Cheer Up

John 16:33 – “I have told you these things, so that you can have peace because of me. In this world you will have trouble. But cheer up!
I have won the battle over the world.”

Today was rough. Every judge or lawyer I interacted with was on edge. I felt like I was in a dog eat dog world, and I was wearing a milk bone necklace. I was just trying to make it through the day.


I’m afraid we all have those sort of days. We can’t explain it. We check the phase of the moon. The tides and the stars. But there is no logical explanation for why the day can be so difficult.

The good thing about days like these is that eventually, when they are over, we can lay our head down to sleep and know that tomorrow will be better.  For us as believers, we can rest in the fact that because of what Christ has done for us,  tomorrow will be better.

Remember what Christ has to say in this passage: Namely, that he has won the battle over this world.

Today, be of good cheer.

Have a blessed day.
