1 Peter 1:8 Though you have not seen him, you love him.]Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,
Don’t be fixated on your pain; be focused on your joy.
2 Corinthians 4:8-12
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT 16That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are[a] being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
1 Peter:19 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
The challenge for us is to actually DO THIS [rejoice with joy]!
