How does this affect how you live today?

Pray

Dear God, thank you for an amazing vision of the new creation! Thank you that I will be in your presence, without death, sadness or pain. Please help me to trust you and persevere through these difficulties now, and to trust you that it will be finished.

Help me to know that being with you, in your presence, is far more worthwhile than anything that the world could offer us, and thank you that nothing can separate me from you while I wait.
