Spiritual Sundays

Hello everyone~ The weekend is here and it is time for Spiritual Sundays again. I hope you have all had a wonderful week!
I have been cutting back considerably on my blogging lately because I have been very busy and part of the reason I have been so busy is because twice a week for the last number of weeks, I have been going to physio therapy for my back. My therapist told me that I will get better but it's going to take time. How I'm feeling now is not going to last. Now is not forever.
'Suffering was not part of God's original act of creation, but it serves as a temporary reminder of what happens in a world where God's order has been broken.
Although we cannot avoid pain and disappointment {John 16:33}, we know that it's only temporary. Some sorrow will be relieved in this life, but all of it will be relieved when God finally and firmly establishes His new heaven and new earth. {Rev.21:1}. Now is not forever.' {Excerpt from Our Daily Bread by Julie Ackerman Link}
"There will be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4
These beautiful and fragrant lilacs are only here for season.
"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever." - Isaiah 40:8


There are many in one form of pain or another. Please check out those on my sidebar and lift them up in prayer.
