In Focus // Romans 8:18
Are you, or someone you know, enduring a season of suffering? Suffering has the tendency to bring certain things into focus while blurring out others. As hard as it is to stomach, suffering is a major part of our life experience, both physically and spiritually. Why? Well, it helps us bring God into focus as the One who stands outside of our troubles because Jesus overcame our trouble-causing world (John 16:33). We essentially are going to focus on something, either our suffering or our Savior. What are you bringing into focus? Let it be Jesus and watch everything else fall strangely dim because of the radiant glory that emanates from Him eternally. Focusing on Jesus doesn’t mean your troubles will go away, but it can help put them in perspective.
