God is Preparing You for Greater Things

Life on planet Earth is hard. Life is not fair. People hurt you, abandon you, and leave for no good reason. We live in a fallen world. We aren’t in Heaven yet.

We are merely passing through this fallen place. We are here to bring the light and love of Jesus. Shine your light in the darkness. Pursue peace and good will with all men and women. Let God sort out the rest. He is our hope of glory, Christ in us.

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. – Philippians 3:20-21 NIV

Take heart my friends. Strengthen yourself in the Lord. This is just temporary. We will spend Eternity in Heaven with Jesus!

 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come. Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. – Hebrews 13:14-16 NIV
