we have hope

Romans 8

v18

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

No matter how miserably we suffer in this present time, with Jesus, we have hope. As we pursue Him and righteousness, we can look forward to fullness of joy and everlasting pleasures. This is a real thing, and it's awesome to remember.

From: A Shelter in the Time of Storm

By Vernon Charlesworth, about 1880 and Ira Sankey, about 1885
The Lord’s our Rock, in Him we hide,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
Secure whatever ill betide,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A weary land, a weary land;
Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A Shelter in the time of storm.
