And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”
Revelation 21:5 (NLT)
COVID-19 is still very real. Racism is rampant. We are grieving death — unexpected and expected — while still trying to manage life in a pandemic. WE ARE WEARY.
When life doesn’t let up, when the wave of loss overcomes us again and again, silver linings don’t cut it. We need hope that is tangible, real, and unwavering when circumstances keep changing. Hope for today comes from the reality of our future. We look forward to the day when God will make all things right and new. But even now, God is doing that work. Look for it. Join Him in it. Rest as He does it.
So, this is our promise for today: In this fragmented world, God is making all things new.Leave a Comment

Right now I am homesick for my eternal home. I realize that I am a stranger in a foreign land, passing through. But, I’m not supposed to just survive and hang in there, it is my privilege to spread hope to a hopeless world. I’ve written about this larger picture in a recent blog post, “This World is Not My Home.” If you need some hope and direction, I welcome you. https://walkingwellwithgod.blogspot.com/2020/06/this-world-is-not-my-home.html
Let’s keep leaning into God, sisters, and sharing Christ’s love in a desperate and despairing world. This is our calling…praying for you!
Hallelujah, our hope is in Him! Yes, “He’s able, He’s able, He’s able to fix it for you, Jesus knows just what to do!” There are songs that come to heart and mind during times like these that lift up our spirits in the Name of Jesus. We are praying that He will make our country a “Democratic” one lead by an administration that has a heartbeat for a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. Thank you for reminding us that God is truly in control of our situations in this world. I would hope that you would use your platform to open people’s eyes about how important their vote is in November as well, since God has given you the ability to write, He is able to use you to share. God help us all to social distance, keep flattening the curve of Covid-19, and wear a mask!

It good to know no matter what happens if saved we have further and hope. We have God who loves us no matter what. I know it seems people wonder why God is all this happening in our world today. Why do we have so many people dying. Why why? It make me go into prayer more. Be thankful that I am saved. Thankful for all that God has already given me. Like a roof over my head food on my tablet clothes on my back clean running water a bed to sleep in. When so many people in our world today have not got those things. People before all this Covid 19 came about where those that had good paying jobs working for the latest laptops mobile phones cars etc. It was greed and people didn’t care about other people as long as their we world was ok. Now if lost their jobs got a family too support. Life could be a lot different. People could be thankful for any job that pays the bills keep food on the table clothes on kids backs. People not be greedy. God could be speaking. Man could have been those people too greedy. When they they had real good paying job. When there have been people in our world that have been living on our streets. People in some family have been struggling to make end meet. We as the saved have to turn to God in prayer and pray for the family’s who even before the Covid 19 that have been struggling the homeless person. As that is what God would want us to do. People who had money that maybe now have lost their jobs because of Covid 19 and have to look for a job and take one if get one with less money. If have kids teach them. Daddy or Mummy will not be buying you the expense toys or laptops or mobile phones etc now. Teach the kids to be thankful for what they already have and make do. The Parents not to be as greedy to have to have the latest TV or Car. Be thankful they can if get a job with less money they can pay their bills. God could be speaking not to be as greedy. Think of who hold the future. Who whole the world. In fact who made the world. There are people in third world countries who will never in their life time have a mobile or laptop. They are just thankful on to God to be alive have a bed to sleep on clothes to wear and shoes plus clean running water and food. If they get theses things. Some don’t. So we have an offal lot to thank our Heavenly Father for. Love today’s reading. Love you all incourage. Xxx
