John 16:33 says here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by this place we live in. The hardships we go through, the situations we have to decipher, even the people we have deal with can be enough to drag life down to an immediate stop. It is here, when you feel you cannot continue, that you remember Jesus and the example he gave. Here is a man who had never done a single thing wrong, in fact he literally saved lives, and yet even he was faced with the trials of this earth. Yet while he was being beaten by his own people, being spit on and forced to carry the very thing they used to kill him to his death, he says God please forgive then. He doesn’t stop he goes all the way to his death and then joins his father as will we some day, we just need to keep trekking and keep the faith no matter what life throws.
