God in Christ has declared all things new and we believe Him, but all we know of this is an inner whisper. At the moment, the evidence is severely lacking. Hope and change continue to slip back into perversion and violence. The formation of faith, hope, and love do not bring the personal glory we had hoped, but cut us open to know the sufferings of our Christ. Is He worth it? Yes! So in unfulfilled longing, rejoice. Every promise will be fulfilled and every tear wiped away.
