We get to talking about Heaven around our place. What’s it going to be like? What are we going to be able to do? Who are we going to see? And won’t it be fun to hear the stories from the Bible from the people themselves.
Can you imagine hearing about the inside of a whale from Jonah himself?
Or listening to David talking about how big Goliath was?
Or maybe we can find the little boy that gave his lunch away and have him tell us all about eating with Jesus.
But what amazes my kids more than anything is when I tell them that those people from the Bible are going to come looking for them to tell a story. Can you imagine that ?
Getting a tap on the should from Queen Esther, and then she asks, "Tell me your story." And then a crowd gathers at their feet, the feet of my little children. And there is Samuel and Zaccheus sitting next to Ruth and Moses. And they are asking them, "How did God use you to be a blessing?" And maybe Joshua raises his hand to say "Tell us about the walls God tore down for you." And maybe Noah will want to know about when it was the hardest to trust.
Miss Love especially gets wide eyed at the thought of all her favorite friends from the Bible wanting to find her and ask her about her story. 'Cause to me, that is what Heaven will be like. Everyone sharing their stories.
What will your story be like? Will it be like the widow who shared her last meal with Elijah? Or maybe like Peter pulling blessings out of the sea with a net. Maybe God will use your gift to Haiti like He did when he fed the 5,000.
Today is our last day of the Giving to Haiti Weekend. I hope this opportunity has blessed your family.
Tomorrow I will announce the winners from last week Give Aways, plus Give Away even more.
Tomorrow is also Meatless Monday, so get your recipes or tips ready. We would love to have you join us.
