The hope we have in Jesus is not a promise to avoid hardship, but rather that God Himself meets us in our hardship and empowers us to overcome our suffering.
What will heaven be like? We will enjoy our loving, smiling Savior forever! We will be blown away by all of the ways our lives intersected with His divine intervention in our lives.
It is easy to get bogged down with concerns and struggles in our daily lives, but God calls us to turn our gaze to things above.
