It's Not Supposed to Be This Way - Session 6 - Kingdom Minded, Eternally Focused
*Kingdom-minded* means there's a purpose to your pain here and now that has implications for God's kingdom. You may never know the answer to "Why?" in this lifetime, but two of the may possible purposes for your pain are to make you mature and complete (James 1:2-4), and to equip you to comfort others (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). *Eternally focused* means we are headed to a restored Eden. There are unseen and eternal things at work in our lives that far outweigh the temporary and seen.
