Yesterday I shared Jesus Will Come Back For Us. As someone who lives with chronic illness it caused me to think about what I won’t miss after Jesus comes back for those who believe in him.
I won’t miss morning stiffness.
I won’t miss chronic pain.
I won’t miss constant fatigue.
I won’t miss doctors.
I won’t miss flare ups.
The list could go on of things that I won’t miss. But I also realize what keeps me going through it all is something that I will miss. It is what gets me up and keeps me going. It is what keeps my attitude from going down. It is my motivation for my life.
What will I miss?
I will miss sharing the love of Jesus with people who do not know him. In heaven everyone knows Jesus. Everyone has experienced and continues to experience the love of Jesus in heaven.
There is one more thing I would miss. I would miss teaching English Second Language. I don’t think there will be a need for that in heaven.
What I won’t miss causes me to wish for the return of Jesus today. What I will miss causes me to hope for more years in this life.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Amen well said ☺️🙏
Thank you 🙏
With Carlton’s passage into Heaven barely 3 months ago, I have been thinking often of what it must be like in Heaven. I wonder what he is doing in Heaven. We only have limited ability to describe what we think it MIGHT be like, and what we MIGHT be doing there. I totally understand your thought process, but then I have to move to that familiar verse found in 1Corinthians 2:9 –
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
WOW! “What a day, glorious day, that will be.” I don’t believe we will miss a thing about earth!
A wonderful reunion it will be for you and Carlton
What a wonderful balance and that sounds just like Paul when he said, to live is Christ but to die is gain
I love that verse
Me too 😍
Well said Matt! Being retired, I still think of many of the adults who graced my life during my teaching, coaching, and athletic administration time.
Even though retired you still reach people through your blog
I don’t think you will miss anything in heaven. Old things will pass away and be forgotten. 🙂. But I understand what you mean.
Heaven will be wonderful
You are in agreement with the Apostle Paul.
He is good company to be with
I wont miss the feeling of fatigue.
I will miss shopping in a mall lol
Miss shopping- for me it is no lol
