Reflections on Loss

Loss, pain, weakness, you and I can both think of a hundred other words to describe the daily negative events around us. Amidst the amazing wonder and beauty and greatness God has designed, the sin of Adam (as well as our own sin) still affects us all daily in real ways. Not everything is beautiful anymore. Not everything is lovely or admirable. Not everything goes your way.

My conclusion?
Our souls love and desire flawless perfection... and it is only found in one place. God in Jesus Christ. He has become our flawless perfection and will be that for us forever. What a hope we have! No matter how down and out you are, He is always there for you and me.

yeah, we all long for the Garden, the new heavens and new earth. But ultimately, not the place, but the Person - Jesus.

Good thoughts here.
