Oh To Be Wise Meditations
In the midst of trial and temptation we need to shift our perspective. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! In the moment things seem so big, desires seem so strong. You can't hold on much more, you feel like just giving up and live to fight another day maybe. Give in to despair and sinful pleasure and find comfort in your distracting vices. But we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. Amazing how when the dust settles what truly matters is revealed. Its all for show and pompous arrogance the deceitful pleasures of this world. Our right perspective will keep us in the right mind so that we can truly see the eternal in the midst of the dust of this temporary world.
