Heaven

On this stormy Lord’s Day, I wake up to the sound of thunder, heavy rain, and the David Crowder Band singing O Praise Him in my aching head. Aching because of the storm and the pressure system, and because I slept later than normal so coffee is in order.

Turn your ear
To heaven and hear
The noise inside
The sound of angel’s awe
The sound of angel’s songs
And all this for a King
We could join and sing
All to Christ the King

And another verse…

Turn your gaze
To heaven and raise
A joyous noise
O the sound of salvation come
The sound of rescued ones
And all this for a King
Angels join to sing
All for Christ our King

How appropriate to hear praise on the Sabbath Day! And I love these lyrics. I love to sing about heaven and what it may be like. I love to imagine the sounds and sights of heaven. I’ve read John Piper’s book, 90 Minutes in Heaven and Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent (now a movie.) Both made me so excited that heaven is my final destination.

The only way to truly know what heaven is like is by being there, and though I’m in no hurry to get there, unless The Lord chooses otherwise, I am ready to go. I know where my final destination is, and I can’t wait to see my precious Jesus face to face and hear those angel songs and the sound of salvation come and rescued ones. And I will join those songs and sing praises to my God and King for eternity.

Hallelujah!!! Even so, Lord Jesus, come.
