“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
My hope lies not on the world but in the hands of God. My hope is for this longing to be fulfilled- to be with my Lord. Till He returns or calls me home, here I'll stand waiting. In God, I put my trust.
When the curtains were torn into half, the old covenant (that is-the Law) is gone; now lies a new covenant- a covenant of Hope and Mercy revealed in the resurrection of Christ Jesus.
Happy Easter everyone!
