“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will be the first to rise. After that, we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words…” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, Berean Study Bible.
Years ago, I had a dream that I was standing outside in an open field, and as I looked up at the sky, I began to go up in the air. As I went up, I could sense my Father smiling at me. The only thing on my mind was I finally get to see Him face to face. The only thing I was thinking about was finally I get to see the One who had been with me all this time. Nothing else mattered.
I know you’ve been in the trenches, trying your hardest not to lose heart. You’re trying to hold on until the end, and it’s been an unbelievable fight. God knows, and He promises as we wait on Him, looking forward to His return, we will receive renewed strength, and we will mount up with wings as an eagle. Waiting on God causes us to run and not get weary; to walk and not faint (see Isaiah 40:31).
Take a moment each day to think about eternity with the Father. There will be no more tears and no more pain. One day, you will see Him face to face. You will enter into His rest and see His glory. My husband imagines that he will find a tree somewhere and sit down next to it–taking it all in. I imagine myself like a kid in a candy store–exploring, talking with everyone, and making music with all of heaven’s instruments!
What do you imagine yourself doing? I want to know.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for giving me new strength as I wait on you. Spending eternity with you sometimes seem far away, but I know it’s closer than I think. Help me to finish the work you’ve given me to do on earth. And when life gets hard as it often does, help me to think about all that awaits me in eternity with you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I yearn to sit on my Daddy God’s lap and lay on his chest like a little girl!! There is no better place to be but in His arms!!
This is how I see myself as well. Being on the lap of my Father. Hearing His heartbeat.
I imagine living on the earth as it should have been before sin! Everything has been restored to its original beauty without all the ugliness that happened when the fall happened. I imagine traveling all over with Jesus, seeing everything I didn’t get to see when I was living on the earth when it was sinful. And seeing all of my loved ones, especially my husband, my parents, special aunt and uncle again. And spending eternity with all of them exploring the restored Earth and heavens and universe!
I want to talk with my Heavenly Father. Then off I go to talk with family that haven’t seen in such a long time. Running, jumping, singing and praising. I just have to seek out my Mother to hug her, hug her and kiss her. Tell her how wonderful I feel to be with her in our Heavenly Home. WOW! This tears me up thinking about. No Pain! No Sorrow, No Sickness or Diseases! Glory to God!
This touched my heart so much because this is exactly the way I feel, the words you write always speak to my heart and spirit. My 18 year old son was innocently murdered Thanksgiving break in 2017, so I know when I get to heaven he will be right there and I’m just going to hug and hold him for the longest time.
I will see my sweet, beautiful grandmothers, and grandpa! I also want a big, beautiful Tiger that I will ride on and play with! I’ll have an Elephant, a huge Brown Bear (and some cute little bear cubs), and a Giraffe. They will all be my pets! I’d love a Lion as well, with a huge, golden mane! Of course, me and Jesus will take walks and laugh and be silly together! I’ll talk to Peter and tell him that I totally “got” him, and that I really liked him! I’ll visit Abraham and Sara, and King David, and sit and paint with Vincent Van Gogh!!
I imagine being able to sing praises with no vocal limitations like we all have now. Able to sing in any key and not get tired. And harmony like the most wonderful choir, but better. So amazing it will be!
I see myself touching Jesus’s hands where they nailed Him. I think as much as I anticipate and think i would be very excited outwardly i think my excitement and anticipation would leave me just spellbound, speechless for a bit and in awe of finally getting to see my Saviour and Heavenly Father. I can only imagine that if the joy i feel on this earth thinking about it now fills my heart, then i have no clue how to describe the magnitude of joy when i get there, joy unspeakable is my best attempt at description.
Gratitude, worship, basking in His presence, face-to-face conversation, just bowing in His glorious presence and giving Him all the praise and thanks for saving us…plus the bonus of checking out true perfection that was intended for mankind at creation. Oh what a day that will be!!!!
I dream of heaven often. I think about the vibrant colors I will see that I’ve never seen before. Like the flowers, the streets of gold and the sea of crystal. I imagine swimming in it and playing with the fish that are friendly and play back! Heaven is going to be so cool! Meeting my heavenly father face to face and just hugging him and talking to him. Knowing all the mysteries. I definitely want to ride the chariots of fire! It definitely will not be boring as some people think. We will be ruling and reigning with Christ. I cant wait!!! See you ladies there! 💝
I just want to be in the presence of all the Glory that awaits me. To live with God, Jesus, the Angels and the saints forever more. To live in a world free of sin and pain.
First thank HIM for everything. Give him a great big hug and talk to him, ask him questions. Then go and socialize with everybody in heaven!!!! I would love to put a a show for him to dance and worship and probably cry of overwhelming joy!
I think about when I get to heaven I just want to sit at his feet and worship him and listen
🌾 “Wow glad you ask, couldn’t wait to share it with you”. I’m like a child who’s longing to see her Daddy who’s been gone for a very long time, and I finally sees Jesus from a distance and I’m running towards him with gladness and tears of joy running down my face with opened arms crying with joy and jumps into his arms and embrace him tightly not wanting to let go. Saying. “Daddy Oh Daddy How your daughter missed you and I 💕 Love you so very much. “And that’s what Im going tell my Heavenly Father when I see him”. I Am a Child if the Most High 👑 King Longing to be with her ABBA Father in Heaven. I Love 💕 you Jesus. 🌾
My Best Friend…….when I get there and finally see my Best Friend there’s a question that I long to ask: How could you love me so much.??
And yeah I don’t think I will ever again take my eyes off of Him.
May God help us to turn our eyes upon Him while we’re here. Looking unto the author and finisher of our faith, Hebrews 12:2
I’ll sing to him. Oh how I love Jesus. With a loud voice I will praise him and thank him for all he has done for me. And tell him how happy I am to finally look upon his face. O…h what a glorious day it will be!!!!!!. I’m so happy I’ll see him face to face. It’s hard to contain myself just thinking about that day. What a day.
I’ve always imagined running into the arms of Jesuand getting the hug I have always wanted from Him
For me, is like sitting an a beach looking out pass the ocean to the sun rise or set. Taking in all the beautiful that our Heavenly Father created.
Such a great word, thank you. I have always imagined me sitting up under a very big tree, by a lake with Jesus. Talking about all kinds of things. Laughing bout my silly moments and the times He has manifested His presence to me, to lead and comfort me through my most difficult situations. I see us laughing and bumping shoulders. This is my most precious thoughts about the day I get to have my real one on one time with my savior.
Wow very beautiful stories. I Thank each one of you for sharing. Leaves much to imagine, ponder, & dream about. Again Thank You.
I feel like you my sister Debbie. I can’t wait to see DADDY.I just want to be held in HIS ARMS for Thousands and Thousands of years,Before exploring my new home HEAVEN ,And Fellowshipping with The Saints. Continue to be encourage,HE IS COMING SOON
I know I will finally be free of all my pain. I can see God’s face and lay my head in his lap and thank him for giving me the strength all those years. For being my source of peace during all the storms and for making me feel loved when I felt so betrayed.
I will also see my mom that passed away from cancer at 47. I will hug her so hard.
Thank you for this wonderful encouragement!
Ahhhh..I think I will be in AWE to be in His presence, and most definitely give Him such a BIG HUG!!!
Being able to see all of my love ones and celebrate being with the Blessed and Great ” I AM “
I just imagine me jumping up and down saying “I love You” and than go and look for my momma, daddy, brother, husband, my niece and 3 nephews than my favorite Aunties Stella and Cill and rest family and friends with Tears of Joy ( just like now as I am writing this)…Saying “THANK YOU JESUS!!!
I truly enjoy the word that you share! Thank you! I’ve always imagined sitting near the ocean with mountains on either side, feeling the peace of the Father, just knowing He is right there with me forever! What a great time it will be!
I think that I would want to have a family gathering with all my family from each side and laugh and talk and Praise God with music and dance. I could see my father dancing with me because he was a great dancer I image him up in heaven Now dancing and singing with my grandparents on both sides of the family and his sibling and friends making a joyful noice. I miss all my family especially my father but I know he watches over me with God.
😃🌷😘😍✝️After meeting Jesus, I want Him to tell me all the unseen danger He protects me from. Then go meet all me loved ones❤️😃🙏🏼
Setting at His Feet..👣🙏🏾
I want see Jesus .He said in the Word I go to prepare a room for you. So where I am I will be to. Then I want to walk around Heaven seen my family and friends. Then just sit and Smile .I known I made it and all my family,and friends to. No more tear. No more pain. Just Jesus Christ lead His children…

When. i t rhink of heaven i believe we will be able to Praise our Savior ouri feelings wont be of this world we will be transformed with the love of our Holy Father who sits on the throne of righouseness. Glory glory. I love you Jesus
“Seeing Jesus, Just Laying At Jesus Feet Worshipping Him For 7,000 Years. What A Time. Hallelujah. “
I want to dance with Jesus! I imagine dancing all over in fields of beautiful flowers. I have always thought about being able to just hug a lion (my favorite animal) and to kiss him on his nose. I want to see my mom…when she passed my husband saw a vision of her as a young woman dancing and I heard the song How Majestic is Your Name!
Thank you, Kesha for sharing the Father’s heart with us everyday! You are a blessing! ❤🙌🙏
I imagine myself I’m with God in an open field full of flowers dancing and singing with beautiful songs and as we sat under a tree I will tell Him my life story on how grateful and thankful I am of trusting Him my mind, soul and my heart.
I always imagine myself as a little girl walking sort of on a yellow bring road taking in the scenery as everything glistens and admiring all the beautiful colors and God smiling at me because I am experiencing what He promised.
I will receive my crown with emeralds, rubies, sapphires and diamonds, from Our Father. Then, I will look for all family members who has transitioned before me.
I always envision I’m a young girl an there’s a group of us both boys and girls under s shaded tree and Jesus is treating us. We are all leaning in to hear His every word.
That was supposed to say teaching us🥰
😒😏 I just see myself smiling and feeling a sense of great relief …..I mean just beaming cause finally I am free. I look forward to all the beauty and splendor of my heavenly home and finally meeting the King👑 who died for me 💖✝🙋🏾
I see myself running up to my Father with a big smile, saying Im so happy to finally see, smell and touch you! Can’t wait to sing in the choir and see everything He has promised!
When that day comes I will be at his side holding his hands that’s where I want to be.
I always imagine like most of us, to sit on His lap, have Him to just hold me and demonstrate piece by piece how HIS PRESENCE was in every aspect of my life… EVEN WHEN I WASN’T AWARE. I must admit that I probably would be a little selfish with THE LORD, trying to take up as much time as I possibly could with Him.😄
I imagine rubbing His feet and playing in His hair (For I do have the gift of being a hair stylist). I would enjoy singing Praises to Him continuously and communing with all of my loved ones through all eternity ❣️
Lol! Okay now, rub His and do His hair honey! 😃
***rub His feet***
I imagine myself running towards Him, giving Him the biggest, and tightest hug! Bowing, kneeling in prayer… Telling Him thank you.. acting like one of His BIGGEST fans that the Cherubim Angels would have to be on guard just in case I won’t stop smothering Him with LOVE! I would sing to Him, let Him know how much I love Him! Then I would stand in awe, in a gaze! And meditate on the beauty I’m witnessing. And hopefully by that time all my family and friends would surround me, snap me out of it, and embrace me with greetings and love. And we all just jump for joy and worship singing praises to the King of Kings… “Hosanna… Hosanna… In the highest”! Amen!!!
BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL …. AMEN ❣️
I would be soooo
overwhelmed with joy🙌🏼
That I finally get to see my
Heavenly Father face ❤️
What a day of rejoicing that will be…AMEN 🙏🏼

I imagine just standing staring at Jesus in awe, unable to speak, just tears streaming down my face. Everyone around me is crying and worshipping him and I just stand in awe. He is making eye contact with all of us one by one and when it is my turn, his gaze says Sara I love you, I always did, even when you didnt think so. And I softly smile, still motionless standing in the presence of the living lamb.
Hallelujah Praise God 🙌🏽 I can only imagine, just to stand before God. Gloryyyyyyyy 🙌🏽 Just to be able to see His face for the very first time. 😢 To hold His hands, and give Him the biggest hug, years of Joy will over take my soul, and I will begin to SHOUT HALLELUJAH PRAISE GOD 🙌🏽 I made it👀🙏🏽👏🏽💃💃💃💃💃💃 So, glad I made it💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼🙌🏽🙏🏽👏🏽 Thank YOU GOD for loving me🙌🏽 My God and I will just walk around Heaven, and I will just me so Happy🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 All my troubles will be over🙌🏽🙏🏽😢 what a day, what a day 🙏🏽😢🙌🏽 Amen and AMEN 🙌🏽❤️🙏🏽❤️
I will be glad to be in a better place where there is lost of peace and love for each other.
First, His arms around me, holding me tight, then the understanding, of everything, washing over me, then my voice singing His praises with all the others who will be singing, I imagine the Heavenly Hosts will already know my story, so I wont need to repeat it, then my one question (at this time)” May I please be someone’s angel? To watch over and encourage and pray for?” Prayer has become a mighty tool in my life, to have received from others, and to give unselfishly, thanks be to God.
