Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – if I allow my eyes to see only today I will live only shaped by this day, but if I raise my gaze I will see the promise of God in my future and it will fuel hope and endurance for these days.
James 5:7-8 TPT
 Meanwhile, brothers and sisters, we must be patient and filled with expectation as we wait for the appearing of the Lord. Think about the farmer who has to patiently wait for the earth’s harvest as it ripens because of the early and latter rains.  So you also keep your hopes high and be patient, for the presence of the Lord is drawing closer.
Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today…..
We view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. We see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison, because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal.
