Dreams of a Place the Eye has not Seen …

Lauren.Machu Pichu 6-29-12

I dream of a place …

Where gentle winds stir love and devotion and praise …
A place where the winds of strife and hate are no more
      A place where tornados and hurricanes are merely history

Where cool waters flow and quench all thirst …
      A place where seismic waves and tsunamis never happen
      A place where all people of the earth have Living Water

Where the Garden of Eden bursts forth in glorious splendor …
      A place where all is perfection
      A place where earthquakes are but a fading memory

Where doors are never locked …
      A place secure with nothing to fear
      A place that abounds in contentment and peace

Where illness and pain and death are no more …
      A place where the cancers of this world never tread
      A place where I can run and work and play and never tire

Where the honorable dwell in truth and purity …
      A place where people live in joy and laughter
      A place where grief and sorrow and tears don’t exist

Where the Tree of life sustains me …
      A place where the Tree yields its fruit every month
      A place where the leaves are for healing of the nations

Where sin has been abolished and joy lives …
      A place where everyone accepts the free gift of God
      A place where my name is written in the Book of Life

Where my eternal home is with Christ Jesus …
      A place prepared for me by the Creator of the world
      A place made especially for the sons and daughters of God

Where there’s a new day never before seen …
      A place where the old is made new
      A place where those without hope will become whole

Where heaven opens and a Rider on a white horse appears …
      A place whose rider is called Faithful and True
      A place where the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords reigns

Where all nations bow to King Jesus …
      A place where men no longer make war
      A place where the Lamb is honored and praised

Where I see God and the Lamb on the Throne …
      A place where I can talk with Them face to face
      A place where His name will be written on my forehead

Where the Bridegroom comes for me …
      A place of love and joy and happiness
      A place the eye has not seen and the mind cannot conceive

Where the Wedding Supper of the Lamb comes to pass …
      A place where those invited are blessed
      A place of celebration for the Bridegroom and His bride

Where the Lord is The Everlasting Light …
      A place where His Light will eclipse the sunrise and sunset
      A place where dark never reigns and God’s glory lights my way

Where God will dwell with His people and make everything new …
      A place called the Holy City, the New Jerusalem
      A place where God Himself will wipe away every tear

Where God and the Lamb rule for ever and ever and ever …
      The place where He will be my God and I will be His child
      The place of the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End
      The place of the Hallelujah!

I dream of a place …
      And I pray …
           Come quickly, Lord Jesus, Come

Inspired by comparison of Isaiah 60 and Revelation 21.
