Troubles are momentary

“For our light and momentary  troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
2 Corinthians 4:17

Someone once prayed,

“LORD, help us to strip off like cobwebs the troubles that we have allowed to cling to us like chains.” 

Oh, how often we feel chained to our problems.  Wouldn’t it be glorious if we could consider all our trials to be as light and momentary as cobwebs? 

We can! Whatever troubles are weighing us down -- doubt or anxiety, insecurity or fears --  are not chains  They are featherweight when compared to the glory yet to come.  With a sweep of a prayer and the praise of a child’s heart, God can strip away any cobweb.

From Joni, Diamonds in the Dust, June 9
