but I do know who holds the future.” This is one of the last words of wisdom my grandmother gave to me. It remains as true to my heart today as it was when my grandmother’s last few days were so uncertain. Now, she is beholding the face of Jesus, dancing before His throne, and praising Him with more health and vigor than I can imagine on my best day.
He does hold the future and He gives us glimpses of our ultimate future. A Day is coming the clouds will roll back. When the trump shall resound. When the Lord shall descend. A terrible and glorious Day is coming. Ultimately, every tear shall be dried up. All will be made right. There will be no more orphans.
My ultimate hope is in this Day and even more so in the Person of Jesus Christ who is the LORD of Hosts, beautiful in glory, worthy of worship, the One who did not abandon US as orphans.
The rest of our family is leaving tomorrow for several days in the NC mountains with 20 cousins, eight aunts and uncles, and two grandparents. I’m going to put the posting on hold during this time. Please check back next week as we pray and process annd seek the One who holds the future.
