In the past few months I have watched my mom suffer a LOT! I can not imagine the pain that she is going through. I have started reading the bible more in the past couple weeks and stumbled upon this verse. It pretty much sums up my mom’s life right now!
“For I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us” -Romans 8:18
Glory: Splendor, magnificence, or honor. This is what Webster says of glory. My mom is a super hero; she has suffered every push and shove from this cancer, and she is still caring for our family! Praising God when she’s suffering; this is my mom’s glory!
Sometimes I feel like I’m the one suffering with all of this. I have been disappointed with things like the Disney trip! But then I think, “I am selfish to think I am the one suffering. My mom is suffering, and the glory is being revealed!” This verse has inspired me to live the rest of my life facing its trials head on. When I have struggles in my life I want the glory only attainable through God. When you surrender to his plan for your life and live it to the fullest, this is when the glory will be revealed.
This is Micalyn, and God has been faithful to me.
