Isaiah 25:8 “The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.”

We only have to read in Revelations to see the end of suffering and death as we know it. Revelation 7:17 tells us that Jesus Christ will be our Shepherd leading us to springs of living water & wiping away every tear from our eyes…and Revelation 21:4 reassures us that there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. But while we wait for that glorious day…death and dying is happening all around us, with no one immune to the pain of losing a loved one. Mourning & grief have visited us all, and that’s why it makes it so awkward to reach out to someone experiencing loss. It opens us up to hurt as we ourselves relive past grief. But that shouldn’t stop us. We can be the strength and hope for those in distress, extending consolation, comfort, and care…or as Isaiah 35:10 points to the day when gladness & joy will overtake sorrow & sighing like fleeing defeated foe…and the glorious light of new hope will dawn brightly on the horizon of our lives.
