I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:

January 26

GIVE UP THE ILLUSIONS that you deserve a problem-free life. Part of you is still hungering for the resolution of all difficulties. This is a false hope! As I told My disciples, in the world you will have trouble. Link your hope not to problem solving in this life but to the promise of an eternity of problem-free life in heaven. Instead of seeking perfection in this fallen world, pour your energy into seeking Me: the Perfect One.
It is possible to enjoy Me and glorify Me in the midst of adverse circumstances. In fact, My Light shines most brightly through believers who trust Me in the dark. That kind of trust is supernatural: a production of My indwelling Spirit. When things seem all wrong, trust Me anyway. I am much less interested in right cirumstances than in right responses to whatever comes your way.

   ”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.” ー John 16:33

   Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and
   compassionate and righteous man. . . . He will have no fear of bad
   news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. ー Psalm 112:4, 7
