He Will Come

In the politics; the rage; the turmoil around and within us.

In the fear; the conflict; the disasters in the news and in our neighborhoods.

In the discouragement; the hopelessness; the loneliness that presses in on us in the night.

Hush, now; peace. Like a child, run to the arms that welcome you. Rest in the everlasting arms beneath you.

My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.

Psalm 131:1-2

Like Silas and Peter, singing wounded in the night. Like Daniel in Babylon, praying toward Jerusalem; we abide between thorny branches, among tangled vines. We are strangers and aliens in this world.

Show us Hagar’s well, God. Feed us Elijah’s bread. Hide us in the stronghold of En Gedi. Come to us in the watches of the night.

When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.

Psalm 94:18-19

Our tears are kept, precious. Our sighs, heard; heeded. Our darkness defeated in the light of His presence.

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.

Psalm 116:1-2

All will be made right. All made whole. All made new, in the end. Hush now; peace. He will come.

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘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 21:1-4
