Worth the Wait — 6 Comments

  1. Good question Sheryl. I guess my most recent long wait with intense longing and even fear thar it would somehow be prevented (due to sickness or an accident) was my recent visit to Texas to see my son and his family. It is always good to ponder going to our heavenly homeland. My spirt truly does long for that as my body continues to wear away. This home is not eternal and was never meant to be. God planned to make us His own before He even created us.

    • Hi, Barbara. Your wording about your long wait to see your son and his family was interesting because you included an emotion I haven’t thought of: fear that somehow your trip would be canceled.

      What a sobering thought. Imagine the fear that heaven may not “happen” for you. Thankfully, we can know for sure! Aren’t you thankful that God loved us so much that He gave up His only Son to die on the cross for our sins?

      Thank you do much for stopping by, Barbara.

  2. Recent times of anticipation that really stand out in my mind are plans to see loved ones, too. At Christmastime, our family planned to visit with my brother and his family and my sister and her family, all at my grandparents’ house. I only get to see my brother every few years, so that had me especially eager. When we arrived in town, we found out my grandpa had been admitted to the hospital that very morning. My heart sank.

    I was very thankful I could be there to support him. Obviously, Christmas went a bit different than expected, but we all thoroughly enjoyed each other, nonetheless.

    One thing in Heaven is that there will be no surprises like that one — only joyous surprises! And how blessed the reunion!

    Encouraging post, Sheryl. Thank you.

    • I’m glad your granpa had so many who loved him around him during that time, Sheila.

      And that was a great reminder about heaven will be ALL GOOD – no more tears!
      I’m glad you stopped by, Sheila. Thank you.
