There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
A promise from Revelation 21 I regularly call to mind when this world brings such sadness. But it was the beginning of verse 4 that grabbed me this week.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
There will be a day when You, Jesus, touch my face with Your hands. Your very own hands. You will wipe away my tears, yes, but You have shown me something more.
In Your touch I will know You fully and be fully known. The moment you touch me I will know exactly who I am.
Until that day, Jesus, please whisper Your truths to me. Tell me what You see when You look upon Your daughter. Cause me to view myself the way You view me - even if for now a dim reflection.
