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.
These are Jesus' words to his disciples about events that were about to unfold, events that will lead to the cross, and, thankfully, beyond.
And what comforting words for those needing comfort, those who have seen trouble in this world because people of faith aren't fashionable these days: "But take heart! I have overcome the world."
So keep the faith, in the struggles of stroke recovery, in the tribulations of this world. He's done the hard work - to your benefit.
