a few more scenes

taken from p. 102 of Max Lucado's Grace for the Moment:

" In (this) world you will have
tribulation" Jesus promises, "but be
of good cheer, i have overcome the world."
JOHN 16:33

God has kept no secrets. He has told us that, while on this yellow brick road (of life), we will experience trouble. Disease will afflict bodies. Divorce will break hearts. Death will make widows and devastation will destroy countries. We should not expect any less. But just because the devil shows up and cackles, we needn't panic.
Our master speaks of an accomplished deed... "It is finished" (JOhn 19:30). The battle is over. Be alert. But don't be alarmed... The manuscript has been published. The book has been bound. Satan is loosed for a season, but the season is oh-so-brief... Just a few more scenes, just a few more turns in the road, and his end will come.

Beautiful and very enlightening reflection Baby. :) Yup, life here on earth is temporary. Lifespan here on earth is just sooo insignificant as compared to our afterlife in paradise. :)
