For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. 

Who hopes for what they already have? 

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. 

Romans 8:20-25


  1. Sending Happy First Day of Autumn blessings to you!

  2. I too agree with what all holy books and messengers have said that life is examination for us and we have to purify our souls by being righteous while facing the hardships.
    God test our faith throughout our life constantly. Today science agrees that world has been created on "conflict " this fight ends with last breath. Test is hard when we have pampered attitude which blur reality

  3. Hope and waiting patiently go hand in hand
