Heaven. I'm thankful that in God's amazing outpouring of love for us, He gives us heaven. In the midst of grief, heaven provides peace and hope. When death stings, heaven soothes the soul. When tears fall, heaven raises a hand to wipe them away.
Why would God create such a wonderful place of no pain, sorrow, sadness, sickness of the soul or depravity of man? To give us hope, peace, comfort in our sorrow and a beautiful reminder that this world is just the preface to eternity.
Thank God for heaven.
PS. For those not in my CBC family who might read this.....
Please remember the Baier family in your prayers. Bryan, age 30, went home to be with Jesus today after recently being diagnosed with cancer. He leaves parents, a wife, 2 girls and a baby boy on the way in March. He also leaves a student ministry where he has served as a lay leader for years, a church family and friends who love him. Thanks for your prayers.
