Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Yesterday, a beautiful friend and prayer warrior commented on my post. She referenced the above scripture. She inspired me. So, Mary, this one’s for you. <3 With lots of love…
I think my scale is off, because this pain sure feels heavy. I’m weighed down by fear. I’m trudging through the heaviness of disability. Some days I cannot even lift my arms. They feel so unbearably heavy. Too heavy to lift, even in praise.
But what I find in Your precious Word, Lord, is that my affliction is light. Your yoke is easy. Your burden is light. My scale is backward.
The heavy things are Your majesty, the price You paid, eternal glory. Those are the things I’m marching toward. Those are the things you’ve given me. Undeserved grace and mercy overflowing.
Under the weight of so much blessing, my arms seem to float higher of their own accord.
Heavenly Father, thank You for proper perspective. I love you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
