Bible Marginalia- Take Heart

Bible Marginalia Series- #120

John 16:33
"I have said these things to you that
 in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation.
But take heart; I have overcome the world."
There have been quite a few times
 in my years that this verse
 has brought me comfort.
The ultimate game-changer.
The living life wild card.
A "you can't touch me" tilt of the head.
Even when days are cloudy,
and without the glimmer
 of any sunshine-
the OVERCOMER arrives.

The devil and his adversaries
 have suffered defeat.
The final winner in this earthly
 lodging game is already declared.
And hope flutters anew in my heart.
And a song breaks forth.......
