Sand Castles and Sea Shells
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)
Worldwide, people love to vacation at the beach. On the beach, we can leave our shoes at the door and let the sand rub away our roughness. The saltwater restores our spirits as we pass our days building sandcastles, digging large holes, catching blue crab, and watching dolphin. Through sunsets and shells, footprints and kite-flying, we experience God’s pleasure.
God has planted in each of us the longing for a better place than this earth. He made us that way for a reason. If we wanted to stay in the frayed chaos of life as most of us know it, we would have no need of heaven. We live our busy lives in chaos many times because we are searching for a solution for our restlessness.
Heaven is the place that we thirst for. To me, beach days suggest the beauty, wholeness, and adventure we will experience for eternity in God’s presence. God is preparing a place for each of us where every longing and desire will be satisfied.
God is preparing our place in heaven.
