Acts 14:22 …strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. "We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said.
In pain, we want to lay our burdens down. In pain, there are many times when we do not want to carry on. Our eyes may fill with tears as we undergo days, weeks, months, or years of hardship without end. Yet, we must carry on, for God has made a perfect place for us. God expects us not to give up but to get ahead of our trials. Certainly, many of our trials are much larger than we are. However, God is bigger than all of our trials combined. The size of God dwarfs the size of creation infinite sizes over. In the span of time, from eons in the past to eons into the future, our many hardships today melt away into the infinite glory, grace, and love of God. Our pain today shall melt away into God's joy in the morning. Our anguish today shall be as no more in His power of love pouring over us each moment. Praise His Name. Amen.
