Today's Devotion: Jul. 6

From Pain to Praise

According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2,513,171 people died in America in 2011 from all causes. On average, 6,885 people died every day; 287 people every hour; 5 people every minute; one person every 12 seconds. In the time it takes you to read this devotional 5 to 10 people will die in America. At this moment, tears are being shed somewhere over the pain of loss. And that’s just in America, which represents only 8.5 percent of the world’s population. Is it any wonder Paul spoke of creation groaning for freedom (Romans 8:20-22)?

All of us will shed tears of pain and loss and grief at some time in life. But a day is coming when all those tears will be wiped away and will never be seen again. The sounds of pain will be replaced by the sounds of praise to the One who has redeemed us from a fallen world and ushers us into a new heaven and new earth.

If you are shedding tears of loss today, ask God to help you transition from pain to praise for the One who knows your every tear.

There is a land of pure delight, where saints immortal reign; infinite day excludes the night, and pleasures banish pain.
Isaac Watts
