Eternal Wait

2 Corinthians 4:17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;”

Our light and momentary struggles prepare us for an eternal weight of glory! I am a part of God’s plan to bring glory to His name. And as His daughter, through Christ’s amazing sacrifice, i will share in His glory. My pain right now is molding me to share in that eternal glory.

Admittedly though, many days I only feel the “wait”. This morning in one of my more reflective moments, I was pondering loss, and grief. I asked the question I am sure millions before me have grappled with: “Will there ever come a time, when I am no longer sad? Does the sadness ever dissipate entirely?” Yes, time heals, time changes, time forces us to move on. But time cannot erase. The truth is, I may always bear a sense of sadness in this life. There may never come a time when I don’t feel deeply our family’s loss. But that is only the truth for now. That is only true in this world where time exerts so much control over us.

What time can never do for us, Christ will do.

Eternal Wait

Eternal wait oh Lord it seems,
But in the darkness Your glory streams,
The wait will end,
The weight begin.
The hope of Glory will be made known,
When I am finally safe at home.
