But For A Moment

Good morning. It is Monday, March 28, 2022. Jeanette Stark here.


I read something by Wintley Phipps I wanted to share with you this morning.


“Many, many people around the world are going through unimaginable and heart-breaking situations right now -with no end to any of it in sight. Over the last month, we have witnessed and heard testimonies to the unbelievable consequences of war - and words themselves will never be the answer. However, those who belong to Christ Jesus should know that whatever is happening, one day they will see Jesus -and it will be worth it all!”


He went on to write about a song written by “Esther Kerr Rusthoi (1909-1962). An accomplished woman, she was an author, poet, composer, singer, and an evangelist herself, and was an associate pastor at the Pentecostal Angeles Temple, of Los Angeles. She wrote a number of books and hymn, but this fine 1941 song is her best known. Because she suffered from ill health (dying at the age of 53), there is a special poignancy to its message.”


I looked up the lyrics to this song:


It Will Be Worth It All


Sometimes the day seems long,

Our trials hard to bear.

We´re tempted to complain,

to murmur and despair.

But Christ will soon appear

to catch his bride away!

All tears forever over

in God’s eternal day!

CHORUS:

It will be worth it all

when we see Jesus!

Life’s trials will seem so small

when we see Christ.

One glimpse of his dear face,

all sorrow will erase.

So, bravely run the race

till we see Christ.

At times the sky seems dark,

with not a ray of light;

We’re tossed and driven on,

no human help in sight.

But there is One in heaven,

Who knows our deepest care;

Let Jesus solve your problems,

just go to him in prayer.

Life’s day will soon be o’re,

all storms forever past;

We’ll cross the great divide

to Glory, safe at last!

We’ll share the joys of heaven:

a harp, a home, a crown;

The tempter will be banished,

We’ll lay our burdens down.


Such wonderful and true words. Our trials now seem so big. We often wonder how we will ever get though them, but with Jesus in sights and by our side, we can endure what this old world throws at us. We can get through them. We will.


2 Corinthians 4:16-18 says, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” NKJV
