There are times at work when it feels like 30 minutes is an eternity. Sometimes a minute feels like an epic epoch has occurred. 

“After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” – 1 Peter 5:10

Our “little while” of suffering can sure feel like an eternity. I wonder if that is because the cares of this world draw our focus off of Him. Could it be that we’ve become focused on ourselves? A “why me” attitude? Or could it be because of someone else’s sins?

Whatever the case may be, in the eyes of eternity in heaven, a little while is a very short time.
