Anticipation

“We know that when these bodies of ours are taken down like tents and folded away, they will be replaced by resurrection bodies in heaven—God-made, not handmade—and we’ll never have to relocate our “tents” again. Sometimes we can hardly wait to move—and so we cry out in frustration. Compared to what’s coming, living conditions around here seem like a stopover in an unfurnished shack, and we’re tired of it! We’ve been given a glimpse of the real thing, our true home, our resurrection bodies! The Spirit of God whets our appetite by giving us a taste of what’s ahead. He puts a little of heaven in our hearts so that we’ll never settle for less.”  2 Corinthians 5:1-5  The Message

Not a day goes by that I do not long for heaven and wonder what is going on there.  I am jealous of what I am missing.  This world that used to be so important to me is no longer my home.  Things and events that used to be so important to me no longer matter.  Every time I hear the whistle of a train I am ready to hop on board.  Anticipation of the Rapture and all of heaven’s unimagined glories and beauties runs high.  I’m so glad that there is something fantastic to look forward to in my future.

  1. This is so strong in me Candy that it is almost unbearable. When the Bible says that the creation is groaning, waiting for the revealing of the sons of God, I feel myself groaning, reaching up, asking how long O Lord? Eternity is written on our hearts and I believe Jesus is also waiting with anticipation for that day. Come Lord Jesus!
