Throughout my life, it seems like I’ve lived through endless days, of one painful moment after another. In fact, I remember times, when I never was able to handle these moments, as I do now. Now don’t get me wrong…I’m not perfect and I still face weaknesses like the next person; but I have truly come to see how God has used time, to bring me to a better place…a place where I am stronger and have learned to lean on a mighty God through it all.
As I look back to the many years of long and drawn out recoveries…counseling and just what seemed to be one bad day after another, I am now seeing those days as stepping stones…stepping stones that have brought me to where God has longed for me to be. It wasn’t easy, as much of the pathway was rugged and tiring; but it was God’s strength and friendship that kept me going…at times, when I wanted to give up.
You know…when a person has faced so much…and continues to face even more, as I have; these times can seem very overwhelming, as each painful problem continues to be stacked before me; but when I think on how long eternity is…which is endless; my problems…and even the painful moments of the past don’t seem to look the way that I once saw them.
In Romans 8:18, we read… “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” No matter what you may be facing right now…or no matter how difficult life has been for you; just know that a time will come, when those who truly know Jesus, as their personal Savior, will enter another time…a time that will seem endless…compared to the sufferings of today.
