Have you heard about the new James Webb Space Telescope? It is intended to be the bigger, better and brighter successor of the Hubbell Space Telescope. It boasts of a much greater infrared capability also enabling us, as humans, to look deeper and deeper into space. But to function optimally in space, it has to be left with small imperfections here on this earth.
Likewise, each of us has imperfections here on earth. We may not like or want the imperfections, but we know that their purpose is to strengthen us in some way.
Philippians 3:13 says,
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
So, press on, and remember God is right there with you through the good and the bad. He gives comfort, wisdom, redemption, grace and much more!
Think about it, and have a blessed day!
