The world seems to be falling apart and I hear you say often, “the Best is yet to be”. Really? I watch the news and I just want to turn it off. A few of my friends have left Facebook because of how vile it has become recently. Things are falling about in my own private world as well. How can you say the Best is yet to be? ( and why are you stealing Brownings’ line from His poem Rabbi Ben Ezra? He is referring to human love….are you?)
Dear Sweet Sister:
Having a soft heart is a good sign. The hearts of the children of God should break when we watch the news or hear of another’s heartache. Soft-hearted children know how to run to their heavenly father and ask for help. Often God’s answer is that we are to be the hands and feet and voice for the hurting in this world. Let us ask God everyday how we can share His Love in this place of exile we call our temporary home.
For those who have accepted the gift of being released from the prison of sin, we have the hope of everlasting Life in a perfect place called heaven where there is no heartache. When I held my 40 day infant old daughter Megan as he took her final breath on this earth, I received an overwhelming peace. Later in my grieving, I had an epiphany that my prayers were answered and she was “Healed in Heaven”. She has been spared living in this broken world and how can my arms compare to the perfect arms of Jesus?
Why can I say the Best is yet to be? Because God sent His son Jesus Christ so that we could spend eternity in The. Best. Place. If you give your broken, soft heart to your creator, He can make it new again.
Our King of Kings makes us a promise in His final Book of Revelation, “And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I making everything New!”. Revelation 21:5
So my sweet sister. Love saves the best for Last. If you are saved then truly you can say….. the Best is Yet to Be.
I hope you enjoy the poem I wrote about this….I am praying that God will inspire someone to put this to music.
