Yes, while we are in this tent we groan, because we are weighed down. We want to be dressed not undressed, so that what is dying can be swallowed up by life. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:4 (CEB)
God will swallow up all that drags us down and replace the weights with new lives.
Thank you, God, for the promise of new life. I confess that I get weighed down by the troubles I face and forget what lies ahead. Refresh my memory regarding the victory that Christ has secured and the unencumbered life toward which we look. I'm going to live with hope. Amen.
*25:7 in some Bible versions
