“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.”
Most people today only pay attention to the ‘short game’, focusing on the struggle of the day and seeking anything they can find to relieve the stress, struggle, difficulty NOW, TODAY…but Christian you have been called specifically to the ‘long game’. If we keep our eyes on the ultimate goal and don’t allow temporary issues to consume our lives WE WILL BE WIN THE RACE, and these words will greet your entry into eternal life “Well done good and faithful servant”! Play the long game, run the good race, fight the good fight…..If you set you ‘face as flint’ HE WILL SUPPLY the strength you need! See you at the finish line!
