Go Long, Go Far

“So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure.”

~2 Corinthians 4:16-17 (NRSV).


“It’s not where we are now,

That matters so much,

It’s where we’re headed,

The end-point and such.”

Further than here,

The process contends,

Outcomes are wished,

And new life extends.

Soon enough we’re there,

And the past has wasted,

Groans are ceased,

And grace we’ve now tasted.
