Light & Momentary


The diagnosis is in

Tinnitus

a word that I can't even pronounce

but a word that I have to deal with.

Simplified~

Ringing in the ears.

Yup

Besides my gazillion thoughts

that fill my brain non stop

I now have ringing.

It is like I have a circus in my head.

It is not life threatening

but I will make it life threatening

when I

focus

on the ringing

because

all I will hear is the ringing in my head~

forever.

Forever~

as long as I am here,

I will have this...

So

Is this one of those

Light and momentary troubles

that is

achieving for me

an

eternal glory that

far outweighs them all? 2 Corinthians 4:17

Light and momentary

Scripture calls our troubles

Light and momentary

even though they seem quite burdensome.

BUT

Does God know how big

breast cancer or a brain tumor is...

0r

having a prodigal child

or

even an ache in your body,

or addiction is?

How are they

Light and momentary?

What is your Light and momentary trouble

that you are experiencing at this moment?

Whatever it may be

it is

Light and momentary

when

compared to the eternal glory

that we will be experiencing

in a blink of an eye.

Heavy on earth

but

light

in Glory eyes...

Now that is Forever!

“These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There's far more here than meets the eye.

The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow.

But the things we can't see now will last forever.”Corinthians 4:17-18

If we trust God with the big stuff~

Our Salvation...

why not trust Him with the "little" stuff...

the

Light and momentary~

what is seen here.

Size of

Our God

determines the size of

Our Faith.

Big God, Little Problem.

Little God, Big Problem

"God is bigger than the boogie man" (may I quote veggitales).

How do I move beyond

How do you move beyond

our

Light and momentary

Troubles?

So we’re

not giving up.

How could we!

Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us,

on the inside, where God is making new life,

not a day goes by without His unfolding grace. 2 Corinthians 4:16

So we

fix our eyes not on what is seen, or heard or felt

but on what is unseen, the One who sees, hears, and feels our pain

since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18

My word for today is not

Tinnitus

Your word for today is not

______________________

(your "light and momentary" trouble)

Our Word for today is

Light and momentary

Because

our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that

far outweighs them all.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
