Today I feel like I'm Max in a wolf suit. I want to go stomping around threatening to eat everyone up. That's a little ridiculous considering it's only 8 in the morning. But today is a day where I need to get my act together. I'm beyond distracted but there are big things happening and I don't want to miss it. A day late and a dollar short, here is your inspiration, but also mine.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
"Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. 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 crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."
And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
-Revelation 21: 1-5
All things new?
A place with no tears or death or mourning or pain?
That is what hope looks like.
