Holy God, at the close of another day, I lay down my fears, my burdens, my sins, my all, knowing that you keep me in your light and love. Your angels surround me and I will not be afraid. How fleeting is this life. Every breath is but a moment. May the breath we breathe give praise to you. Receive this day from me, Loving God, as an offering of gratitude. For your Son’s sake. Amen.
Revelation 21:1-5 (ESV)
The New Heaven and the New Earth
21 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. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
