Beth and I have had a hard three years, including the passing of two parents, personal challenges, and relational struggles. Yet the other day, as I was riding my bicycle on a glorious spring afternoon, I realized that perhaps I was coming out the other end of our various tribulations.
Though hard to describe, my condition took on a glorious sunny side while walking in the light, and seeing things more clearly.
John quotes Jesus as saying: "These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me, you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)
So here's my take-home thought: if we can just trust, and wait and wait and wait, and perhaps wait some more, He will overcome the tribulation and carry us with Him.
