The sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. - Romans 8:18 (NRSV)

I tend not to spend much time thinking about heaven but focus instead on enjoying the benefits of this world, like watching movies, eating, and fishing. However, God directs us to “set our minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth” (Col. 3:2).

Today's Prayer
Help us, God, to be thankful every day for Christ’s sacrifice until we find our home in heaven with you. Amen.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
