God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God
Saturday of the First Week of Advent

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
Each one of us is a seed of the “glory that will be revealed” (Rom 8:18) During this Advent, I want to encourage all of us (myself included) to think about what God is doing in our lives and through our lives? How do we tell of God’s Glory to our neighbors.
