Monday Manna for May 2

The purpose of Monday Manna to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word. Each Thursday, a Bible verse to ponder will be posted, either here or at my dear friend Vonnie's blog, My Back Door. The following Monday, those participating will post their thoughts on the verse at their own blogs and link up at the bottom of the post in the Mr. Linky  gadget. The main purpose is to chew on the same Scripture and learn from one another.

I'm hosting this week.

Was having trouble picking a verse this week - but this one jumped out at me as I did my daily Bible reading this morning.  Can't wait to ponder it -- and hear what you guys have to say!
“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.” John 16:33
Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to your thoughts - and mine - on Monday

Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
