From time to time I will have difficult days, days like the past couple days, where caring for others with mental illness and dealing with my own neurological disorder, is overwhelming. On days like that what helps the most is to hear updates from the missions. Why? Because my difficult days will never compare to being infected by malaria 22 times in a 12 year period. Please don’t misunderstand me, especially if you are a caretaker as well, I’m not attempting to undermine hardship. I’m simply saying, for me anyways, a proper perspective of the extreme blessings I enjoy each and everyday, humble me unlike anything else. In many ways it encourages me to press on, it encourages me to prayer, and above all else, it encourages me to look at eternity rather than today.
What do I mean by that? Before you decide I’m too heavenly minded to be an earthly good, let me briefly explain. In the glories of eternity both mental illness and malaria will disappear as we stare into the perfection of our thrice holy Lord. Why do these men and women bare their hardships? To bring the Gospel to an under reached people, to see souls saved, to see eternity in the eyes of new believers. Oh, my friends, if we could only see what future awaits us! But, dear ones, if we could only see what future awaits the lost. How we would live differently! How we would mourn, not over our uncomfortable, or painful circumstance, but over the lost marching willingly into the eternity of hell. If only I could weep for the lost like I’ve wept over my own troubles! This is what I mean when I say these updates cause me to look at eternity, and not only at today’s hardships. I hope this clip will bless you, encourage you, and humble you, as it has me today. May the Lord, our gracious God, be with you. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Thank you sister for sharing this video. In our own personal difficulties in life is a good thing to remember our brothers and sisters world wide that have chosen to sacrifice their life for the sake of the gospel or are suffering persecution for their faith and always keep them in prayer.
The Lord bless you dear one.
