Joy Ahead, by ShepherdFarmerGeek

We’ve often been encouraged to look forward to the “joys” of Heaven, the final Home to all who follow Yeshua the Messiah. And we’ve been told that this joy will help get us through the trials and struggles of life.

While my prepping efforts have been to not arrive there unnecessarily early, I still ponder what lies ahead. One day last week I considered this “joy” and wanted to share my brief thoughts. The joy of Heaven is:

“Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.”

– Psalm 30:5

“…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

– Hebrews 12:2

Hard times ahead? Sure. But after that comes the Morning. Never forget. Never forget!

Trust God, and be prepared. We can do both.

Dear Shepherd Farmer Geek,

Thank you for writing this. I too, have been thinking a lot lately about heaven, but had not thought of the joy we will be experiencing in all of those areas you mentioned. I’ve been thinking more of the it bringing to us the release from the spiritual battles have to wage daily against the Accuser of the brethren and from all of the evil we are bombarded with in this world . Thinking more of the perfect peace we will have.

You article brought much comfort and joy to my heart. Thanks again for writing it.

Blessings Lily,

Thanks so much ShepherdFarmer. It’s easy to get discouraged, your words of hope are good medicine. We can hardly imagine the glories of Heaven, I think it’s beyond our comprehension, what a blessed hope it is! Nothing of this world can harm us, this is a temporary existence and eternity will be without end. It’s hard for me to fathom, but thankfully I believe and my faith sustains me as this world becomes more precarious with each passing day. God Bless you, I’ll see you there.
