“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. For the former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4
He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me.
Psalm 18:19 NIV
Sometimes God asks us to set aside the old in order to usher in the new. He calls us to leave behind that which we have held dear, and counted safe, in order to draw closer to Him. But, our sacrifice is wrapped in beautiful grace – we give up in order to gain.
