Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
Some refused death, some welcomed it, both were troubled, and both were overcomers. Both are headed for the resurrection, but their rewards are different.
One receives more in this lifetime, and the other has an exceeding weight of glory throughout eternity. Yet, both are blessed of the Father.
It may look bleak around you, but God has a perfect plan for you to overcome and be blessed, here and now, now and forever.
