Dec 31 - Revelation 21:1,4

Merry Christmas - day 10

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth
[and in it, God] will wipe every tear from [our] eyes.
Death will be no more;
mourning and crying and pain
will be no more.
Revelation 21:1,4

What a wonderful verse for New Year's Eve. It helps finish off the Bible. It reminds us how to finish off the year.

Many of us view the march of time with wistfulness, regret, and pain. "My best days are behind me," too many cry.


Our best days are in front of us! Heaven awaits with an incredible promise: Not only will we come to a time when there is no more mourning or crying or pain, but our youth shall be renewed like an eagle's (Ps 103:5)!

But we don't have to wait for heaven to have our best days. The single greatest decision we can ever make is our own attitude. We can choose how we will react to circumstances. And knowing that our good God is in charge should give us confidence to face boldly whatever lies ahead.

Tomorrow starts a new year. Can you choose to believe that your best days are ahead of you?!

In Christ's Love,
a guy who wrote that last sentence very carefully:
"Can you choose to believe ..."
(Happy New Year)
