Heaven

“He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea.” Job 9:8 NIV

God doesn’t reveal how we will appear physically in Heaven. Jesus wasn’t easily recognized by His friend Mary Magdalene or His followers after the resurrection.

God does not reveal EVERYTHING to us at once. Sometimes he waits a lifetime. Some of us need to digest life first. Many of us need time and experience to enable our ability to fully comprehend His messaging.

God does reveal to us that we will be in His physical presence and that ALL things will be new! Those two nuggets of information seed infinite possibilities. We know that our sins will not come to mind, plus pain and sorrow won’t exist. Jesus healed many people suffering physically and mentally during His earthly ministry. God explains enough for us to understand and know that Heaven is where we want to be. see Isaiah 65:17 

God’s Children

God makes it abundantly clear that we are the apple of His eye. We are all God’s toddler children. He created an entire universe so we could experience His great Love for us in this mortal lifetime. His good and perfect plan is for us to grow from this tiny finite earthly cradle into His very glorious and beyond beautiful infinite kingdom paradise!

A lifetime is nothing compared to heaven’s eternity
A hope makes it possible
A feeling makes it real

I was once tired, now I’m REtired… Except for some unavoidable honey-dos, I pretty much goof off for a living now. My last career job was designing internet operating circuit boards along with a distinguished team of engineers, managers and support personnel. Prior to that I was an electronics technician evolving into circuit board design in the defense industry working with tactical missile systems. My first career job was a professional artist. During my younger years I worked many odd jobs beginning at age nine with a newspaper delivery route.
