As though it had never been!
"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us!" Romans 8:18
Beloved, soon, O how soon! all that now loads the heart with care, and wrings it with sorrow — all that dims the eye with tears, and renders the day anxious and the night sleepless — will be as though it had never been!
Emerging from the entanglement, the dreariness, the solitude, the loneliness, and the temptations of the wilderness — you shall enter upon your everlasting rest, your unfading inheritance, where there is . . .
no evening shadows,
no midnight darkness!
But all is one perfect, cloudless, eternal day — for Jesus is the joy, the light, and the glory thereof!
"And so we will be with the Lord forever!" 1 Thessalonians 4:17
"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!" Revelation 21:4
