But God IS

The future's uncertain. How will it work out? I can't see the way.

But God IS.

Relationships weaken, feelings hurt, wounds fester.

But God IS.

Loved ones get sick. Kids struggle. Friends tire and weaken.

But God IS.

Prices soar. Worries abound. A dollar doesn't stretch like it used to.

But God IS.

We know tears, sorrow, heartache, anxiety.

But God IS.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

John 16:33

In this world you will have trouble. I know it. I feel it. I live it. I watch it. I don't like it, and some days it's too much.

But God IS.

And somehow knowing God IS--knowing He's there and in control, on the throne, aware of these earthly problems--somehow knowing He IS brings a sigh, a glimmer of hope. It brings enough to press on.

Take heart, my friends. Life is hard.

But God IS.

How does knowing God IS give you courage?
