The Things Which Are Not Seen Are Eternal...

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, Chapter 4, verses 17-18.

Sometimes I get caught up in feeling sorry for myself.  When I think of this, my troubles are very insignificant compared to the suffering Jesus went through to save us from our sins.  After I think of all He went through on my behalf, I feel guilty for the petty things I worry about.

Here is a related passage:
*For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.  Isaiah, Chapter 41, verse 13.
