what is unseen is eternal

(J.R. Miller, “Help for the Day”)

What is unseen is eternal!
Life may seem a failure here, crushed like a lily… — broken, trampled, torn! But it may yet become a glorious success. Many of the truest and best of God’s children, know only defeat in this world. They are ever beaten back and thrust down. The burdens are too heavy for them. They are overmastered by sorrows and pain. The world’s enmity treads them in the dust. … while others march by to great earthly success — they live obscurely oppressed, and burdened with life’s challenges.

“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!”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18

We should sweetly acquiesce in God’s will, in faith that whatever He permits in our life is right and best for us.

The goal of Christian life is not to avoid troubles, disappointments, sorrows and injuries–but in all these experiences, to keep free from sin and stain.

Jesus does not require anything more than a child-like trust in Him as Savior, Master and Friend–and the devotion of the life to Him.
