Strength from God

Sometimes I face difficult times in my life. During those times, verse 33b always gives me strength. In that verse Jesus said, “In this world you will have troubles. But be brave! I have defeated the world!”
Annie Johnson was eight years old when she decided to follow Jesus. When Annie was twenty, she developed arthritis and her parents died. To support herself, Annie started writing poems for cards and magazines. By the time she was twenty-three, Annie could not walk any more and she had to use her knuckles to strike the keys on her typewriter. But one of her best-loved poems contains these words: “God has promised strength for the day, rest for the labor, light for the way, grace for the trials, help from above, unfailing kindness, undying love.”
Annie Johnson depended on God to help her be brave and strong. No matter what problems you are facing today, God will help you and give you strength and comfort.
