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.
