“Sing to me about the end of the world”

(Flyleaf, Arise)

 

The end of the world is a scary thought for most people. Zombies. Bombs. Mushroom clouds. People running for their lives. Screaming in terror. It’s perpetuated by the media.They feed us images of dire circumstances. Everything is gray except the flames that seem to burn everywhere. People are reduced to monsters.

To me, the end of the world looks a lot more pleasant. Peaceful even. When this world comes to an end, I will be reunited with my Savior. Whom my heart longs daily for. He will meet me with open arms and say, “Welcome home, my child. I’ve been waiting for you.” Tears of joy will roll down my cheeks as my heart is finally fulfilled.

That is a day I am excited about. Not scared of.

There will be trials beforehand. Maybe bombs. Maybe mushroom clouds. Maybe people running for their lives. But there is a promise when it’s over. A promise to be fully redeemed and sanctified. A promise to come face to face with our Maker.

 

“And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.” Revelation 22:5
