“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
– John 1:4
The light is Jesus.
And the darkness is pain. That’s anxiety, hurt, loss, Satan, our own sin–all the things that makes life harder than it should be.
From this we know:
Life is hard. Life with Jesus is still hard. But life with Jesus wins in the end.
To me, I cannot think of a greater encouragement.
