The Ultimate Healing

05 Oct

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.
~Revelation 21:4

This world is so harsh and cruel and is a dry, dry land. there are tears at every corner and anger and pain and death. I mean, goodness, just turn on the local news and it’s so obvious…drive around in your car for a few minutes. Pain is everywhere! We experience it on an almost daily basis sometimes; whether it’s the pain that our back causes because it’s just not right today, the pain of a breakup we didn’t expect or didn’t want to happen, or the pain of losing a loved one.

But in Revelation, Jesus promises that there will be no more pain, no more tears, no more death! It’s the ULTIMATE HEALING!! I have to say that I am utterly excited for that day! Though pain is a part of life, it’s extremely…well, painful! I look forward to the day where there will be no more pain, no more tears, and no more death!

I’ll leave you with these lyrics from an old Wayne Watson song (yes, I dated myself here 🙂 !)

I’m trying hard not to think you unkind
But Heavenly Father
If you know my heart
Surely you can read my mind
Good people underneath the sea of grief
Some get up and walk away
Some will find ultimate relief

Chorus
Home Free, eventually
At the ultimate healing we will be Home Free
Home Free, oh I’ve got a feeling
At the ultimate healing
We will be Home Free

Out in the corridors we pray for life
A mother for her baby, A husband for his wife
Sometimes the good die young
It’s sad but true
And while we pray for one more heartbeat
The real comfort is with you

You know pain has little mercy
And suffering’s no respecter of age, of race or position
I know every prayer gets answered
But the hardest one to pray is slow to come
Oh Lord, not mine, but Thy will be done

Let it be…

Chorus
Home Free, eventually
At the ultimate healing we will be Home Free
Home Free, oh I’ve got a feeling
At the ultimate healing
We will be Home Free

Home Free, eventually
At the ultimate healing gonna be Home Free
Home Free, oh its more than a feeling
At the ultimate healing
Gonna be Home Free

    April, what a wonderful thing to meditate on! There will be a day when none of that pain will be able to touch us any longer and we just bask in His glory for eternity. Awesome!

    Thank you.

    It is the ultimate healing, and the one we yearn for. Nice post.

    That ultimate healing is promised is sufficient for the hour.

    If I couldn’t count on the day I go Home to my Lord, I wouldn’t have anything to care about and keep me moving. Thanks.
