Glory around the corner

Yesterday I read the following tweet from Matt Chandler who has just gone through brain surgery to remove a tumor and is now waiting for the results of a pathology report:

"Path report is 2ndary at best...good report doesn't mean much, bad report doesn't mean anything...my days are numbered and not by this report."

This morning I read this:

Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job.13 Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.- 1 Peter 4 v 12 - 13

Very often in the middle of difficulty we are tempted to ask where is God, why have you left me?

Peter reminds us that God is always on the case and as we are changed to be more like him, glory is around the corner in this life or the next.
