When I see beauty or witness sacrificial love, I often think of Heaven and marvel at how wonderful it will be; I call this experience a glimpse of eternity.
Here’s an excerpt from a recent journal entry of mine that was inspired by Psalm 26:8.
Going home to Heaven won’t be anything like Dorothy’s trip to Oz. We won’t wish to return to our earthly home–whatsoever. We won’t need or want to click any red shoes together. We’ll be dressed in spotless white and all will be right. We’ll see Jesus face to face, and we’ll worship Him with satisfied souls.
He ain’t no fake wizard. He’s the King of Glory.
I love the house where you live,
the place where your glory dwells.
Psalm 26:8 NIV
Where Your Glory Dwells
I long for the moment
when I see where You dwell
and I enter Your Glory Land
of all that’s holy and well
I long for the morning
when I wake up in Heaven
and realize fully
the salvation You’ve given.

I don’t know about you, but I often think about Heaven when I’m disappointed in things around me. Sometimes I’ll half-jokingly say, “I’ll bet there won’t be things that break in Heaven. God doesn’t make junk.”
I also ponder Paradise when I experience pain; God said there won’t be any tears shed there.
I think it’s good to remember where God’s children are headed. It motivates us to keep walking forward regardless of how hard the journey gets. And when we see glimpses of eternity, we can give thanks and rejoice that the best is yet to come.
Do you think about Heaven?
What are some of the things you’re looking forward to about it?
