Things I will not miss about this world

When Job said life in this world comes with trouble (Job 14:1) he meant every word of it.

While there may be a few things I miss about this world, they are heavily outweighed by the things that I will not miss…not for a second of eternity.

From dealing with the spiritual adversary of righteousness, to the physical burdens of living in a clay vessel and on into the draining mental strife of knowing that this world could be, should be and is supposed to be better than what it is. I will not miss this world because of them, and because of these:

  • denominationalism
  • war
  • racism
  • sickness
  • sorrow.

Those are some of the reasons why I’m looking forward to the day when I can say goodbye to the messes that we have made here, and hello to the place that is waiting over there.

looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
(2 Peter 3:12-13 NKJV)
