Not Better Than Heaven

Post  fennywest on Sat 09 Jun 2012, 12:39 pm

Think of the most wonderful place you have ever been, may be on holidays, with a setting that wowed you and you have been longing to go back there to soak up the atmosphere again.
“Not better than heaven!”
Imagine the most amazing relationship you had that left you stunned and gasping for more encounter with that person.
“Not better than heaven!”
What meal is so sumptuous, mouth watering, that you would not mind having it everyday?
“Not better than heaven!”
What are the attractions of this world? Is it the money? the gadgets?
What would you miss most if you were called home today?
“Not better than heaven!”

Regardless of the place
Regardless of the face
Regardless of the phase
“Not better than heaven!”

Regardless of the joys
From the latest toys
Or worldly decoys
“Not better than heaven!”

No matter how beautiful
No matter how wonderful
Or even graceful
“Not better than heaven!”

Despite the allurement
Or the enjoyment
Or employment
“Not better than heaven!”
A Better Place
When my friend Marci’s father-in-law passed away, she stopped making his favorite dessert: pineapple salad. One day, her little boy asked why she no longer served it. She replied, “It reminds me of Papa, and it makes me sad; Papa really liked that dessert.” Her son replied in a chipper tone, “Not better than heaven!”
That little boy had the right idea. Heaven is a much better place. Remembering this can help ease our sadness when things on earth trigger memories of believing loved ones who have passed away. Our friends and family who have heavenly addresses are much happier there because:
• Heaven is God’s home. God’s followers will enjoy His presence for all eternity (Rev. 21:3-4).
• Heaven is comfortable in every way. Heaven’s residents will never be sick or upset (21:4), hungry or thirsty (7:16).
• Heaven is a beautiful place. A “clear as crystal” river will flow from God’s throne (22:1), and God Himself will give heaven its light (22:5).
Do things in this world sometimes remind you of believers who have moved on to the next world? If so, it’s comforting to think that they are now enjoying heaven—a better place by far.
If God has made this world so fair,
Where sin and death abound,
How beautiful beyond compare
Will paradise be found! —Montgomery
The pleasures of earth cannot be compared to the joys of heaven.
