Heaven

Earth is not our home- heaven is.

What does heaven look like? What does it feel like? I don’t know. But I do know what the Word says about the atmosphere God creates in the place that He dwells:

“Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and joy are in His dwelling place.”

1 Chronicles 16:27 NIV

I may not have the details of what it looks like but I know that it is magnificent. More than that, joy and strength permeates the air and fills its rooms. Truthfully, wherever God is, He brings these attributes with Him. They are a part of who He is.

Where He is, strength abounds and joy lives.

Heaven is a real place and someday you will be there.

Until then, may you experience God’s presence here on earth and be filled with such peace and deep joy that it makes you homesick for heaven.

When I am feeling weak and my heart is heavy, I whisper these sweet words of invitation: Father, may your presence fill this space, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Where He is, strength abounds and joy lives.

The Presence of Joy

What does heaven look like? What does it feel like? I don’t know. But I do know what the Word says about the atmosphere God creates and place where he dwells:

“Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place.” (1 Chronicles 16:27 NIV)

I may not have the details of what it looks like but I know that it is magnificent. More than that, joy and strength permeates the air and fills its rooms. Truthfully, wherever God is, he brings these attributes with him in heaven and on earth. They are a part of who he is.

Many times when I am feeling weak and heart heavy, I whisper sweet words of invitation. I ask for God’s presence to fill my space. I pray “your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Because where he is, joy abounds. And by some miracle, I can wrap myself in it and in him.

May his presence permeate where ever you are right now and fill it to the brim with his joy and strength. Amen.
