05/02 1 Thessalonians 3:1-3
Finally, when we could stand it no longer, we decided that I should stay alone in Athens, 2 and we sent Timothy to visit you. He is our co-worker for God and our brother in proclaiming the Good News of Christ. We sent him to strengthen you, to encourage you in your faith, 3 and to keep you from becoming disturbed by the troubles you were going through. But, of course, you know that such troubles are going to happen to us Christians.
Every one of us has to deal with many troubles. Jesus is the strength and encouragement that we need as we face each days challenges. Take your trouble to Jesus. He is our victory.
