Episode 525


For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

2 Corinthians 4:17

In the grand scheme of things, the pain we experience is nothing but a flicker of time. Seasons come and go, and life will one day look differently as we spend it with Jesus in eternity.

Pretty morbid, but in actuality, it’s such a blessing.

Knowing that in this life, we will have pain, seasons of suffering, and unimaginable hurt – but we will also have joy, love, and pure moments of laughter.

There is goodness, and it’s just a taste of what eternal glory will be like.

So look at your pain and remind yourself that this is nothing but a flicker of time.


Father God, we thank you that pain is momentary but eternity with you is everlasting. We thank you that we get to experience a taste of glory through your goodness here on earth. We love you, and we thank you! It is in your holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!


We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
