Jesus assured his disciples that even though they may experience grief and hardship in the present, in their future they will find joy. No one will be able to go through life without times of struggle, but we will make it through because Jesus has overcome the world. He has given us life. Have faith that you won’t be lost in darkness forever, but even in the darkness, God is always there by your side.
Game Plan: Write this on a Post-It and stick it somewhere you will see it: I trust that no matter what happens, God has a plan for me and will never leave my side. Even if it doesn’t make sense right now, you will likely see His purpose or the light that can shine out of the darkness in the future. You are not alone.
