The mystery of heaven...
"When they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but they are like angels in heaven."
I've been asked, many times, what I think heaven will be like. As I get older, I realize I am more and more comfortable with the mystery of heaven and have no need to figure it out or know what's going to happen there. As much as I usually like to have things planned and figured out ahead of time, heaven is one topic I can allow to just be a mystery. I am happy just believing that I will be with God. And that is plenty for me to get excited about! I also remember that Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God right here on earth and that intrigues me. I don't have to die to experience the Kingdom. God is here among us; I just need to keep my mind, heart and eyes open. Heaven is a mystery I can live with, very happily. But, I don't want to miss the Jesus present here and now, waiting for another opportunity to be with God later. So, what will heaven be like? Heaven will be like a beautiful, early June Wednesday, hanging out with Jesus. Blessings on your heaven today! Love, heidi
