Revelation 7:16-17 Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
O Lamb of God, what a messy world we live in! There is anger and hatred, violence and murder, selfishness and divorce, greed and jealousy, sickness and sadness. What is the answer to all this? What is the answer to this mess that makes its way into my own life? You! You cleaned up the mess of my sin by shedding your blood on the cross for me. You are my Shepherd who guides and leads me through this messy world. I know that some day I will leave this messy world and enter your beautiful and perfect home. Until that day, help me cope and keep me ready and prepared for my grand entrance into heaven. In your name, I pray. Amen.
