Jesus said that we would have sorrow in this world. But He left us with promises: we have the Holy Spirit, we have His words, we have His eternal life, we have each other, and we have constant access to the Father. (John 14-16) He told us that we are to “Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” (16:24). While there is trouble in this world, He has overcome all. And He wants us to live in His joy. So let’s pray that our “joy may be full.”
