1 Timothy 4:8 -...having promise of the life that now is,
and of that which is to come.

Vadnais Heights, MN

Hope is God's gracious provision that shows us how to rejoice in invisible glory.  Hope lies next to us in the worst of times. When we face the visible, the feelings, and trying times when it seems like things cannot get any worse we are to look up as we remember His Word within, concerning our possessed and pending future joys.  "The life that is to come" is filled with that which is exceeding abundantly above all that we could ask or think, things that eye hath not seen, ear hath not heard, nor hath entered into the heart of man.  Yet, they are things that God hath given to us for our glory to hear as we listen to the Word of God, see with the eyes of faith, and set our hearts affection on things above.
