John 16:21-22 – A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.

Know and understand the season that you are in. Are you going through labour pains? Joy will soon follow and no one can take that joy away. Sometimes we find ourselves in hard times but we must never be hopeless. Right now you may even be facing bouts of depression but you’re not alone. The God who reached down low to save you has not forgotten you. Abandon yourself in His grace by spending time alone with Him and do this this one thing, listen. ‘But take heart! I have overcome the world’ Love and grace to you.
