Sony’s Thoughts: Ready for Heaven
The other day, I was listening to Glen Payne and the Cathedrals sing “Hard Trials Will Soon Be Over,” and I remembered my brother saying, “If anyone was ready for Heaven, it was Glen Payne.” It also occurred to me that Glen had no idea at the time he recorded that how soon his trials really would be over.
My grandma commented a while back that the songs they used to sing about Heaven mean more now that she’s closer to being there. I’m not that old but I can relate. The more loved ones I have who have gone before me, the more homesick I get but I am grateful that God has a purpose for my life and I hope to be faithful to the end so that God can say, like He said to Glen, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” What a day that will be!
