As a girl I remember my parents playing a song about a man who goes to heaven and sees Jesus. He describes it like this: “Being with Him was to have everything I ever wanted, be everything I ever imagined, and arrive at everywhere I’d only dreamed of going.”

These words resonated so deeply with me. I was always a girl of longing – a romantic, emotional and passionate.

This beautiful description of Jesus moved me then and it moves me now. Every longing met; every loss, every tear, every disappointment met and filled when I see Jesus face to face.

Does this fill you with hope as it does me?


“Every longing met; every loss, every tear, every disappointment met and filled when I see Jesus face to face.”

1 John 3:2

 “Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.”
