Topic: Good News!
The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. – Matthew 11:5, NIV

When we’re living for the Lord, there is always a silver lining. Somewhere there’s a Romans 8:28 moment.
When John the Baptist grew discouraged, Jesus sent him a word of Good News! So if you’re discouraged right now, look around quickly for something good from God. For why should you feel discouraged? Why should the shadows come? Why should your heart feel lonely when Jesus is your portion, your constant friend? You can say with the hymnist, “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.”
Suffering, failure, loneliness, sorrow, discouragement, and death will be part of your journey, but the Kingdom of God will conquer all these horrors. No evil can resist grace forever. – Brennan Manning
