And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. - Rev. 21:4
We all know what pain is. As children we have stubbed our toes, got splinters, fell off our bikes or fell and scraped our knees and elbows. Our mom would clean the wounds, put on medicine, then a bandage and off we would go. As we got older we found there were other types of pain, the pain of losing a loved one - your spouse, a child or parent, a friend or a relative. Then there is another pain, a pain to your heart and I don’t mean a heart attack. A pain so deep from someone you trust with your spiritual life. You feel the pain of betrayal. Your pain is so deep that you give up on God and life. You can’t trust any more and feel you can’t go on. You want to go to sleep and never wake up, so you take a handful of pills and go to sleep so you never have to cry or feel pain again. But God has plans for you, God sends someone to save your life. Maybe you gave up on life but God hasn’t given up on you. God led me here. God took away my pain, my anger, and so much more. So never give up on God. Sometimes God works in mysterious ways, I certainly found that out. “Look up, never down.” God bless you all.
