No More Sadness

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away – Revelation 21:4

She was in the shower when it happened.  The pain was deep and the tears flowed like the water beating down on her back.  Leaning against the wall, she succumbed to the grief.  She was crying because she missed her son who died a year ago when he was 11.  It was painful not having him around.  She missed seeing him, talking to him and hugging him.

Her crying spell lasted for a while, with no sign of abating when she heard the Lord say to her, “The pain will always be there but I will be here to help you to get through it.  One day I will dry the tears.  Yes, I will wipe away the tears.  There will be no more weeping, sorrow or pain.  These things will pass away and there will be everlasting joy.”

When she heard those comforting words, the pain went away and encouraged, she washed away the tears and finished taking her shower.  As usual the Lord had reminded her that she wasn’t alone.  He was her Source of strength and one day, she would see Him and her little boy face to face.  That thought filled her with hope.  One day, there will be no more sadness only gladness.

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness – Psalm 30:5

    • Thanks, Drew. This is my story. What I wrote about here happened this morning. God has been my Source of strength through the dark and painful moments of grief and loss. He has given me such comfort and hope. I’m happy that you were able to read my post. I’m faring well, thanks to God and taking one day at a time. I hope you are doing well. I’m happy that you’re back 🙂 You were missed.
