It was never meant to be this way

It was never meant to be this way

Revelation 21:4 “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.” 

THESE WORDS. These past few years I find myself truly longing for Heaven in a way that I have never experienced before. Suffering seems to be a familiar friend in my life, and I believe in many of your lives too. Although I can very clearly still see that God is good, there are serious moments of heaviness that feel like they could very easily take over if I let them.  

A sweet friend gave me this encouragement recently ~ She said “don’t you believe that God hates the brokenness just as much and even MORE than you do? It was never meant to be this way.” 

BOOM. I felt like she had just knocked the breath right out of my body. As I recovered, I was overwhelmed with a renewed deep comfort and fellowship with God. I’m not in this alone! 

He hates cancer. He hates loss. He hates physical pain, emotional pain, hurt, sadness, disappointment, depression, anxiety, heartbreak, etc. The list could seriously go on forever.  

The Good News?

He promises us that one day we will be reunited with Him and everything will be NEW. As His beloved children, we know without a doubt that there are better days to come. Our futures are secure with Him. He will dwell with us, and we will be with our Savior forevermore! I can’t help but be overwhelmed with joyful anticipation. I am hoping, I am believing, I am longing for this day with everything in me!
