Destruction is not God’s intention: re-creation is!
I for one am searching for a word of hope, and I think scripture provides just that. I think these verses reaffirm God’s deep and wide love for the world, God’s desire to refresh us and renew us, God’s vision for community where tears are dried and death will be no more. Someday…. Somewhere…
Let these words of the Revelation do this for you as well… let them reawaken something deep inside you. Let yourself remember your own longing, and feel it, deeply.
Let God’s word draw you toward something wonderful, and beautiful. A vision of what can be.
