One of my major highlights during my trip to Maui, Hawaii is the biking trip from a volcano zigzag road back to town.
When I was riding that bicycle, it brought back wonderful biking childhood memories. To feel the wind, the hear the sound of the trees, and the thrill of adventure.
Don’t we wish or hope that one day, we will always feel that greatness of joy. A time where it will be love, hope, and joy. A time with everlasting kindness. A time of overwhelming love.
Tonight, the verse, “He will wipe away every tear from your eyes,” overwhelmed me. I had to read where the verse was from. The verse was in Isaiah and Revelation, and both were talking about the end times. It was a promise that was reiterated twice in Revelation. I’m trying to imagine that moment where there will be no more tears that causes us great despair. Maybe there will be tears of joy, but I think this verse is saying about pain, tribulations, and hurt.
There will always be pain and suffering here on earth. No matter who you are, Christian or not, we will always encounter pain. But there is hope, that verse is a sweet promise that He will wipe every tear from our eyes. So, this pain that I’m feeling, this hurt that you are feeling, and this trial that we are facing, is not forever. There is a promise, and that is why my hope stands strong.
“Lord, I pray for my readers that are hurting right now. I pray that You give them warmth of your embrace to remind us that You are weeping with us. Remind us Lord that there will be a day that it will all be rejoicing and praising Your name. Lord, take care of us. Amen.”
