2 Chronicles 23:1-24:27; Ezekiel 41:1-26; John 18:1-27

The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. Lamentations 3:25
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer. Roman 12:12

My wife’s father was dying of heart failure and gasping for his breath, when his wife said, “Bert, I don’t know why the Lord’s allowing you to suffer like this”. Struggling, he faintly replied, “He’s not finished with me yet; He’s still taking off the rough edges and preparing me for glory”. Tribulation, yes, but patient and rejoicing in hope! —Jim Comte

O child of God, there is for thee,
A hope that shines amid the gloom,
A gladsome hope that you shall see Your Lord, for He is coming soon. —Thomas Muir
