Agony into Glory!

"They say of some temporal suffering, no future bliss can make up for it, not knowing that Heaven, once attained, will work backwards and turn even that agony into a glory."  C.S. Lewis

 ‎"When I was on my feet... pleasures provided only fleeting satisfaction. In a wheelchair... I delight in the rustle of the leaves or... enjoy the soothing strains of a symphony. These... pleasures are rich because, unlike the fun on my feet, these things yield patience, endurance, and a spirit of gratitude, all of whic...h fits me further for eternity." Joni Eareckson Tada

"No matter how deep our darkness -- -- He is deeper still." Corrie Ten-Boom

Hebrews 4:14-16
Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
