Heaven

Do you long for heaven? There are times when I feel an ache in my heart a longing to be with Him. It feels similar to when I was dating my husband. I was in Colorado and he was in California, but it could have been a world away and I would have felt the same. I wanted to be near him. I wanted to hear his voice, to hold his hand, go for long walks, have deep talks, and plan our future together.


This morning I was listening to Chris Rice and heard those familiar words and it caused a longing in my heart once again. I want to be near Him. I want to hear His voice, hold His hand, go for long walks, have deep talks and plan our future together.


May you long for Him today,

here are the lyrics that drew me into worship today:



How far are You? How close am I?

I know Your Words are true and I don't feel them inside

Still I believe You'll never leave
So where are You now?






You're all I have, You're all I know

Your breath is breathing in my soul

Still I am gasping, aching, asking

Where are you now?






'Cause I just want to be with You

I just want this waiting to be over

I just want to be with You

And it helps to know the Day is getting closer






Every minute takes an hour
Every inch feels like a mile
Till I won't have to imagine
And I finally get to see You smile




My journey's here, but my heart is There
So I dream and wait and keep the faith, while You prepare

Our destiny, till you come back for me

Oh please make it soon!






Cause I just want to be with You

I just want this waiting to be over

I just want to be with You

And it helps to know the Day is getting closer



Every minute takes an hour
Every inch feels like a mile
Till I won't have to imagine
And I finally get to see You smile.






holy experience

I'm almost the opposite.

I want heaven to be just like it is here.So I'm scared.Of heaven.Isn't that crazy?

...I'm working through it.I want to feel the way you do about it.

Thank you for sharing, I've not heard the song before.

Kathi... I'm right there with you. I am so grateful and thankful and enjoying every second, that I feel as close to Him as (almost!) possible, and I long for this to be the way it is always... minus the pain and death and suffering...

I don't feel afraid, but I am excited when I remember that He promised it will be better than anything, so I rest in that...

Love those lyrics, Amy~ Chris Rice is my absolute favorite, as anyone can see from my playlist! :D Thank you for sharing your heart... may we all long for heaven the way you do. xo
