"Take Courage, I have conquered the world!"

A few nights ago, I began to ponder the time in which Jesus was born, and the darkness of the world under Herod's rule. How Joseph must have felt when, "The angel of the Lord appeared and said, 'Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.' What must have been going through Mary's mind, as she fled, tired and heavy of heart, to an unfamiliar place while Herod killed millions of babies in his bloodthirsty search for the newborn King? A few nights ago, I could only imagine.
Tonight, as the world rejoices, my heart is filled with grief. As a mother raising a beautiful little girl in this world, I have come that much closer to understanding what Our Blessed Mother must have gone through.
Let us pray for the grace to get through these times by reflecting upon the words of Her Son, Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, Who said,
"Amen, Amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief will become joy." (Jn 16:20) "So you also are now in anguish. But I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you."(Jn 16:22) "I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world." (Jn 16:33) "Blessed Be God!" ~ Georgia

  1. Thank you so much for this Georgia. I have been clinging to my Bible and making sure I read the daily readings. I have found comfort in them, but I am still filled with sorrow and anger at our nation. I'm not sleeping well and fear the world that I have brought my 3 beautiful children into. I thought it was the land of the free, but I'm afraid that it's not going to stay that way and I'm truly scared.

  2. Karen, Take heart in our Lord's words when he says,
    "Be still and know that I AM GOD!"
    God created YOU and your beautiful children to be a part of this world, at this time for a reason. Your love for Him is MOST needed during this time in our country.
    He needs you and our country need you now more than ever. Fear is product of the devil. Remember, you are in this world, but not of this world. Our true citizenship is in Heaven! I will keep you close in prayer. God Bless You, Karen! ~ Georgia
