One Day

“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. 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.

    1. Jesus and I are going to write a beautiful song. All the Angels are going to be our backup singers. In Heaven, I’m going to have a beautiful singing voice.

      1. I had a dream last year I was walking with Jesus it was a mass crowd of us together walking with him. When I get to heaven I want to talk with all my loved ones and sing sing sing

  1. Great Word!! At first I will probably be awe-struck! Laying prostrate at His feet. Then I will walk and talk to Him and the Saints. God bless you! ❤️

  2. If I’m honest I must admit it isn’t something I’ve ever considered…. I guess mainly because I’m actually not ready to die and yes I know we as “Saints/Christians” shouldn’t be afraid of death but I am…. So with that being said to answer your question; I believe I would be in awe, overly joyed that I made it in since there won’t be any more crying I couldn’t express my excitement or gratitude that way! So yes I’d be excited that I was one who scarcely made it in! Looking around to see everything the Bible described it as…..

    1. I agree I am afraid to die a Christian and I’m afraid I won’t make it into heaven if I barely make it in that will make me happy

      1. Joy. Please remember that your salvation is not because of what you have done, but because of what Jesus did for you. And He did it perfectly. It is about having a beautiful relationship with our Father who loves us all equally and accepts us all completely.

  3. Imagining how Beautiful it is in eternity I’m imagining myself going around taking 📸pictures of everything/everyone in white with Angel wings 😃is what I do now📸.

  4. I know I will be in such awe, I will fall on my face praising God. I look forward to seeing Jesus and His disciples face to face, to see Enoch, who walked with God and was taken directly into Heaven. I will also be joyous to see my family there, healed and in God’s heavenly glory. Thank sister for this devotional. 💓 God bless you 🙏

  5. Initially be in awe of the glory of GOD!!! Prostrate at his feet in humility for his sovereignty, commune with the Great crowd of witnesses that trailblazed before us!

    Maybe simple and silly, but i so appreciation His divinity in Creation. Such a gift.

  13. I can only imagine that day. I will be curled up in His arms experiencing His Love completely wash over me. My joy will be off the charts when I get to see Him face to face. I have stared into the clouds many times over the years imagining Jesus returning for me with all of His Heavenly angels. My joy will be complete when I finally get to see all of my loved ones, but especially my mama who I lost 40 years ago. Come soon Lord Jesus. I need you so. Calm my heart right now I pray. DOTK sisters pray for me fervently right now. I’m in pain and scared. I’m in a major trial. Blessings to all of you and prayers for you. Blessings to Keisha! You have been a lifesaver.

  16. I want to dance around God’s throne. You see, I have Cerebral Palsy, So to dance around His throne is going to be freedom!
    I told my sister to bury me in a pair of beautiful heels. I know I can’t take them to heaven with me, but it’s nice to think that I can dance in God‘s presence to glorify Him. I want to sing as I dance.

  17. I want to dance and praise God!! THen search heaven over for my loved ones and rejoice at the throne of grace singing and shouting ,praising the lord Jesus gir saving our souls for the kingdom of God almighty !!!

  18. I would be in Awe to be able to see MY LORD JESUS. I would Rub His Feet and run my fingers through His hair. I would enjoy walking, my hand in His while reflecting on all of the thoughts and questions that I had here on earth, some answered, some, not so much.
    I would sing in the Heavenly Choir, Rejoicing over the Goodness of the Lord.
    I would do everything possible to show Him the Love that He so Freely showed to me while I walked the path of Life❣️

  19. Thank God for the freedom from all the pain that I suffer from everyday. Then hug my mom, who I’ve missed so much!!
    Then rest and catch to and talk to her and the rest of my family that’s waiting for me.

  20. I imagine gold, rubies and diamonds all over; me meeting my Heavenly Father and seeing my mom and dad there. My daughter will be there, all my love ones will be waiting to see me too. I can’t wait to see Jesus and just talk to all the Saints. Just to feel love and no evil. Peaceful music and to be able to relax and rest. I know it is more than I can imagine but I am ready as I hold on to the strength of the Lord daily. I just want finish my race and hear well done my good in faithful servant.

    Blessings, Shalom and Agape.

  21. I can hear the song by Merci “I Can Only Imagine!” Overwhelmed with humility. Tearful! Bow down & worship our Father, God and also thank Him that despite my shortcomings; He allows me to be His servant. Thank Him for always being with me and for bringing inspirational, motivational, and encouraging people like yourself and others into my life at a crucial time. Thank God that I made it into His glorious Heavenly Kingdom along with family, friends, and many others including my enemies. God is worthy to be praised. Hallelujah! Amen.

  22. Since I don’t have a memory of sitting on my father’s lap, I imagine myself sitting on Daddy God’s lap with His arms around me as I listen to His heart beat.

  23. I will join the host of heaven to worship the King of kings . No more pains ,no more struggles . I look forward to see all my loved ones who made it ….enjoyment all the way in Jesus name . Amen

  24. I will just bask in the feeling of freedom from this struggle with the natural body’s desire to sin and satisfy itself.
    Can you imagine not to have to struggle and resist sin anymore?
    It would be pure peace, relaxation, and joy!
    I will be in the presence of Jesus, my King and ALl my relationships with others would be pure and filled with joy. No more distrust and fear that if I let others too close they will harm me. I can hardly even imagine it.

  25. I know what I am going do. I am going me lying face down at His feet crying. Why? Cause I will be in the presence of the King, the One who loved me and died for me. The One who never judged me even when I messed up. The One who blessed me when I was in the earthly realm. The One who kept me under His wings, safe from the fiery arrows of the enemy. Whenever I am in His presence I cry. His presence is so overwhelming and my expression of gratitude always shows through my tears. Someone who is not in tuned with the Spirit may think I’m weeping uncontrollably because something is affecting me, but indeed that is not so. It’s just that this earthly body cannot contain the over pouring glory of GOD. That’s why in churches when people are under the influence of the Holy Spirit they jump, they dance, they cry and when hands are laid on them they fall. It’s the power of GOD that floods like a river through those earthly bodies. Halleluajhhhh🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

  26. 🤔Me running to him 🥰and hugged him and don’t let him go 🤗just hold on to him 🙌🙌🙌❤️ ohhhhhh wow what a day that will beeeee 🥰

  27. I will tell Him that I Love Him because His voice was the first I heard telling me that He Loves me ❤️ and Thank Him for choosing me and for never leaving me alone ❤️

  28. It will be a joy and a privilege to be face to face with the Lord Jesus Christ who have brought me through so many things in my life I have never seen him face to face but I have seen the work he have done in my life I know if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be here today so it would be a great privilege and an honor to meet him face to face and all my loved ones I think him so much for stepping in changing my life bring me out of that world I was in saving my soul I know he’s real and nobody can make me doubt him because anytime you get blown up in the house twice Burns all over your body but at the end there is no scars to show that I was burned heal my body from first second-degree burns I was 39 years old never forget the date May the 18th 1989 I am so grateful and thankful to my savior for saving me he has blessed me to reach the age of 71 years old with four adult children and six adult grandchildren and one great-great son on the way if I would have died in the fire I wouldn’t be here to see any of them grow up God is good all the time that’s why I try my best to serve him the best I know how I pray that God put his blessings upon all of you and give all of your traveling Mercy be safe be blessed 🤗🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  29. Mercy Me sing the song “I Can Only Imagine.” This stands true for me. I’ve always seen myself dancing at the feet of God. However, when that time comes I don’t believe I’ll be able to speak at all.

  30. I look forward to meeting Jesus face to face, and then I look forward to seeing my sweet mama again. She passed away almost 2 years ago. However, due to her illness, she won my dad to the Lord as he agreed to do Bible studies with her. He was Baptized in the precious name of Jesus, and filled with the Holy Ghost. He is now 78 and living for the Lord.

  31. Thank you each day you bless my heart with the true and living words of God
    This past few years have been such a struggle to fight each day to believe true to see truth to understand it all and to make sure I make it home each day
    Cause tomorrow is not promised to no one
    I can imagine mr in heaven praise Him in spirit and truth as a spirit worshiping him all day
    As angels surround us doing all the work the lord appointed them to do and we who are chosen will worship in spirit and in truth all day long
    See everything so beautiful to my new spiritual eyes
    I can’t wait for the day He tells me well done my faithful servant come in
    Thank you ❤️

  32. Look up to the sky, for after my Lord and King embraces me in His loving and welcoming arms, I will be loop de looping above praising Jesus for all eternity.

  33. I always imagined that the first thing I would do is run to Jesus and put my arms around his neck. Like in a little girl when daddy comes home kind way. I would hold onto to him for a very long time and never want to let go.
