Don't Lose Heart

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Let us live like Paul today, with eyes locked on Jesus.  Paul learned to be content, at peace, in every circumstance because he understood that God was working all things out for his good. This world is not our home; everything we see will someday pass away.  We fix our eyes on what is not seen, an eternal glory that far outweighs all the troubles of this world.

  2. Lisa,

    Everything in this world is temporary, only Jesus is eternal, that is where our hope is, in Jesus.

    Blessings to you Lisa.

  3. Amen Lisa... Wonderful encouragement!

    Seeing past our daily trials and keeping our gaze fixed on God's Kingdom places everything in the proper perspective, and fills us with the hope Christ brought us.

    Have a Blessed Day!

  4. Needed this today. One of my kids seems to be rushing headlong into things and I need to trust that God is in control, even though it doesn't look like it.
    Thanks, Lisa!
