Today's Verse: Romans 8:18

Saturday, August 18, 2012

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
— Romans 8:18

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Life is pain... Anyone who says differently is selling you something." This line from the movie "Princess Bride" is poignantly accurate. However, it is not eternally accurate! Better days are ahead for those who follow Jesus, and these better days are far better than anything we can begin to imagine. As the old song says, "O that will be, glory for me ... when by Thy grace I shall look on His face, that will be glory ..."

My Prayer...

Please, Almighty God, give me the courage and the vision to anticipate from afar the ultimate realization of grace that you have waiting for me and to truly believe that you are working to bring me home to you, and to that glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
