This life is nothing compared to eternity, but it feels long while you're in it. Sometimes it feels like it will never end because you have so much you want to do. Other times it feels so long because there are things you want to no longer endure. Sometimes you want it to end because you have a glimpse of how excellent the next life will be in the presence of the Lord. Maybe you've lost someone and you can't wait to see them again. Sometimes the Accuser of the brethren tells us "this life is unbearable, so how could the next one be good enough to last forever?" Don't listen. James 3:17 "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason. . " Open to reason. Just ask our heavenly Father for the grace and the understanding that it will be beyond comparison. We never know what we don't know until we know it.
