Oh the suffering…

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Romans 8:18 ESV


We all suffer. Especially now with the horrible news of innocent shooting. People are scared to leave their houses for fear of being shot. It’s horrible and I can’t even comprehend the pain that the family is going through.

With this horrible suffering blanketing our country and world, we must remember the glory that awaits us in the future. Once we are children of God, the suffering we encounter now does not measure up to the glory we will find in Heaven. 

Suffering can come in all shapes and sizes. The wrongful death of a loved one. A lost relationship. Hatred from a trusted friend. Loss of a job. It’s all going to find us one time or another, but focusing on the future will only grant us stength to keep going. A strength coming only from our heavenly father.
