Fix Your Eyes On What Is Unseen

Five days a week I go jogging at our local Metroparks.  While jogging I feel pain in my legs, but I keep on going.  My mind is telling me to stop, but I keep on going.

It’s easy to give up and quit when you’re experiencing trouble and pain.

So, how do I keep on jogging without stopping?  I fix my mind on what is unseen… the finish line.  I fix my mind on the rewards that come from jogging (strong heart, healthy body, etc.).  You can’t see these rewards at the start, but they come at the finish line. 


“Therefore, we do not lose heart.  Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” -2 Corinthians 4:16-18


The same can be said with any troubles and pains you’re currently experiencing in life.  They’re for your own good, “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”

Don’t give up hope.  The pain you’re experiencing now is only temporary.  There is an ETERNAL GLORY that far outweighs all your troubles.

Renew your strength by serving Christ.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Submit Yourself To God

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe it’s the year 2016.  Whoa!  Where does the time go?  Sounds like we’re in the future or something.  ha

Anywho, if you haven’t already, start the year off right!


“Submit yourselves, then to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to God and he will come near to you.” -James 4:7-8


Yes!  Submit yourself to God.  Ask God to make your crooked paths straight.  Come near to God and he will come near to you.  Resist the Devil and he will flee.

As you go through this year, and life, call upon almighty God for strength.  Live His will and you’ll have peace, no matter what trials you go through.

The God Of All Comfort

You ever go through life wondering why bad things happen?

Like, what’s the reason someone gets cancer, or their child is sick, or you go through a divorce.

I used to think the their wasn’t a reason for anything.  But, after reading 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, it hit me… the reason you went through that divorce or suffered from cancer is to help others who are suffering what you just went through.

Who better to comfort you than someone who has gone through the same experience, and got through it with God’s comfort.


“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” -2 Corinthians 1:3-4


What a powerful passage.

The next time you’re going through your trial, remember God is there to comfort you.  And, the reason you’re going through that trial just may be to comfort someone else going through the same thing.
