When you think things will never change

It's so easy to surrender to hopelessness thinking nothing is ever going to change. Wondering how much more you can bear. Thinking the next wave is the one that's going to take you under. It hurts so much and you wonder how much more it will hurt before the tides turn....how much time will pass before things looks different.
Panic sets in and we see no hope for change.

Here's the beautiful thing about faith.
PERSPECTIVE.
He is working ALL things together for your good. He has an eternal perspective. A kingdom perspective. His vantage point is greater than ours because He IS....the beginning and the end and every moment in between. That's why we can rejoice in this moment here because we KNOW.....no matter what it looks like. No matter what we are feeling. This. Is. Temporary.
God is not bound by time.
You may FEEL you cannot endure a moment more but He knows.
In an instant things will change. In His perfect timing. When He has finished His work.
We become bitter and come to resent the process but this moment is nothing compared to what He's going to do.
Hold on to HOPE .
We don't have to see it to believe it.

For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!], Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18
