Our present troubles

Food For Thought #79

I have a whole stack on  notes with verses on them that inspired me, and this was one that really stuck me today. 

2 Corinthians 4:13-18:

But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.” We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you. All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.


  1. Hey Mikayla! I just wanted to let you know that I have been praying for you. I hope that whatever troubles that you are facing, that you would hang in there and hold on to God's hand.

    I'll be praying that you have a wonderful weekend and week next week! :)
