It is in these moments when you sit down and really feel like crying,
and your heart is heavy with other people's struggles in your life,
"Therefore do not lose heart, for outwardly we are wasting away, but inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For these slight and momentary afflictions are preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure."
2 Corinthians 4:16-17
It's the beautiful refining fire of God. Don't look at the waves, just the Lord and His vision.
