just a glimpse

when was the last time you took a glimpse of Heaven?  not the clouds or the stars, but where we’ll spend eternity?  If you’ve excepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, and except His sacrifice on the cross, you will spend eternity with Him in Heaven.  We’ll see the saints of old, have meals with Abraham and Paul, chat with the peoples’ lives we’ve touched.  I mean people that are touched by the ripples of our prayers and our giving.  We’ll see the scars on His hands, feet and side.  We’ll be enveloped in the love that died for us.  We’ll see God face-to-face.

That last part, seeing God.  Think about it and try to imagine it… crazy huh?  The one who made the universe, the galaxies, the stars, the planets, the sky, the clouds, the animals.  Who made it ALL, as small as a flower petal is as big as a black hole.  We will be with Him.  Forever!  

In that light, my troubles seems small.  My pain, my sickness, my worries.  My joys, my victories, everything seems small.  What will this dirty living room or that bill that needs to be paid, really measure up to against worshiping directly at His feet?  I’m not saying to not clean, or to not pay that bill, but the amount of time and effort we put into those worries… they won’t mean much on the other side.

Ask Him to open the eyes of your heart, to open your imagination, to open you hope, to the image of Heaven. Of eternity.  Of His love.  The rest will fade, and you won’t be so worried about today or even tomorrow.

I want to be as open as possible, safely anyway. If I've been set free in something, maybe I can encourage someone else to seek God and they can be free too!
