Pastor Ford will challenge us today to consider the need we have to understand how our problems and pain can be motivating factors in our lives. Even though we go through difficulties, they can motivate us to live in our “not yet,” right now. In other words, we can focus right now on the hope we have in our future with Jesus, instead of dwelling on our current situation.
