In the world we see and experience a lot of trouble, but that trouble doesn't have to define us or our future. We have received on this day a gift from God. Through His Son, we can be freed from the trouble of this world. We can overcome it!
Jesus was born as a baby and changed the course of human history. When we allow Him into our lives, He can change us, too. We can be equipped with what we need to overcome the troubles and trials of this world. We can take heart and prepare for eternal life with God by accepting gift of His Son, from the infant in the manger to the crucified and resurrected Savior!
Take heart, believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior, and be prepared to overcome this world!
Thank You for the gift of Your Son. Help me to always take heart in Your promises, strength, and love. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
