“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us.” Romans 8:18
I was reading another person’s blog tonight … http://jtsooner24.wordpress.com/2012/02/20/suffering-glory/ … it shared a story of a man’s favorite Bible verse. This verse has such meaning. Take a second and head on over to read the story for yourself.
How many times do we read the scriptures over and over and miss things. I have read this verse many times. It had never stood out to me like it did after reading this person’s blog.
This past year had been a lot of “suffering” in ways that just were not the normal me. There were a lot of issues to deal with. Today as I read this verse, I realized how futile the suffering really was in comparison to the day I reach heaven. Yes, each day is hard and has its own things to deal with, but with knowing and being reminded that everything we go through on earth is nothing compared to the day we enter Glory! The Bible gives us glimpses of heaven … I can’t wait to see it in its fullest.
