As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I am thinking about the word PERSPECTIVE. No matter how wonderful life seems to be going, if our SPIRIT is crushed, it’s almost impossible for us to experience JOY!
But when our PERSPECTIVE is Heaven, then we can endure almost anything! Fifty years from now, most of us will be long gone. Everything we went through on this earth will have no more meaning. The only thing that will matter is eternal life.
The Scriptures tell us in Romans 8:18, “I consider that the sufferings of the present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us“. Everything we go through, everything that God allows us to experience, is preparing us for an eternal life in HIS presence!
So today, realize that all of the suffering, the pain and loss, is nothing compared to the promise of eternal life, where there will be no more suffering, no more tears or pain. Keep things in PERSPECTIVE and today is going to be an amazing day, one day closer to being with the KING of KINGS.
Have a blessed day!
