Until Then…

I am one of those people who can’t wait until the day I get to heaven and meet Jesus face-to-face. I love my life… and I love the people God has placed in my life, but I cannot wait until the day I finally get home! So I was excited to wake up this morning with these new words and melody in my head. So excited that I jumped out of bed, grabbed my phone and (bleary-eyed) wrote down the words before I lost them. After an hour with my iPad and piano here’s what I got.

I am beyond thankful for my day off today to flesh this out a little. I feel so blessed and honored to hear this in my head, to worship with these words this morning. And it’s just plain fun!! There are lots of songs about heaven and going there in every genre from spirituals to contemporary. Maybe one more can’t hurt?

  1. Oh my Martha, the song makes me cry.  I feel the same way about wanting to meet Jesus face to face and can’t wait.  It isn’t just when I feel life is hard but even when He blesses me more than I deserve seems when I want to go home and feel perhaps that is selfish of me.  But hearing you put it into words helps me realize that God has put that longing in my heart.  I am reminded of the scripture “delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”.  This one will surely come to pass.

       You have blessed me this morning.

    IN HIS LOVE Shirley


    1. Your words have blessed me!!! And you know we all that that God-shaped hole in our hearts to be near Him, to be with Him, and to be in heaven with Him some day… Whenever HE decides. Until then, I just want to serve him and be what he wants me to be. Sometimes I feel like I’m failing miserably… But I am trying, and that is all he requires. Obedience!


  2. Oh my… I absolutely love this!! Beautiful lyrics and music. You know as soon as I can get to my keyboard I am going to work this up.. LOL!!
    I love using 6th, 7th added and love using sus2 and sus4 in my writing. I really love to experiment with different chord structures, chords you just don’t hear everyday..
