Count it ALL joy!

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as your are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.” 1 Peter 4:12-13

Lately my mind is undergoing transformation and to be honest, sometimes it hurts. I think of hurt and pain differently today. Isn’t it the very component which showed Christ’s love towards us? He sacrificed His very life, subjecting Himself to physical torture and emotional anguish. I imagined He fixed His eyes on the many saints marching along the highway of holiness, He would pave in gold, on the way to Our Heavenly Father. He knew blinded eyes would see. Hearts weighed down by sin would be freed. Shame and guilt would have to flee. What a redemption we have in Him, what an inheritance, what an eternal hope. Let us count it all joy for we are His. How I long for my eternal home with Him.
