One Bad Night At

his home for us

 And He raised us up together with Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because we are] in Christ Jesus Ephesians 2:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever spent the night in a dive motel?

I have and boy it was a nightmare. When I was a tree planter we would sleep in tents six nights a week in the forest and come to town one night. That was our shift. When the university kids got a room all’s they did was have loud drunken parities and trash the rooms. There was no sleep that night and it seemed as if the night would never end. The next week I went to a motel that refused to accept tree planters. When it was explained to them all’s that was wanted was a quiet room for me to sleep in, they took a gamble and gave me a room. I did not let them down and enjoyed a fantastic nights sleep.

So too will it be when we are in Heaven.

The life we suffer here will seem like but a quick moment in time compared to the unimaginable love, joy and peace we will be blessed with as we continuously commune with Jesus and each other.

“From heaven even the most miserable life will look like one bad night at an inconvenient hotel.” — Teresa of Avila

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with the promise that when I depart this groaning earth I shall be in loving communion with You for an eternity. That magnificent experience there shall make all the worst living nightmares here on earth seem like just a bad nights dream to awaken to a wonderful world with You. I praise You in the name of He with who I relish walking and talking with throughout eternity Jesus Christ. Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
