“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” – Revelation 21:4 (NIV)
When someone arrives in heaven, we are told that there will be no dying or sadness or tears or pain. This side of heaven there are times when it seems like that is all we experience in this life … nothing but pain and sadness; hardship and trials. If you expected life to be easy once you received Christ, then you must have found a passage of scripture that I am unfamiliar with.
We should take heart in the fact that the tears we shed during this life will someday be wiped away by our Lord when we go to be with him. Unfortunately, no one escapes pain and disappointment in this life. We all suffer loss & cry over things that sadden us. It’s unavoidable, but we can learn from these experiences. The lesson learned is not to become hard and unfeeling in the face of such circumstances, but rather to allow God’s love to mold us into an example of compassion and grace to others experiencing the same type of circumstances.
Allow God to heal your heart and your spirit so that you might be a blessing to those around you. Of course, there is always a time of mourning for a loss, but doing it with the grace God provides can be a blessing not only to you & everyone you meet. Until next time, walk with the King & be a blessing!
