But then I remind myself that life is just a fraction of a moment in eternity. Like a tape measure, Life is just the first increment on that tape measure. Eternity is way longer than 'life'!
In this scripture Jesus says it well: John 16 v 21: "A woman, when she is in labour, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world."
and v 22: "Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
Wow, what a great thing to look forward to. Now, just to get through 'life' in one piece!
My encouragement to you is to remember that life is just a fraction of eternity and eternity with Christ is pain free, joy-filled, and abundant in ways we cannot even imagine.
