For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. - Romans 8:18
Oh the days that I have felt like the puppy in this picture!! Poor little guy, he looks terrified, doesn't he? When I first saw this picture, I thought, “Silly dog, doesn't he know that's just a bubble?” My next thought, I'm sure straight from the Holy Spirit's conviction was, “Don't you?”
There are some pretty daunting troubles in this world, and many of us face more of them at once! Chronic illness, pain, disability, failed marriages and wandering children, a stack of bills, addiction, impossible choices.... the list could go on and on. Are these problems real? Very much so! Are they scary? Absolutely!
But in comparison to God's glory and power, these problems... yes all of them, and even multiple of them at one time... are mere bubbles. Seemingly substantial, but gone with a touch of the Master's hand. Colorful and swirling, but actually transparent and inconsequential.
Only because we have eternity secured. What can separate us? What can mere man do to us?
Let's cling to the very real, substantial hand of Christ our Lord through today's trials. Let's meet our bubbles head on, recognizing them for what they are!
Dear Lord, Your mercies are unfathomable to me. Help me to recognize that You are building me for a higher purpose than these bubbles that keep me filled with fear. In Jesus' Name, Amen...
