The Lord has really been working on me with this post for a few days. Rob and I have been listening to the Casting Crowns CD, and this song “Wedding Day” has surely become one of our favorites.
This time of year is a joyous one for sure. But there is part of us that is a little sad. Satan tries to take our joy and just pile on the hurts we have experienced over this last year. But as we have listened to this song, we have found PURE JOY in knowing that our future is one of AWESOMENESS!!!
This song talks about the wedding day of when we will meet JESUS face to face. It says that we know we are undeserving, but that is not what He sees. We will be what He adores, that’s what He made us for. The most compelling part for me is “The hands that bear the only scars in Heaven touch her face, and the last tear she’ll ever cry, are finally wiped away. As the clouds roll back and He takes her hand, and walks her through the gates…Forever we will reign!”
What a beautiful picture that is. This is our future for those who have accepted His gift of salvation. Though this earth is full of many hurts and disappointments, our future is full of hope and promise. Our verse for Faith is Jeremiah 29:11- “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you, not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.” Y’all! This is my future! Our hurts seem so overwhelming at times, but when you know that this is what you get in the end, it is ALL WORTH IT! Don’t wait another day to have a future with Jesus.
