It’s a warm but breezy day. Each time the cool air brushes my skin I can’t help but to close my eyes and take it all in. The Lord’s presence and peace envelope me. Even if for only a few minutes–I feel free to just be.
Everywhere I turn anymore there is pain. People are cruel. Disease strikes unexpectedly. War. Deceit. Fear. Death. This election! I could go on for days. People think they are fighting for the right thing, but all there is is hate in their hearts. The ones without all the hate are walking on eggshells to try to maintain peace. Sometimes I just want to scream out for it all to stop.
It is indeed inescapable in this world. It gets to me, but in this peaceful fleeting moment, I feel nothing but His love. My mind is open and a verse enters. I remember the first time I heard it. It was on a Sunday morning, the pastor told us to open our bibles to Revelation. I was taken aback since it was probably the first time I remember being asked to open to this book of the bible. It was such a mysterious and scary book to me at that age.
I was young, but I will never forget how the words made me feel. It was the first time His word moved me to tears. It was the first time I felt truly connected to God in a personal way.
This crazy world, this life we live is temporary. How easily we forget this. We tread through moments as if we will never get out.
He will return and all the pain in this world will be forgotten. All the things in your life causing so much turmoil won’t matter when we see His face….when He wipes away our tears.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
