As Though it Had Never Been!

Beloved, soon, O how soon! all that now loads the heart with care, and wrings it with sorrow all that dims the eye with tears, and renders the day anxious and the night sleepless will be as though it had never been!

Emerging from the entanglement, the dreariness, the solitude, the loneliness, and the temptations of the wilderness you shall enter upon your everlasting rest, your unfading inheritance, where there is no sorrow,   no sin,  no suffering,  no crying,  no evening shadows,  no midnight darkness!  But all is one perfect, cloudless, eternal day for Jesus is the joy, the light, and the glory thereof!

[Octavius Winslow]

Romans 8:18 ...  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

1 Thessalonians 4:17 ... Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Revelation 21:4 ... And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.❤
