Read this verse this morning and again after lunch. It doesn’t say we won’t have “troubles,” it just encourages us to see beyond them into what lasts forever. He’s given us the ability to do just that! : ) Let’s do it!
“That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever” (2Cor.4).
