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).
Thinking of heaven makes me more joyful about salvation in Christ.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
