For a little while…

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1 Pet 1:3-7

    This makes me think of a friend from college who, after getting pregnant for the 2nd time (having lost the first baby), was told that the baby didn’t have a heartbeat and she was going to miscarry again. When she didn’t lose the baby she had another ultrasound, and they found the heartbeat! She now has a beautiful baby girl named Olivia Hope after “our living hope” from either this passage or a similar one, I’m not sure. All that to say, God is so good. You’ve been on my mind a lot lately and I wanted to say that I love you and I’m praying for you guys.
