The new order of things

July 12, 2009

God’s been on my mind a whole lot these days.

And not just mine. Even my trainer brought Him up last week, asking how I was with “the faith thing.” I acknowledged my struggles with faith, and he allowed that he struggled, too. And that whether or not “the big bang” theory held was too complicated for him, so he just believed in a Higher Power, and left it at that.

Sounds about right.

It’s Sunday, so I’m going to talk God and quote Scripture. One particular Scripture, that I ran across last night reading the Daily Light my dear friend and business partner gave me for Christmas.

What I read was from Revelation 21:4: He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more … mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Time passes, and wounds heal. But I can clearly remember the grief, pain and many, many tears I shed when FLH left me, almost 30 years ago.

Now, I do believe that whole mess was necessary. For reasons that FLH and I have discussed fully over these past nine months.

But the result of this miracle God has wrought in our lives is reflected in that verse from Revelation.

All these years later, God wiped those tears from my eyes and replaced the old order of things with this wonderful new life we’re building together.

And that’s something worth thanking Him and rejoicing over. On this day and every day that follows.
