What we see will last only a
short time, but what we cannot see
will last forever.
“For some of you, the journey has been long.
Very long and stormy.
In no way do I wish to minimize the difficulties
that you have had to face along the way.
Some of you have shouldered burdens
that few of us could ever carry.
You have bid farewell to life long partners.
You have been robbed of life long dreams.
You have been given bodies that can’t sustain your spirit.
You have spouses who can’t tolerate your faith.
You have bills that outnumber the paychecks
and challenges that outweigh the strength.
And you are tired.
It’s hard for you to see the City in the midst of the storms.
The desire to pull over to the side of the road
and get out entices you.
You want to go on, gut some days the road seems so long…..
Let me encourage you…..God never said that
the journey would be easy, but He did say that the
arrival would be worthwhile.”
Max Lucado–In the Eye of the Storm
This is a devotion I have marked in Max Lucado’s book
“Grace for the Moment” which
has helped me in times of trouble.
I hope it brings peace.
