Look Again

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.   Romans 8.18
So. There you have it. Our sufferings are not even worthy of comparison - they don't merit consideration, are not significant enough to deserve contemplation - when compared with the condition that will be ours.

And yet it is so very easy to get caught up with the sorrow, the lack, the suffering, the pain. Life supplies challenging and hard seasons. We must admit that to be true. But...

...we must recognize that the greatest thing is His promise. In all honesty, I have seen Christ transform me in measure through the difficulties of life. The work He does is wonderful, outweighing every hard thing, supplying grace in times of suffering. And beyond this limited existence that we know here on earth eternity looms, awaiting His rule and reign.

So no more majoring on the hard things, the difficult situations, the "woe-is-me" stuff. Eyes riveted to the future, the hope, the glory that is to be revealed, we will press on and overcome the trouble, the disappointment, the sacrifice.

I am reminded today that no thing compares. Nothing.
