He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:4 ESV
“I once had…”
Today, the past is the past. Depending on how far back you decide to go, you can remember it pretty well.
You can remember good times and most definitely bad ones. They mark us and shape who we are.
But one day, the former things will pass away. And the pain and hurt they caused will be gone.
And then we will be shaped and marked by what Jesus desires. We will be sons and daughters of the Most High. A new history will be written. A history written by God for all eternity.
And this, you can’t even imagine!
You can’t imagine a life without hurt, pain, uncertainty and fear. It’s not possible. But it will come.
It will come sooner rather than later.
So are you ready? Are you His? Is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
Father, although I can’t imagine how great that time will be, I long for it. Come Lord Jesus!
