16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 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.
AMEN to that!!
On my bathroom wall I have taped notes from a sermon from months ago and I read it everyday. It is a reminder of how Christians are supposed to act and how they are to treat others. It is an ideal I fail at everyday but I am striving to improve and asking God to help me. I also have to remember that my sisters, like me, often are trying too and fail just as much.. so again we should be patient with each other.
