Beyond the tears…

Beyond the pain…

Beyond the darkness…

There is a place being prepared for me.

Where there is no mourning or sorrow, no sin or hiding, no hopelessness or shame.

The old order of things is no more.

Oh, what a day that will be!

Your gracious provision will overwhelm me like a flood, and I will want for nothing but You.

You will be the desire of my heart forever.

I will no longer be concerned about the cares of this world; all will be made new.

Though I feel entrenched in this season of great sorrow, there is hope.

Because of the promises You have made, I press on.

Because of Your great love, this is not the end of the story.

There is a joy I have never known beyond this.

As life unravels and falls apart all around me, You hold me still.

You love me and will come back and get me, so that I can be with You forever.

Thank You for keeping me strong and steadfast until I see You face-to-face.

You are my hope now and beyond this life.
