Volcanoes in Bali and Vanuatu are on the verge of serious eruption. Another in Mexico is spewing ash.

North Korea says 5 million have volunteered for the military since threats by US President Trump, although I question their definition of ‘volunteer.’

In the USA both teams – Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears – stood for the National Anthem before Thursday night football.

NSW is losing control of the NRL as the Grand Final failed to sell out.

Every day we are surrounded by headlines that threaten our liftestyle.

You can be sure Jesus has the answer. “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world,” He said. (John 16: 33b) This is a profound statement mad to the disciples as Jesus prepared them for His departure. He had completed most of His divine mission, on the Cross lay ahead.

‘Believe in Me,” He encouraged the men. We must not give place to fear in the space reserved for worship. With Jesus on the Throne we are more than conquerors.

I certainly follow world events. They feed my prayer life but my outlook and my emotions are surrendered to the Lord. “You will have tribulation” He said. It’s a fact!

But My Jesus has ‘overcome the world’ and that encourages me to ‘take heart!”
