Suffering is temporary ... so stop clinging to it!

The best is yet to come. Max Lucado; “No one cries when a plane lands safely and starts to embark. We never see anyone clinging to the chair cry because they have to get off the plane and arrive at their destination.“ As we read this text is causes me to wonder, why we cry and cling to the suffering of riding on the airplane when the destination is the goal.

I’ve heard talk on TV about people who are in their 70s as being the new 50! I also read a few weeks ago, that 100 is the new 60! I THINK THAT’S HIGHLY DEBATABLE! It depends on your health, obviously…and how you live your life getting to that age.

C. S. Lewis says: “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: SUFFERING is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” What's the idea? God gets our attention very well when we're in pain or are experience troubles and suffering in this life. When things are going well, we don't pay much attention to Him.

Our suffering is a reminder that we will be made new again when … We recognize that suffering is a part of this world … We cherish our hope of something better … We receive help for our weaknesses

 You know I love ya, Don
