so very helpful and uplifting.

”We all have stress, bad days, and hard times. We all know what it’s like to have life disappoint us. We’re all on this wild and crazy ride together. So as the roller coaster of your life zooms, I want to place my hand on top of yours—the hand that’s desperately clinging to the safety bar in front of you—and holler into the wind whipping past our faces, “You’re going to be okay!”You’re going to survive this ride. One way or another. It will not last forever. It will not destroy, derail, or defeat you. Someday you may even be able to look back at it and see it differently than you do today.Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble.” and we do… but then he added this: “But take heart! I have overcome the world”. In other words, “Take heart! You’re going to be okay.”Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but eventually…and even better yet, eternally.”
Holley Gerth {inspired by John 16:33; 2 Cor. 4:17; Heb. 11:1 and adapted from If We Could Have Coffee…(ebook)}
