Most of us sleep a third of our life away. Most of us also spend a third of our life at work.
While some are blessed and enjoy their work life, for others work is stressful and requires coping strategies to avoid burnout.
Add in the daily commute, shopping, attending appointments, time to eat, and all the other items on our "to do list" and we're left with little time for relaxation.
We know deep down that there's more to life and we secretly long for it.
It's like we're programmed for a slower, less stressful life. A life that allows us time to appreciate the beautiful things of life.
The Bible has a wealth of information that confirms this need. For example, we're assured of the joys of heaven that await us, which includes relief from all sorrow and suffering.
We'll be forever astonished and in awe at what shall be ours in the eternal presence of Jesus.
Can our entrance to heaven ever come too soon? Hardly!
Life in this world is like living in a motel room, whereas the Bible likens heaven to living in a mansion with many rooms.
Who would choose the one-room dwelling over the mansion with many rooms?
The experience of death is the one negative to claiming our home in heaven. But as David said in Psalm 23:4 there is nothing to fear in dying for the child of God—because death is merely a shadow.
God shall be with us to strengthen us and walk with us—all the way home.
All sorrow, tears, and sadness will fade away in the glory of heaven.
May we get a right view of this life today and be anxiously waiting on the Lord for the glorious day when we will be in heaven forever.
