Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.
– John 16:33
There’s a lot of ugliness going on in the world right now. Manchester, London, Orlando… the list just keeps growing.
This verse has been circling around and around in my head and in my heart for days now. It’s more important than ever to remember that no matter how nasty things get, we’re still in the hands of God. His power is greater than that of bombs, guns, or knives, and greater than the power of the evil that wields them.
