Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Remember that the One we serve sees us, and hears our prayers. In these difficult times, resist the urge to hide your head in the sand, to forget the troubles of others, or to focus solely on your own troubles. You are called to something greater - to fix your eyes on the eternal. Let that be the window that you look through to be a part of the solution.
