We sit entangled in intimate conversation. Candles burn creating ambience as the time passes by. The Pastor I call Husband looks directly at me. I see his gentle blue eyes slightly misty.
“You know” He said softly “I had a revelation the other day. I have only forty to fifty years of loving you as your husband. I need to cherish you as I prepare you for glory. We won’t be married in heaven and that makes me sad. I’m going to have to hand you to Jesus.”
The moment is quiet as I sit staring at him speechless by the intense love a man has for a woman. I didn’t have a verbal reply but my face said it all…
Earth is a place of transition for something even more amazing. Eternal bliss is on the forecast for all those who believe.
“Look” it says in Isaiah 65:17 “I’m creating a new heavens and new earth-so wonderful that no one will even think about the old ones anymore. Be glad and rejoice forever in my creation! And look, I will create Jerusalem as a place of happiness. Her people will be a source of joy, I will rejoice in my Jerusalem and delight in my people. And the sound of weeping and crying will no longer be heard.”
The preparation for glory has begun in you. From the moment you sucked air and filled lungs a purpose was given. Predestined for His names sake.
The clock ticks with expectation…
Are you listening to the unique tune being strummed for you life?
Our actions and words should point to the Father, never compromising to fit the mould of what is portrayed as the good life of this world. Do you not remember that we are here today and gone tomorrow…withering flowers planted in a field.
Rise up and take charge of the convictions placed on your heart. Cast your cares onto the broad shoulders of God who will carry you through all situations and do not worry. Can your worries add a single moment to your life?
Our earthly bodies will decompose yet our eternal spirit will live on dancing in freedom. It’s a moment to gain perspective. To be reminded that the work we do for His name is not done in vain. We are vessels on an eternal mission…
Trials and tribulations accompany our journey yet they don’t last forever. So be reminded brothers and sisters that we will enter Kingdom gates where our Saviour greets us with these words-
“Welcome good and faithful servant.”
I life without mediocrity is hard to attain but will be achieved when eyes are focused on our heavenly destination…
