Romans 8:18New International Version (NIV)
Present Suffering and Future Glory
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
Happy New Year everyone! It is a joyus time. Balls dropped. Balloons flew away. Parties were overflowing and everyone had joy. Yet, now that you are awake and the sun has come up again on the first day of this year, some things are the same. Bills are still coming. Pains still won’t cease. Kids still won’t act right. Significant others and spouses still arguing with you and such. Family drama still commences. It seems like nothing changes after this new year high is gone. 2014 tells us to forget about the past, but what about the present? The gift of the present is we have a future! How things are now is not how they will be forever, just as how things were in 2014 did not last! Today, let’s continue to push forward. The future holds great things for us all. Be blessed!
