Life has its ebbs and flows. Sometimes we experience great joy and other times we are faced with sadness. During all seasons of our lives, we must remember that our time on this earth is only temporary. We will be strengthened, we will be supported, and we will overcome whatever we face!
As we reflect on Good Friday, we can remember that suffering and death are temporary. Jesus came to die for all of our sin. He gave Himself up to suffer and die in our place. For Jesus, this death wasn't the end. He is risen! Because Jesus rose from the dead and conquered death, we can believe and be comforted in God's promises that we will one day be brought into His Heavenly Kingdom and will rejoice and celebrate our victory over the temporary through God's awesome grace, mercy, and power! We will be restored beyond anything this temporary world can offer!
This is only temporary, for God will restore and rebuild you in His glory!
Thank You for loving me and for You restorative promises. Please strengthen me now to deal with the temporary until I can see Your full glory. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
