I have been experiencing an autoimmune flare up this past week. Out of an abundance of caution, my doctor had me get tested for COVID-19 to make sure it isn’t the cause. I highly doubt it is, but I went for testing yesterday anyway.
My imagination can get a bit carried away at times. As I watched nurses in hazmat suits walking from car to car to give the test, I began imagining I had just returned from outer space and needed to get tested for alien contamination.
Then I began imagine that they were looking for alien clones living among us.
The longer I waited in my car during the drive thru testing, the more I entertained myself with possibilities such as perhaps the Zombie Apocalypse had happened, so everyone had to be screened.
As active as my imagination is, I can’t really begin to comprehend what heaven will be like. We don’t know much about it. We know there are none of the sorrows of this life. We know it has a beauty far above what we have experienced here. We have brief descriptions such as this one in Revelation 21:
“I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it”
So join me in trying to envision heaven in the presence of Jesus while listening to this song.
