let's keep our eyes on the prize

the Spirit Himself bears witness with our own spirits that we are children of God; and if we are children, then we are also heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with the Messiah - provided we are suffering with Him in order also to be glorified with Him.  

i don't think the sufferings we are going through now are even worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed to us in the future.  romans 8:16-18 complete jewish bible version

to keep our eyes on eternity - the glory that will be revealed- is the key to endurance in the suffering of right now.  suffering happens so often and it touches every one of us.  no one is untouched.  but only to those who choose to follow Him and embrace being wronged and love like He did, like He does, will there be a payoff for the suffering.  but if we suffer with Him we will be raised just like Him.  and in that time we will never ever suffer again.  now that is something to be excited about!
