Joy Will Overcome Sorrow

The disciples were sad that Jesus was leaving them, but they would see Him again and their joy would overshadow their sorrow. He illustrated it this way, “A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world” (John 16:21).
Likewise, we have times of sadness now, but later we will have such joy that we will no longer remember the sadness.
Are you preparing yourself for that time of great joy?
