Heaven is such an amazing place, but difficult to describe 😊
But there is one thing I can promised you, Heaven is as Real
as the earth on which we stand. It’s not
some cloud, or some misty place. It’s
the Garden of Eden. There is life. There is laughter, lots of it. And there is pure joy, pure peace and pure
love. There are deep friendships that
last forever. There are rivers and
hills. There are flowers and fruit. There are dogs! There are things to do, adventures that will
never tire you but only brings you happiness. You will never feel sick, or tired
or lonely. It is the Grand Adventure
with all the fun that implies, but none of the fear, worry or hardship.
The closest I can come to describing it in this world’s
terms is that it is like the joy of all of your firsts combined, with all of
the joy but none of the fear. The first
time you rolled down a grassy hill, the first time you spun around in the
falling snow, the first time you jumped in the pool. The first time you rode a bike downhill with
the wind in your face. The first time
someone you love smiled. The first time
you were hugged. All of the joy, none of
How any one or any place can give perfect joy, perfect love
and perfect peace at the same time is beyond me, but that is what Heaven is
like. That’s what Jesus offers, forever!
I wish I had better words to describe Heaven for you. City of Lights as been used. And although it seems trite, it is true. Filled with Rainbows, the “streets of gold”
are created by God’s Light. A golden sun
light so beautiful we simply can’t imagine how beautiful it really is. Rainbows, God’s Promises, fill the land. Each more beautiful than the last. Rivers with sun shining on them, so crystal
clear that you can drink straight from the river. Trees and meadows, mountains, flowers and
fruit everywhere, just waiting for you.
Picnics and walks. Running like the
wind and never growing weary. It’s
simply amazing, just like God’s Grace.
Imagine a world where every wish is taken care of before you
even wish for it. A world where there is
no pain, no hurt, no worry and no fatigue.
No medicine. No rushing. No struggle to just get up. A body that works perfectly.
Only joy. And
peace. Only beauty and love. A beauty
so amazing that you could just spin around and around, and spin around some more,
drinking it in forever. And if you did
only that, it would be enough! But there
is so much more! Grand adventures, spending
time with the people you love. Meeting
new friends. Being fearless, not courageous
in the face of fear as we are here on earth, but truly not having any
fear. Can you imagine? This is Heaven.
And there is work in Heaven. If you can call it that 😊. For it is work that never tires you, never
rushes you, and always contributes to something you really care about and
enjoy. Work that you want to do. Work that you love.
And there are friendships in Heaven. Real Ones.
The kind that fills you up until you are overflowing. Friendships that never cause you pain or
heartache. Friendships that never end
and give you only joy and strength.
Many people think that Heaven is just some mystical place,
but is as real as the earth you are standing on right now.
You will walk, you will run and you will see that people you
love and those who love you!
You will never be cold or tired again. You will fly like the wind, with the sun
warming you all the way through.
You will spend your days with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, in
the Presence of God.
So get ready for absolute joy! Because that is what Heaven is 😊
