Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

A Hint of Heaven

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Snapshots of heaven,

the word does proclaim;

a peek to what waits,

for those in His Name.

Gathering around,

the Lamb of God’s throne;

a great multitude,

like none we have known.

A sea of faces,

from all the nations;

each wearing white robes,

proud proclamations.

Together as one,

declared with loud voice;

salvation is Yours,

and You are our choice.

Palm branches waving,

as truth is declared;

each tear wiped away,

all sin disappeared.

“After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” – (Revelation 7:9-10)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Spirit, so that we may truly hold the hope of heaven in our hearts, as we give our lives to You. Thank You Jesus, that You have gone before us to prepare a place for us in Your eternal presence. Forgive us for fearing our earthly end, and help us to embrace the holy hope of what is yet to come. Teach us to live our lives with an eternal perspective, recognizing that both pleasure and pain on earth are fleeting, but the joy of the Lord is ours forever! May we live our lives in Your love, keeping a proper perspective on all that comes to pass. Let our love show others too, the eternal hope that is held in You. Amen.

Anne update: Though it was a very long day in the ER for Anne, as she desperately needed fluids, we were able to pack her belongings under her direction, and move her to the home of a wonderful couple that will care for her while another loving pair is preparing a permanent place in their home for Anne to reside. It is a blessing to have her within a ten-minute drive, whereas before, she was a good forty minutes away. God is so faithful to provide what she needs! Please keep contending for her healing in Christ. May His blessings be bountiful in you. With His Love, Shannon
