There Will Be A Day

Jeremy Camp sings a song called "There Will Be a Day" and I love the part that says "I can't wait until that day where the very one I've lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that I've faced. To touch the scars that rescued me from a life of shame and misery, Oh, this is why, this is why I sing." I imagine sitting at the very feet of Jesus allowing Him to touch me, to physically wipe away my tears, and tell me that I will cry no more. I can't even describe the way that makes me feel. Imagine being able to reach out and touch Him, the very One whom you have lived for, the very One whom you have prayed to, the very One who allowed himself humiliation and defeat and physical pain on the cross so that we might have life. Imagine having Him touch you in return. Brushing his hand against your face and wiping away your tears with the very hand of God! There will be a day indeed!

"For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes" (Revelation 7:17)

Jesus, I long for the day when my tears are wiped away by your hand. This earth holds so much pain. I pray for your peace to overwhelm me tonight and to feel your hand upon my face wiping away my tears. Show me your glory Lord. I long to see your face. Amen
