So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18
Our ultimate hope when we are experiencing terrible illness, persecution, or pain is the realization that this life is not all there is–there is life after death! Knowing that we will live forever with God in a place without sin and suffering can help us live above the pain that we face in this life.
Any trouble that you have in your life or problem should be looked at from a higher perspective. You can live life with problems and let them take you into a pit of self-pity, or you can view your problems as a “ladder” enabling you to view your life from God’s perspective. When you look at things from a higher perspective you allow and accept God to feed you through his spirit how your problems really are. Rather than living out your problems with pity and sorrow, allow Gods blessings and teachings to become visible in your life!
