It truly is hard to fathom what God has in store for those of us who love Him, who have been covered by the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. Honestly, I long for that day…that day when I get to meet my Saviour face to face and cast crowns at His feet.
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:8 (KJV)
I think our gracious God gives us both tiny and, in some cases, enormous snapshots of the beauty he has in store for us, but ultimately, I think heaven will be beyond our wildest imaginations in the Holiest of Holies kind of ways.
Soooo, here’s the thing…I started typing out this long-winded article plastered with countless verses swirling through my head and then decided I needed to STOP and save that post for another day when I have a little more time to piece it together in the manner in which the Lord has placed it on my heart to do.
That being said, in the meantime, today I just want to share with you a photo I took over the weekend out of the big bay window on the front of my house that inspired the chalk art I doodled up last night. What a blessing it is to stop and praise God for his amazing creation!
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Palm 19:1 (KJV)
Whenever, I look up at God’s beautiful sky, I always wonder, “Is today the day, Lord? Is today the day we get to meet you in the clouds? Is today the day I get to meet that blessed hope?”
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 (KJV)
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. Titus 2:13 (KJV)
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28 (KJV)
Keep looking up, beloved. He IS coming!
To Christ be the glory!
