From Ruth Meyer’s 31 Days of Praise:
Thank You that Your Son will return from heaven with a shout of triumph, that the dead in Christ will be raised imperishable… and in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, we shall all be utterly changed. We shall see the radiance of His face and the glorious majesty of His power. It will be a breathtaking wonder and splendor unimaginable to all who believe! Thank You that “whatever we may have to go through now is less than nothing compared with the magnificent future” You have planned for us.
That will be one amazing day, when Jesus comes down, ‘in a flash’ and we get caught up in the air. I’m not so scared of the changed part either!
I know many people who have lots of things about themselves that they would LOVE to change… not just for aesthetics either.. bad backs, arthritis, cancers… there is a lot that can go wrong with our bodies and in heaven, this stuff just won’t apply. It will be a lot of not applicable’s up there in heaven… aren’t you glad?
He heals us in ways that we don’t even know yet. I believe everything will be better.. our vision, hearing, smell. Can you imagine the smell of the roses in heaven?
I love real roses. Not such a fan of the dozen red ones people get on valentines day. (And not just because they are way too expensive.) They don’t smell. I remember my grandmother’s roses always smelling so sweet… I feel like heaven will have the sweetest aroma.
I can’t wait! What about you?
