When I was younger, the world was so pleasant. Everything worked right. I was happy, and everyone around me was happy.
But as I grow older, I can really see how sick this world is. This world is so broken. Why does the majority of my closest friends have depression? Why do people have to deal with unwanted desires and temptations? Why are our bodies so frail and broken? Why are humans so self-centered and only concerned with their own benefit? Why can’t I do anything to fix this? Why is it that all I can do is sit on the sidelines and see everyone I love hurt so much?
Sometimes it is hard to wake up looking forward to our day when you know the world you are waking up to is so broken.
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
I am very much looking forward to the new creation.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
