Romans 8:20 Against it's will everything on earth was subjected to God's curse.
Romans 8:21 All creation anticipates the day when it will join God's children in glorious freedom from death and decay.
Can I get a Halleujah! Honestly, this verse made my heart do little flips. What a promise! I'm still in awe.
Like us, creation experiences death. Flowers lose their brillance, trees lose their leaves, and animals are either subjected to the food chain or get old and pass away. But they are anticipating the day when that will be no more. The day when the symphony of creation will sound like beautiful music once again.
Romans 8:22 For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
Now..you're probably expecting something like "with all of these earthquakes and natural diasters it's coming soon" I don't know. No one does. I wait eagerly for that day, but when it is I have no clue. To be honest there is some stuff I want to do on earth before BUT that is my own immaturity shining through. I pray that God shows me that His glory is infinitely better than getting married or raising children and a family. Those are my earthly desires, but His glory will be so much better. I sincerely hope he'll change my heart in that. This world is not my home, but I'm treating it as if it were. I need to be ready to go at a moment's notice, but right now I have TONS of proverbial packing to do.
Time to meditate a little more while I close up shop (literally) These past couple of days have been challenging but God shines through, I wish I went to him more often when my life seems to fall apart. I'm getting better though. My life will NEVER fall apart while He is in it. "All of my life, in every season, You are still God, I have a reason to sing. I have a reason to worship"
