John 1:1-5 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
I think this verse is telling us that Jesus is the Word and it’s telling us that Jesus and God are one and the same. It’s also telling us that even today that nothing was made without Him. Jesus gives us light and eternal life. The darkness has not and never will overcome the light because He is light and created the light.
God is good to us each and every day. His mercies are new each and every day. I’m in jail because of something that I did. I used to blame everything that went wrong in my life on God but I have come to a deeper understanding and walk with my Savior. Is it hard to be in here away from the ones I love? Yes, it is, but I know that my family loves me and that I have to lean on Jesus. I know where I’m going at the end of all of this and that is what really matters.
Just remember that Jesus loves you and have faith that He arose and ascended and is on the right hand of God making intercession for us. Just remember that God loves us. It is that simple.
