Coffee Break: Isaiah 25: 6-9

I LOVE the early-morning time: the cool air, the calm before the chaos, the quiet reflection…

My coffee is sweetened with sugar and warm milk {my hubby makes a great concoction}.

My Bible is open to Isaiah Chapter 25, verses 6-9.

Change.

I’m mostly okay with it, unless it means my girls are growing up way to fast (they are) or if it means I am pushing 30 (I am).

Change means the passage of time. Aging. New life. Death.

Sometimes, the passage of time reminds me of what is no longer here. Of who is no longer here.

All four of my grandparents have been dead for several years. None of them met my husband or my children. If I think on this long enough, I get sad. I even cry (yes, I do cry at times).

What I love about this passage, is that I am reminded of how the Father will wipe away all our tears

He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken.

It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

One day, there will be no more tears, no more sorrow, no more pain.

Until then, I will wait on Him, and rejoice in His Salvation.

    Recently my 4 year old has been interested in heaven, specifically the fact that there are no tears, sickness, sadness, etc. It’s fun to see his enthusiasm about this and remember how wonderful it is.
