Promise of Heaven

Today is a heavy day.

Hard situations. Stories of sin. Suffering. The weight of work. Death.

A family from our church lost their husband and father after he saved a young girl from Lake Erie.

I did not know them personally, but reading about his character tells me what a good man he was. I can’t imagine. Heavy, heavy heart.

On days like today, the only thing I can find hope in is heaven. A real place.

Redemption. Home.

‘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.”
Revelation 21:4

Thank you Jesus that this day will come. Everything will be made new. Pain will disappear. We will be with the One who loves us unconditionally. Who died so we can be there.

It is the only thing my soul can find comfort in today.

And leaves me sorrowfully rejoicing knowing this day will come.

Where is your hope found?
