Day 17 ~ Hold On, Pain Ends (HOPE)

This acronym for HOPE (Hold On, Pain Ends) has been cropping up on different social media sites lately, and I really like it. It makes me long for the day when God will set things right in the world once again, redeeming His creation with a new heaven and a new earth.

Can you just imagine the scene as you read Revelation 21:3-4?

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 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.

Someday, God himself will dry our tears and end our pain. Someday, we who love Christ will see and understand His plan, and we will no longer "see through a glass darkly." Until then, friends, live in HOPE. Hold on to Him with all you have... Hold On, Pain Ends.
