16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
I’ve been feeling sorry for myself ever since I got the bad news about my disability. But in my devotions this morning, I came across these verses and it really uplifted me.
In this world, we are going to run into hardships. It’s inevitable.
But as the Bible tells us in John 16:33,
33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
All we have to do is hold on to that promise and one day we will be made new!
for King and Country has a song called “Fix My Eyes.” It’s a great song and part of the lyrics go like this:
The things of Earth are dimming
In the light of Your glory and grace
I’ll set my sights upon Heaven
I’m fixing my eyes on you, on you
The Lord is coming back soon! All we have to do is fix our eyes upon Him!
