2 Corinthians 4:17-18

"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:17-18

I like this. Sometimes it feels like what we are going through, or dealing with, is insurmountable.  We can't see past the obstacles in our path to the goal, and it begins to seem hopeless.  But all of our afflictions are temporary--fleeting.  This life is just a blink.  Eternity is what we are working for, and what makes it all worth it.  We can't always see the goal, but we trust in it.  The fact that there is so much beyond our capacity to see is actually something to give us hope.  We can't see everything, but God can... and if we allow him to guide us, then we'll be on the path to all of the things that we hope for.
