"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us." ESV
Suffering is something we all understand. Some much more than others. While we are in a time of suffering, we become focused on how bad it is, how nearly impossible it is to handle. Have we gotten so caught up in the suffering that our Lord told us we would experience in this world that we forget to look to Him for comfort? He has promised us that whatever suffering we experience on this earth will totally fade and be forgotten when get into eternity with Him. If we are suffering, let's look up and get snuggled up in His hands. The time is coming when all this suffering will be long forgotten, but worth it all.
Heavenly Father, sometimes we don't understand why we go through the suffering we do, but we know You have prepared an eternal place for us that knows no suffering. We thank You that our suffering is so temporary and that You are here to comfort us until we get there. In Your Precious name we pray, Amen.
