We groan daily because of human things – relationships, dread, broken communication, loneliness, lacking purpose, because of where we are there are troubles to troubles in our physical bodies and in our souls; it’s a natural reaction because of our humanity but it’s also a reminder of the future we are longing for in God! We long for the time and place where full control is manifest in the fullness of Christ – where all has been made right.
Christians are the very present signal to the world that help is on the way – our lives should show the evidence of a loving and serving Savior as we love and serve others. God is asking us to reach out to our friends, neighbors, communities, strangers even and do the work He has set before us to love and serve others in their groaning – to patiently endure and sacrifice ourselves for others.

There are moments that impact our lives and, for some, move people on to their eternal journey – for better or for worse. We can see practical examples of God’s nature, in the physical surrounding around us, to help us understand difficult concepts and truths which show us who He is, designed to reveal himself to us and teach us about Him. We can secure our trust and faith in Him so that we can spend eternity with Him – in light rather than in darkness.
