If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also. – John 14:3 (HCSB)
When life gets tough, it’s beneficial if you can keep things in perspective. The fact is that because of Jesus, we are able to spend eternity in heaven with Him. Knowing this allows us to have peace in Him no matter what our circumstances are or what things look like around us. The truth is difficult situations and circumstances will happen to you in life. The good news is that we have someone who cares about us and who has gone ahead of us. So as we live each day, we can realize that we’re not just living for today and today’s difficulties and circumstances. Rather, we’re living for eternity. One day we will see Jesus face to face. If we accept Jesus our eternity is secure! Today, instead of thinking about the troubles you’re facing, think about the fact that Jesus said that He is going to come back for you and take you to be with Him in heaven some day. When you have this perspective, it makes all your problems seem small.
