Russian wedding customs are filled with beauty and significance. One such custom takes place during the reception as the toastmaster proposes a toast in honor of the couple. Everyone takes a sip of raised glasses and then begin shouting “Gor’ko! Gor’ko!,” meaning “Bitter! Bitter!” When the guests shout that word, the newlyweds must rise and kiss each other in order to make the drink sweet again.
Isaiah prophesies that the bitter drink of desolation, ruin, and the curse upon the earth (ch. 24) will give way to the sweet hope of a new heaven and new earth (ch. 25). God will prepare a feast of rich foods and the finest and sweetest of drinks. It will be a banquet of continual blessing, fruitfulness, and provision for all people (25:6). There’s more. Under the sovereign reign of the righteous King, death is swallowed up, bitter tears are wiped away, and the shroud of disgrace is removed (vv. 7–8). And His people will rejoice because the One they trusted in and waited for will bring salvation and turn the bitter cup of life sweet again (v. 9).
One day, we’ll be together with Jesus at the wedding supper of the Lamb. When He welcomes His bride home (the Church), the promise of Isaiah 25 will be fulfilled. The life once bitter will be made sweet again.

Here's another Encouraging Word for you to so deep within your heart today from the book of Isaiah chapter 25 verses 1 to 9. Lord, you are my God, I will exalt you and praise your name for imperfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things. Things planned long ago.
You have made the city a heap of rubble. The fortified town of ruin.
The former stronghold city no more.
It will never be rebuilt. Therefore strong peoples will honor you. Cities of ruthless nations will review you.
You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress. A shelter from the storm and as shade from the heat for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm driving against a wall and like the heat of the desert you psalmist the uproar of foreigners as heat is reduced by the shadow of a cloud. So the song of the ruthless is stilled on this mountain, the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples of banquet of aged wine the best of meets in the finest of wines on this mountain, he will destroy the shroud that it folds all peoples the sheet that covers all nations.
He will swallow up death forever. The sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces, he will remove his people's disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken in that day they will say, surely this is our God. We trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord we trusted in him. Let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation. Now let's pray dear heavenly father.
I'm reminded of Galatians chapter 6 verse nine, the says and let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do not give up and help us cling to that Lord. In times such as these of restlessness, instability and uncertainty as followers of Christ we know where we can find true rest, peace and joy. And though it's difficult to believe you'll make what is bitter sweet. Again, help us to put our hope in you and you alone, and may we resist the temptation to just simply put our lives in cruise control through all these difficulties and not profit from and is in Jesus precious name we pray.
