2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (New International Version)
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
For the very first time in my life, I had an inkling, a slight glimmer, of what that above promise meant. I had a glimpse of eternal...everything. I suddenly realized that everything I had learned about God... everything I read about in the Bible and sung about... everything, all of it--it was all true. It was going to be true. This eternity stuff was real. This God stuff was more than in my head or in our heads. This is it.
Wow. And what?
