which one will take it away…

July 1, 2009

pic_prescriptions[1]as I stand in front of a cupboard full of prescriptions, a well stocked cupboard I might add, with a debilitating headache, I wonder which one will take it away…. which one would take it all away.  all the hurt, all the pain, all the wonder, all the fear, all the confusion, all the guilt…

I’d like to think there is a magic pill that could do that.  a magic place to go where it doesn’t matter any more … where all of life’s troubles melt away.  but I know better.  I know there is no such place, no such pill, no such drink, no such new shoes.  all these things may help for a brief time, but it will come back.  there is no permanent fix.

knowing all of this, makes me very grateful that I do have something steady to rely on.  someone that is the same today, as yesterday, as tomorrow.  someone that eases the hurts of this world and holds out the promise of no more hurts when I finally cross over jordan.  oh, how I love Him… the One who takes it all away.

He will wipe away 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.

Revelation 21:4

  1. I love that verse! I heard a sermon once, years ago when I thought life was easy, where the speaker said, “We will all enter heaven weeping. But God will wipe every tear from our eyes.”

    The longer I live, the more I realize the truth of that. This world is full of hurt and tribulation of every kind. I am glad that the best is yet to come.
