Daily Encouragement: Day 135

From Handbook to Wisdom, Day 135 (Promises)

The worst pains I will experience in this life
are as nothing in comparison
to the glory that is to come.

Since I am a child of God, I am an heir of God
and a joint heir with Christ,
if indeed I share in His sufferings in order that I
may also share in His glory.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time
are not worth comparing with the glory that
will be revealed to me.
(Romans 8:17–18)

O Lord, this brief earthly existence is fraught with hardships and disappointments, but I know that even these will contribute to the glory to come. As a joint heir with Christ, I will receive that which will endure forever and will never fade away. Amen.
