Heaven’s Walls

When someone we love dies, we go through a time of grieving. Maybe at first we are shocked and upset. But with time, we accept the fact that the person we love is gone.
Recently my great-uncle passed away. He was born with special needs, and he lived his entire life in a special home. He suffered through his life, but I am so glad that now he has no more pain or suffering. My family and I mourn his death, but we are comforted to know that we will live with him forever in heaven.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul talks about the goal of living forever with God. In verse 13b, Paul says, “I try as hard as I can to reach the goal that is before me.” Then in verse 20, Paul reminds us that “our homeland is in heaven. We are waiting for our Savior to come from heaven. Our Savior is our Lord Jesus Christ.”
If you are mourning today, let God comfort you. And keep focused on the goal of heaven.
