“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Romans 8:18




What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.

– Romans 8:18





Take heart

…we shall be included in the radiance of the coming glory

which will put in the shadow all our present sufferings


No sooner are we called to our Maker,

that our souls will be freed from evil and unbelief,

from doubts and fears,

and from everything that is distressing.


This present time is but a short time

– a little while, and all sufferings will be at an end;

they can never be compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.


Christ has promised His saints eternal glory!


[today’s reflection inspired by John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible.]





"Who is there then, who will not strive to attain so great a glory,

by making himself God’s friend, to rejoice immediately with Christ,

to receive the divine rewards after the pains and sufferings of this life?”


– St. Cyprian





Father, in Heaven, All-loving Creator, My Rock,

I thank You for always being here, right by my side.

– You are my great consolation!


Sometimes, Lord, I am close to giving up,

but then I read Your Word

– It is Your voice –

and I look at You

and know that You hear my plea;

I know that You care

…and you make my burden lighter.


Lord, console and strengthen me

and help me overcome the difficulties of this life

that I may look forward with joy to Your promise.
