Word Filled Wednesday

This is a great way to pair a scripture verse with a favorite picture of yours. For more word filled Wednesday posts stop by 160 Acre Woods blog and check them out. Be prepared to be blessed!!

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."
This passage was my Grandfather's favorite passage of scripture. It should be a reminder that no matter what we go through here we are to keep our eyes on the heavenly Father. Even though there will be days when everything seems to be going wrong (health, money, family ect) we need to remember that these are only temporary! One day we will be in glory with perfect bodies, no pain, no worry! There is a light at the end....Jesus Christ, just put your trust in him.
