Ups and downs in life.......

For His anger is but for a momentHis favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.(Psalm 30:5)
Ahh . . . the ups and downs of life! One minute we are celebrating a baby's birth and the next day we hear of a death. One day a new job drops into our lap and suddenly another day we are laid off due to staff budget cuts. One day celebrating how God moved on a mission trip and soon after we are praying for the very same people we served to be protected from the wrath of a hurricane! Real life . . . ups and downs . . . it happens to all of us. . . saved and unsaved . . . it's life!

As Jesus was about to go to the cross, He left His friends with comforting words of assurance: hold on!
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
Keep trusting the Savior . . . we who believe are overcoming and shall overcome one day!
