It would seem cliché to post this article on a Sunday – it’s Sabbath and I’m talking about heaven. Anyway, so yesterday being Saturday I was at home with my family. The past one week has been something else, health-wise for me but its times like this that I know more than ever before that there has to be a God (who sits in the hearts of men who believe in Him) and rules the affairs of them. All the while my kids won’t stop going, ‘mommy I want this, mommy I want that’. Phew! Kudos to moms.
So just in a brief moment of yesterday, I got some relief from all the pain and discomfort and in that moment I thought, “What a relief. This feels like heaven”.
And my thoughts can go from just watching a butterfly to the wildest thoughts sometimes. I then began to think, if in this brief moment of relief it felt like bliss, like heaven then what is heaven? Where is heaven? What would it feel like? What would it look like?
There was a sermon I heard in church once where the Preacher said that to those who are already on the other side of the deepest ground, earth to them compared to where they are would be like heaven. And I’m sure for some men or women who think they have it all – good life, good health, children, great job, the man or woman they love who adores them back – this earth could actually be their heaven. They have everything they want here anyway. But for saints who look forward a better place, who desire above all things to see God’s face and worship Him and see what God means when He described the real Heaven as what the mind has never conceived, this earth to them would just be a passing phase.
What brings you relief? What do you look forward to? Where does your heart lie? Who do you seek the most? Where’s your Heaven?
