The Beauty That God Provided us on Earth – The Bible Journey
April 29, 2021 – http://mynetzone.com/
Yesterday I had lunch with this huge tree in my view. I could not help but wonder how old this tree must be as the span of the tree seemed like 100 feet wide. You can judge its massive size by the kids in the picture.
Since I started painting pictures on canvas my perception of my surroundings has become much more vivid. The beauty that God provided us on Earth is amazing, but it doesn’t compare to what is waiting for us in Heaven. This world is not all there is. The best is yet to come.
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.
Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven.
We cannot imagine all that God has in store for us, both in this life and for eternity. He will create a new heaven and a new earth (Isaiah 65: 17; Revelation 21: 1), and we will live with him forever. Until then, his Holy Spirit comforts and guides us. Knowing the wonderful and eternal future that awaits us gives us hope and courage to press on in this life, to endure hardship, and to avoid giving in to temptation.
May this find you well and happy.
