"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
I had a total change in my perspective this evening talking to a friend in the coffee shop. She said,
"Earth is the worst hell believers will ever experience and the best heaven unbelievers will ever experience."
Wow. I had never really thought about it like that. For me, as a believer, this is as bad as it's gonna get. I may have suffering and pain here on earth - I may have a "truckload of suck" to have to sift through and deal with, but someday... someday...
What hope. What joy. What a shift in perspective.
Rejoicing in the Hope of Heaven,
