No More

“And he who was seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’” – Revelation 21:5a

I love this verse. The more I think about the promises contained in these simple words, the more excited and awestruck I am. My longing for heaven pulls my heart to see the brokenness of this world with new eyes. My soul aches with those who are struggling with broken relationships, broken spirits, broken bodies, and broken hope. This promise is a beacon of light in the darkness that often threatens to overwhelm us. No matter what today holds, there is going to be a time when our burdens will be no more and everything will be new.

Want to dream with me? Here are ten things that will be no more when we get to heaven.

  1. There will be no more death, cemeteries, or grieving families.
  2. There will be no more broken hearts.
  3. There will be no more tears.
  4. There will be no more worry.
  5. There will be no more fear.
  6. There will be no more pain.
  7. There will be no more broken bodies.
  8. There will be no more anxiety, depression, or unhappiness.
  9. There will be no more guilt or shame.
  10. There will be no more loneliness.

My Jesus Resolution today is to walk through today with new confidence. What is happening today is not the end of my story. The final chapter of my story is filled with no mores and brand news. The burdens, pains, and struggles of today can serve as reminders that a better tomorrow is on its way. I may have to struggle through some difficult things today, but with every step my Savior reminds me that someday these things will be no more.
