This will be impossible for me to describe in words. I have been contemplating all week how to capture the essence of heaven.
Last week I shared Heaven Bound; if you haven’t read that post yet, it can be found here. http://wearehiskids.com/2018/03/18/heaven-bound/)
The foundational Scriptures in that post are paramount to having a Christian faith.
Imagine living a life with …..no more death or mourning or crying or pain,…..(Revelation 21:4)
Let’s not miss the beginning of that Scripture, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes……” (Revelation 21:4)
Have you ever experienced love from someone so profound that it’s impossible to describe in words?
Have you had experiences where love has overcome you and sharing it with another is lost in the translation?
A Mom’s kisses after a fall
Mom’s chicken noodle soup when we’re sick; no matter how old we are
A sibling giving you the last bite
The first call, text from someone that makes your stomach flutter; the first kiss
Your love asking you to marry
Your baby being born
First time meeting your child born by another and welcoming them into your forever family
Baby’s first giggles
Christmas pajamas from Grandma and Grandpa
Celebrating Christmas and Easter with extended family
A confidant praying over you
Grief of losing a loved one
An ah-ha moment reading the Word
An answer to prayer; a realization that an unanswered prayer was what’s best
Provision from nothing
An unexplained healing
A lost child returning; the fervent prayers preceding
If we were to wrap up all of the above and all the other moments in our lifetime where we experienced unexplainable love and multiply it by an immeasurable number then and maybe then, I think we could begin to understand the love that awaits us.
And this love is possible because of Him who will wipe away our every tear. The same One that keeps track of all our sorrows; collecting our tears in His bottle, recording each tear in His book (Psalm 56:8 (NLT) The same Person that has every hair on our head numbered (Luke 12:7)
The same Jesus who died; willingly, so we wouldn’t miss experiencing such love.
Happy Easter!! May we realize His love for us ever more deeply.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8
