From the New International Version, out of John 16:33:
"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."
Whew! Good stuff. Jesus is talking and he speaks as it has been done already, not will be done. He has overcome the world. We don't have to settle for a life entangled in craziness and our sin. Jesus can set us free! I NEED that--sounds so good!
