“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will e revealed in us.”  Romans 8:18 

Dearest Jesus, Thank you for giving me the freedom not to try to make sense out of my suffering but rather to carry my mind away with thoughts about heaven.  Sometimes my problems seem so big that they fill every corner of my heart.  Use my thoughts about heaven to crowd out my useless mulling over unresolved issues.  Help me smile and be happy and content over what is going to be rather than sad over what is.  And thank you for giving me the hope of going to heaven through grace without any merit of my own.  Amen. 

Heaven gives us something to look forward to for our whole lives.
