LONGING FOR HEAVEN



“But now that he is dead,
why should I fast?
I will go to him,
but he will not return to me.”
2 SAMUEL 12:23 (NIV)



King David’s words after the death of his infant son have always brought me great comfort. They remind me that death is not final, that it is only a temporary separation from the ones we love.


That knowledge helps lessen the pain of separation but it doesn’t make it go away. It can’t … because a piece of our heart is missing, a piece that has gone ahead.


With the death of someone we love, our longing for heaven grows stronger, because that is where our heart is, taken there a piece at a time by the ones we loved on this earth.



And now, dear brothers and sisters,
we want you to know what will happen
to the believers who have died
so you will not grieve like people
who have no hope.
1 THESSALONIANS 4:13 (NLT)


On the journey with you,
Jan Dravecky
