“Behold, I am making all things new” Revelation 21: 5
I spent most of my morning at the Sole Hope outreach house eyes closed, arms tightly wrapped around the small body of this sweet 4 year old Ali. Then around sweet 10 year old Daniel.
As they were crying out because of the pain the jiggers have caused in their feet, I was crying out to Jesus, asking him to COME.
Come, Lord Jesus.
draw us near. hold us close. dry every tear.
The image that played over and over in my mind, was Jesus, coming and wrapping his arms around every single one of us that is hurting + broken and whispering in our ears, “it’s going to be ok, I am here”
What a beautiful promise in scripture….the hope of the new heaven and new earth…
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” Revelation 21: 4
Jesus whispered these words in my spirit, “I am making all things new”.
I long for heaven to come on earth. I long for Jesus to return, and make ALL things new. I will cling to the promise that He WILL come back for us. Until then, I press on and believe that when I’m feeling broken, hurt, or in pain, He will wrap me in his arms and speak softly into my ear of His great love for me.
“God himself will be with them as their God” Revelation 21:3
“Jesus called to them and said, what do you want me to do for you? They said to him, Lord let our eyes be opened”. Matthew 20:32-33
Yes, Lord. Open our blind eyes that we might truly see.
My eyes were opened and my heart was broken yet again. Opened to see these beautiful yet broken children of God, restored and redeemed only because of the blood of their savior.
“It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment” Revelation 21:6
My heart was broken over the pain, over the injustice, over the severity of the filth and fleas that has burrowed in these beautiful children’s feet. Through that brokenness, God showed me His great love for them. His great love for me. His great love for you.
I long for Jesus to come back, and for the new heaven and new earth. Until this promise of His second coming is fulfilled, I will wrap my arms around my daddy God and trust that until then, everything will be ok.
“Surely, I am coming soon. Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20
Will you pray for my friends that will be spending the week at the Sole Hope Outreach House? This part of Sole Hope’s ministry is so needed for the kids who have the worst of the worst cases of jiggers. These 7 kids from today came from deep in the village and will be staying this week to receive intense healing. God IS making all things new, and we all get to be a part of that.
