Two bible verses. One written around 740 BC and One written between 81-96 AD

Looking at these #Godspromises It has taken me until 2021 to realise the similarities between Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:4

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away

Revelation 21:4

Revelation 21:4 is a promise I have clung on to fervently since I became a Christian. The promise of God wiping every tear brings me so much comfort. I long for a time of no more death.

Does not everyone want this, especially in a pandemic?

You wipe every tear

Your next to us always
We just need to let you in
Sat next to us
Holding our hands
With the box of tissues ready

Or even starting the joke
When tears of joy
Come flooding out
Not wiping tears but joining the fun

In the sad times
You never leave our side
Wiping each tear
Individually away
Counting each falling one

Holding us tight
Sharing the pain
Tears not flowing in vain
Each one a prayer
You tenderly hold

Your heart breaks with ours
And sings when ours does
You treasure each teardrop
Bringing peace
Saying I'm here

Your keep your promise
And never let go
We wait for the time
Where the only thing condemned to death
Is a box of tissues, redundant
