It is easy for the victimized to set our eyes just above the threshold of pain and our minds set on the assault; but if we are to have the hope of seeing beyond the wrongdoing to the Redeemer, we must keep our gaze fixed on Christ. We must point people to the God who brings glorious restoration who promises that one day “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Rev. 21:4).
