I had a smidgen of a thought today. Well, not exactly just a thought, but a split second of feeling the freedom that I can only imagine we will feel when we get to heaven one day. I was listening to the radio and a certain song was playing about “imagining” when all we will do is forever worship the Lord. And a beautiful sense came over me…like I was experiencing it in that moment. All cares and needs vanished from my mind. And I thought why can’t I have that now. One day all we will do is worship the father when we are in heaven. If we can be that overjoyed to worship Him then, then why not now?
It’s because we are so preoccupied with self. It’s not entirely our fault or choice. We have to work to survive this life. We have to have a downward moving list of priorities starting with the Father, then our family, etc. When we are in heaven, we won’t have any worries or needs to take our attention away from God in the slightest. I don’t need to worry about anything really, because worrying fixes nothing. So why don’t we worry less about the things today brings?
Please help me to set me eyes on You, and keep them there! Not looking to the right or the left; trying to figure things out on my own. Help me to remember You are everything that I need, and You meet all my needs in every situation and circumstance. You will never leave me or forsake me. I know You love me, and Your love surpasses any other that I will ever know; filling me every need and working all things out for Your glory, so that I may grow closer and closer to You and be used as a testimony to others. I love you and praise Your great name, Jesus!!! Amen.
