There is No Magic


Revelation 21:4
New Living Translation (NLT)

4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”

Genie in a Bottle

He walked the lonely alley way
In search of treasure lost,
A chance to make a dime or two
From things that had been tossed,

And from those meager findings
Eke out a living bare,
Perhaps to eat a burger,
Perhaps a drink to share,

He had chosen; some years ago
To live a hobo’s life,
The pain was just too much to bear
When he had lost of his wife,

So he had hit the lonely road
To try and end his pain,
But years had passed with much regret
And still his pain remained,

If he could but find that fabled bottle
With a genie locked inside,
He’d make a wish that she’d return
And they’d live on side by side,

But there are no magic bottles
Filled with wishes for us to find,
So for now this one will have to do
To paralyze his mind

You alone are our hope. When things go wrong, when there is pain, when things simply do not make sense…You are with us. We thank You for caring, for loving us back to life.
