Revelation 21:1-8 -- Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away." And he who sat upon the throne said, "Behold I make all things new." Also he said, "Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true." And he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death."

Song of the week: The Jig Is Up by Edison Glass
Listen to it and see lyrics on Yahoo! Which has it on Rhapsody....
Correct lyrics here.

I've asked with the right intent and bright eyes
But what I can't seem to figure out is how and why
And I can't seem to handle it

Sometimes I feel like I've been praying diligently with the right motives and with hope yet I still don't understand what God is up to, or understand how God will come through on this thing that just seems so huge. But you just have to stay faithful and not doubt. God will answer in His time...not ours

I'll wait for Your words, I'll trust You'll say

...because God is so much bigger than I can even fathom:

Your eyes see further than mine
I can see as far as the sun and the moon in the sky

I can see the sun and the moon, God can see the whole universe. God can see the future.

I was reading 1 Samuel chapter 1 in verse 10 it says, "[Hannah], greatly distressed, prayed to the LORD and wept bitterly." She was being ridiculed by her husband's other wife for being not being able to have children and this burdened her heart so much that she prayed with passion to the Lord & made Him a vow. Later, God remembered her when she prayed and answered.

I think I need to be more diligent in bringing the burdens of my heart to God. Nothing is too big for Him!!
