"As Christians we are sorrowful yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything." - 2 Corinthians 6:10
Dear Lord, thank you for transporting my soul into your kingdom. Here, I live enriched by your grace, promised help, and final glorious destiny. All the while, my body lives in the challenges and tragedies of this life. So, I can have real joy even while I grieve over my earthly losses. I can have real wealth while being challenged by my limitations, and real hope even when I know my days are short. I love to tell the story of how you have created the alter-world of salvation and peace for all who would dare to trust in you.
As God's people we never have to live one day in hopelessness.
