"for our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."
so how do we let go of our current troubles to focus on the eternal glory?
the easy answer is to go to God with it. i know that's what i should do, but don't always apply it. and sometimes the here and now is much more consuming than thinking about the glory that is to come.
i think that's when we need to remember the big picture of it all. yes, we still need to work our way through our current situations, while working on not getting bogged down in them. i know i need to look ahead at what's to come, and remember who is guiding me.
and when i do that, i feel more at ease with the grace and peace God gives. because i know this momentary trouble will soon pass, and in the days or months ahead it become less and less important. my prayer is that as i am able to do that...that we are able to do that. that my focus can be on that big picture...the eternal glory...that God has for me.
