We Believe He's Coming Back

Tho' the way we journey may be often drear/
We shall see the King someday!
On that blessed morning, clouds will disappear/
We shall see the King someday!
We shall see the King someday/
We will shout and sing someday/
Gathered 'round His throne, when He shall call His own/
We shall see the King someday!
These trials are temporary; this pain isn't going to last forever. Jesus is coming back, and He will make all things new.

"He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."  Revelation 21:3-4

That's not just some verse. It's not even just something that will happen eventually. It's a promise from God to you. There will come a day when all we ever do is bask in the glory and presence of your Savior, forever. No longer will we know sadness. No longer will we feel pain. Your joy will be made complete, your purpose fulfilled. You will be content, and at last you will rest in the embrace of the One who made you.

"But I will hope continually, and praise You yet more and more." -Psalm 71:14

Your circumstance is but a blink of an eye in the grand scheme of eternity. I know you don't understand why this is happening to you. But that's okay, because God is in control. He is sovereign and good, and loves you more than anything. You can't control your situation any more than you can control the wind, but you can control your reaction. Choose to glorify God, no matter what. He is good, always. Cling to His promises. Through suffering, His presence proves so much sweeter. Experience the unquenchable joy He freely offers, and let your beautiful light shine. Heaven is coming soon, dear friend. Just hold on to hope.

"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light, momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond a comparison." 2 Corinthians 4:16-17

"And twenty minutes of heaven will make up for everything." -Joni Eareckson Tada
