Longing for Heaven – Eyes to See – Day 16

I just read The News on Momastery.

It seems every time I turn around someone’s been cheated on, or someone has cancer, or their child has cancer, or they’ve had to let their babies go to heaven.  Sometimes I don’t know how much more my heart can handle, it just folds up with grief and I long for a place where we don’t hurt anymore.  And just when I think I’ve heard the worst, and nothing else could possibly shock me, I hear of something else, and it starts all over again and I wonder when the unspeakable grief is going to hit my own family.

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.”  He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” – Revelation 21:4-5a

We sure do a lot of exercising in this life.

This song perfectly expresses my heart right now:

    Yes, this life is painful. I too have experienced so much death and suffering around me. I listened to this beautiful song you’ve shared. A reminder this is not our home! You might like this one too… http://matthewsmith.us/music and click on #9, Goodnight.
    God bless us everyone!
