Day 8: Overcomer

It is impossible to normalize

all that is going on in this world today

with its pain, suffering, &loss~

but didn't JESUS tells us that

"In this world you will have trouble"

But HE doesn't stop there~

"But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33)

REAL LIFE has REAL trouble

from the moment trouble entered into the perfect garden

through one little bite.

BUT GOD didn't stop there.

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”

Even though we know the TRUTH,

don't you want to shout, “WHY GOD WHY

as soon as trouble, dressed as pain & suffering comes knocking at our door?


"In this world you will have trouble"

in every REAL STORY & in every REAL LIFE~

mine, yours & everyone else.


Even JESUS, who lived a perfect life,

yet suffered beyond any kind of suffering that we may ever experience.

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”


who never gives up on us even in our WHY GOD WHY moments.

Oh how HE tells us over & over again~

Look in MY WORD.

I know life is hard.

I am so sorry for it being this way.

It’s not MY fault.

I am GOD & once sin came in I had to take care of it.

I am so sorry MY child that you have to suffer,

but please look at what I am capable of.

I gave up my SON so you can have a much better life.

I protected Joseph, after what his brothers did to him.

I gave David a second chance.

I transformed Saul into Paul.

I cry when you suffer, but don’t you get it.

This life is so temporary. It isn’t what it seems.

I know, because I wrote the book.


I didn’t say it was going to be easy

Life is filled with births & deaths.

It is filled with loss & gain.

I am telling you the truth.

I didn’t paint a rosy picture, until I sent MY SON.

I gave everyone a million chances.

I always provided the solution.

They just didn’t listen to ME.

When you don’t listen & when you don’t trust,

you are adding so much more pain that already exists in this fallen world.

I am sick of this world also, but I am not sick of you.

I love you with an everlasting love.

I am so sorry for the pain you are experiencing,

but it will end.

It is just part of this fallen world.

You just wait & see what I have in store for you.

You will be blown away.

It is better than you could ever imagine.

It will be worth it.

I just have to do what I have to do because I am GOD.

. I am sorry that I have to use many different means to get your attention.

But just hold on, enjoy the ride because I am driving.

I am in control.

You can’t stop suffering, pain, trials, & most of all death.

BUT I solved the problem.

JESUS was resurrected. And you will be too.

Why do you think I did that?

Why do you think I allowed MY SON to go through so much pain?

It wasn’t fun for ME or for HIM.

HE did it for you.

To end all pain & suffering.

Hang in there.

You might as well just enjoy it,

because there is no escape.

I am sorry.

I had to do things MY way, because I see the bigger picture.

You may have to live in this imperfect world,

"But take heart! I have overcome the world”

So cling to ME.

Be empowered by the SPIRIT.

Look to JESUS.

It may not seem like enough at times,

but it is.

I didn’t have to give you anything,

but I did because I love you.


Drink from the scriptures daily.

It is the only way to survive in this life.

You will experience ME, if you constantly seek ME with your whole heart.

Get the message.

Why do you think I included the people in MY WORD in the first place.

David is labeled the "man after MY own heart", but look at his life

He committed adultery.

My plan still came about.

I am not a bad guy.

Moses broke my ten commandments.

Now that was a big one.

Look how Peter denied CHRIST three times.

Can you believe it?

No one in the bible lived a perfect life,

because it is impossible.

Cover yourself with the blood of MY SON,

because I want you.

I have to punish sin, but I provided a way out.

Let ME into your life, into your heart & help ME to get MY WORD out.

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”

Thank you GOD for overcoming the world

because of your SON who made the way~
