Sony’s Thoughts: Thinking about Heaven
“Lately I’ve been longing for Home and my heart is already there.” I can so relate to this lately. I don’t have a death wish but I find that, the older I get, the more I desire to really see Jesus. I don’t doubt that He’s here now – I can feel His presence – but I know that even my imagination cannot begin to describe what our meeting will truly be like.
So many songs I listen to are about Heaven yet “eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for them who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9) I can’t imagine that much splendor and glory but it’s there just the same.
I look around at this beautiful earth sometimes and remind myself that I have a Home far greater than this. However, no matter how beautiful – no matter how big or small my mansion is – Jesus will be what makes it Heaven for me. How I long to see His face and to rest in His embrace. To know I’ve entered by His grace, that’s what makes it Heaven.
