This is just a stop on the way! 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Good morning everyone,
Have you ever wondered why you were created?  Have you ever wondered why your were special enough to actually be one that survived all the possibilities of not being here?  Think a minute brothers and sisters!  This life is all due to the fact that God thought you were important enough to spend a little time of eternity on this planet earth.  In other words, He thinks that you are important enough to be placed here in this temporary home as you pass through to something much greater!  Think of this period of time as your elementary stage in preparation for what is in store.  1 Corinthians 2:9 says, 'But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.'  Something so big that we would not fully understand even if we knew exactly what He has prepared.  Hopefully you are tracking with me.  It is kind of mind boggling to think that each of us have an opportunity to take advantage of what God will reveal to us when the time is right.  Christmas time is coming boys and girls and the present that you are going to open is Jesus Christ himself. This is just a temporary stop on the way to where we are going!  2 Corinthians 4:17-18 says, 'For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.'  All your troubles, all your burdens, all your heartaches, all are temporary because the Present that you are going to inherit is going to take them all away.  In the mean time think of those things that are unseen and dwell on them!  May God richly Bless you as you seek His face and let Him be the Craftsman in developing you like He wants!  Enjoy Carrie Underwoods video about this being our temporary home!
Your brother in Christ,
