This is a question that many of us think about or ponder. It many hearken joy and longing to be near loved ones again. Some even seek to be in heaven to end physical suffering and brokenness.
I often wonder what heaven will look like. Sometimes I imagine it to be a large BBQ or cookout with all of creation there. There is food for all kinds and shapes. Sometimes I remember a sermon from an old pastor. He described heaven as eternal glorification with voice and harps. Not the beer! That would be neat.
I am not a big worshiper with voice. I do not like singing nor do I gain pleasure from it. I feel distanced as I sing at times in worship. I love to listen to the songs sung. I mediate and imagine the words penetrating my heart, deep with in. Refining my heart and shaping my experience. All of this is shattered when I seek to add my voice. I am a heart song singer. I get joy from it.
So is there a place in heaven? What will heaven look like? I have no clue. At times I wonder if heaven exists at all. I hope for more than this. I have hope for more than this. I pray that I am included in this. I just get all mucked up in the thought of anther plan and sphere that is heaven. I am not smart enough to get it. So I ponder and wait. I shall die one day and judgment shall come. I just hope that I am square with Christ and that heart song singers can join in the eternal chorus as they sing.
