No More Sorrows! Craft Ideas for Heavenly Hope Isaiah 65

Print Friendly and PDF

One day, things will be different…this is the theme of many hopeful and joyful promises that God gives us about the Resurrection and our future in Heaven. It is profoundly peaceful to consider that our Lord will make all things new, and will reverse and replace former things. There will be no more pain and sorrow, and enemies will be friends. These images are the inspiration behind two craft-able puppets. A “Reversible Mask Puppet” focuses on the idea that sorrow will be transformed into joy. A “Reversible Rivals Puppet” features a wolf and a lamb, who according to the text will one day lie down together (but today will just be on the same craft). Have fun!

Bible Verses or Craft Captions to Consider… (Isaiah 65:17-25)

“For behold, I create new heavens
    and a new earth,
and the former things shall not be remembered
    or come into mind.
18 But be glad and rejoice forever
    in that which I create;
for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy,
    and her people to be a gladness. -Isaiah 65:17-18

The wolf and the lamb shall graze together;

    the lion shall eat straw like the ox,

    and dust shall be the serpent’s food.

They shall not hurt or destroy

    in all my holy mountain,”

says the Lord.

-Isaiah 65:25

The wolf…and the lamb shall lie together! Hope in a future of change!

No more sorrow…. God makes all things new!

Tears will be wiped away!
