Revelation 21:1-4 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth. The first heaven and the first earth had disappeared, and there was no sea anymore. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It was prepared like a bride dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Now God’s presence is with people, and he will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them and will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain, because all the old ways are gone.“ (NCV)
In the mean time, there will still be death and sadness and crying and pain and I'll continue to blog about the things we can be thankful for.
Dear Lord, Thank you
- For the here and now
- For the future and what we can look forward to
