Earth is just temporary

The bills are piling up, and the paycheck isn't going to cover them. Your child is in the hospital with cancer. You have to move out of your apartment, and there's no place else to go.

It sure doesn't feel like you're blessed.

However difficult life is on Earth, we've all been more than blessed already. There's really nothing else we even need. God sent us his son to take on all our sins, to die in our places, so we can live forever and have eternal life if we just accept him.

Life is all how we look at it. If we knew that soon we would have plenty of money, we wouldn't worry about the bills. If we knew our child would be fine eventually, we wouldn't worry much about cancer. If we knew that we would eventually have a place to live, we wouldn't worry about losing an apartment.

Christians already know that life is going to be fine. It might not be fine here on Earth, but that is just temporary. If we look at life as only our life on Earth, we'll worry and be scared and uneasy all the time. If we remember this is only temporary, and everything will soon be perfect, as God meant for it to be, in heaven, we have much less to be concerned about.

We are all blessed. God has given us everything, it's all in how we look at it. We have much to be thankful for.
