No matter how often I read it, when I reach Revelation 21 and 22, I want to camp out in those passages and never leave.
I intentionally slow my reading pace to soak in the words. I long for what is spoken of to start right now ~
I want to live where there are no more tears.
I yearn to dwell where there is no more death
Or any pain-filled years.
I look forward to seeing streets of gold and gates of pearls.
I envision the New Jerusalem
With foundations made of precious jewels.
I can hardly wait to behold the Lamb lifted high:
To worship Him before the throne,
To read my name in the Book of Life.
I long for freedom from the curse of sin.
I stop at the end of the Book,
And dream of the day it will all begin.
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus” Rev. 22:20
