Let me take you on a journey which you will surely make. One day. You don't know when, but for certain you will make that journey. We may not know the day or the hour, and we may hope it is a long way off, but for certainty, one day, we will all make that journey.
The day we get to meet God. Face to face.
You ... and the Creator of the universe and all that is in it. Including you.
How will you feel that day?
Will you be filled with trepidation, your heart pounding, at a loss for words, not knowing what to say? Will you wonder and fear what He will say to you? And how you will react to His voice and to what He says?
Or will you be joyful? At last you're in Heaven. Are you so presumptuous and certain of your fate and destination? Will you give yourself a mental thumbs up that all is going to be well for you?
How will this feeling, justified as it may well be, affect your attitude, your demeanour and behaviour as you get to meet your Maker?
Would you still meet Him with trepidation or act as if meeting a long lost friend from school or the golf club?
How will your thankful heart proclaim your feelings? In silence? In song? In words? What would you say?
Will you say "thank you Lord" or will your mouth and tongue dry up in the presence of such Majesty of your Creator God?
Will your mind and your very being be able to comprehend the awesomeness of the situation and the beginning of a new journey into eternity?
For one certainty there is. We will all make that journey.
Are you ready for yours?
