Heaven is so underrated~

When you think of heaven what do you think of? What is it that you see? What is it that makes your hands raise, and your butterflies begin to flutter? It is Jesus, it is all Jesus. He is what we can get excited about. If heaven were praising His name all day, looking into His eyes every minute, and if we were all singing it would be magnificant, and worth the wait, but heaven is so much more. To sit at Jesus' feet, to hear stories of all the Old Testament people, to hear of changing water into wine, walking on water, and to ask what was it like to make the world? To know our lives here today are leading us to heaven, only makes me yearn for heaven that much more. To understand every gift we have today will only be magnified in heaven is humbling. We aren't just going to float around, we aren't just going to be sitting on a cloud. But we are going to have the time of our lives at the party everyone is invited to. No one is left out of this party, its not only for the popular, the elite, the rich, the pretty ones, the C.E.O's of companies, there is no one that is more important, no one is going to stand above you and make you feel like you are nothing. You aren't going to feel the pain of your childhood, you aren't going to carry those scars that hurt so much today. You aren't going to be held back because you don't fit the mold. You aren't going to worry about how your going to feed your family, if your momma will be covered by her insurance, if your daddy will be able to walk, if your brother will be able to see. There aren't any wheelchairs in heaven, there aren't any hearing aids, there is no chemotherapy, pain is all gone. There are only the things to dream about. What if we really do have jobs that we will enjoy, what if we really will feast at a table with Moses, and Elisha. If you have never been in a mansion, just wait to see what God has for you there. We will serve, we will sing praises, we will do so much and time will not restrain us. Nothing will come in the way of our time with Jesus. A place where we will get to see the grandmother we never got to see, to sit with our parents and ask so what was it like for you to see His face? The possibilities are endless. We can't put a limit on what God has in store for His children. To come to heaven, all are invited, but you have must answer your R.S.V.P immediately. The date to respond is today, this isn't one you want to put off to side, or wait and see if you want to go, its not one to see if there is something better. There is nothing better than heaven. I don't have all the answers, but we can read in Revelation all about the trumpet sound, the rapture, all the things we so desire to understand are there showing us the way. God didn't tell us everything, He left us with all we need to know for today, and the rest will come later. Think of it as the biggest surprise party you have ever attened, this time you are the one to be surprised. Our eyes will be open to see many things, and we will begin to understand things we didn't before. Revelation 21:3-5 "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for hte old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, I am making everything new." God placed the yearning of heaven inside us, when the Holy Spirit came to live in us. "One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Phil 3:13-14 If you are parents of older children you always anticipate their coming home. You are so overjoyed to see them, and all you want to do is see their face, and touch them. That is a joy all of its own. It will be the same for our coming home to heaven. Jesus wants to see His children, He wants to touch them, and spend forever with them. He is the Father we have in heaven watching over us here, preparing us for our homegoing. "Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe." Hebrews 12:28 This world as beautiful as it is, the people of our world who can be so wonderful, the gifts we have today, life can still shake us today, we can be shaken to the core of our being, but heaven will undo all those things, and nothing will be able to shake us. Remember all those firsts that you did, the firsts of your children? This will be a first for us, a first that we experience heaven and we will experience it together as we worship our Savior, the One who chose to die for us, the One who gave His life, the One who is coming again to bring us home, with the greatest homecoming ever presented. With all of heaven before us, what is there not to be excited about? What is there not to share with others? Today, may you know Christ as your Savior. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotton Son that whoever should believe in Him shall have everlasting life." Heaven is just not about us, its all about Jesus. Get excited, read His word and search for all He wants you to know. Today is the best day in your life to get started loving Him. Heaven will be all He promises us it will be, and more than we can even imagine~
