Resignation

I spent time with a couple of friends last night. One is going through a difficult time, and has been for 3 years or so. The monotony of her disappointment is wearing on her, and she wondered aloud, “Should I just resign myself to this? Should I just get used to this? Maybe this is how life is.”

I surprised myself at how strongly I answered, “No! Don’t!” Certainly life is difficult. Certainly! But a life lived without hope… “No, don’t let yourself get used to this. This is not how it will always be.”

How painful to wait for heaven.
