I can’t see what’s around the corner ….. but I do know there will be some challenges. We were never promised a ‘walk in the park’ ….. but a path of suffering ….. trials ….. and opportunities to forgive. We are also assured that ‘these light afflictions’ are nothing compared to the glorious future for those who persevere. So ….. don’t be shocked. Be ready! Make sure you are on the winning team!
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4: 16-18
