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, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV
When we walk through the fire of tribulation in life, we sometimes find it difficult to see the light that shines at the end of the tunnel. Putting our trust in God through believing in His Son, Jesus, enables us to hope. This may seem futile to those who don't believe, but for those who do it marks our troubles as temporary. We are not promised a world without trouble and we are definitely aging every day. But those who follow Christ are promised renewal as we reach toward and trust in our eternal Savior. We are given hope for what will forever be and the blessed assurance that Jesus will walk with us through all that we experience during our temporary trials. Let's fix our eyes on what is unseen as we pass through what we are seeing now in this fallen world. Going through some things is just that: going through. We have a Savior who assures us that as we put our faith in Him, He will be with us through all our troubles to the eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
