I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. ---- Romans 8:18
Is it worth it?
Oh yes! It's more than worth it.
We can't begin to imagine the glory God has in store for us.
No matter how hard, bad, or painful our trip through this world may be, our future with God holds something incomparably better.
Does that mean my difficulties are meaningless or insignificant?
But our future glory with God does mean that it is more than worth it to hang in, to be faithful, and to receive his glorious reward!
I confess that I don't like suffering, pain,disappointment, persecution, or sorrow. I do, however, believe that your promises are true. I hold on to the promise that the glory you have in store for me is far greater than the difficulties I face. Strengthen me for the days ahead and use me to bring you glory no matter what my current situation may be.
I am so glad that I have read the book and know the ending- I am trusting in God completely.
