Consider the Glory to be Revealed

I read the first verse of the passage I was going to write about today and stopped. Romans 8:18 "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us."

So often I look at the things I've gone through in just the last 5 years and think I've suffered. What a joke to think that any of that matters. These are things that God has allowed to be in my life because he knew I could either handle it, learn from it, or help someone else in. And for the most part, I've failed him over and over. And I continue to right now. I whine all day long about my job and my loss of the last one. I complain about all the other stresses my little family has faced with job changes to medical issues to financial struggles.

Well it's time to start focusing on the glory that is to be revealed to us. We will have perfect EVERYTHINGS. In Heaven with the Almighty God, Creator, Savior, Lord, the Holy One, GOD, we will have prefect bodies, understanding, and perspective on who He is. Perfectly worshiping the one true God, we will forever be with Him. How much greater will the revelations of God's perfect glory be? We must stop considering our suffering as anything and realize the glory to be revealed.

Praise the Glorious God.
