"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV)
They don't seem light, those troubles. They sure don't seem momentary. But compared to the amazing things God has done and continues and will continue to do, they are. Let us fix our eyes on our Father!
