Contemplating the Face of God
I was talking with someone the other day and was reminded of a phenomenon God has graced us with. It has to do with Heaven and our children. It is said that when you make it to the pearly gates (if God has so had mercy) that we will forever contemplate the face of God. I personally have always kinda struggled with this concept, thinking, "I am just going to stare into His face for all eternity? Really?" And then I had this sweet baby boy, who I could just look at all day long. I never get bored staring at him and each moment I do flies by so quickly, making time very different now. So, this is what was explained to me the other day: Heaven will be much like staring into the eyes of your child... the closest we can come here on earth to contemplating the face of God. Now, I can't wait. The motivation to get there is even greater. God has a tendency to do that to us... He gives us gifts in which we just can't help but love Him more. He will never let us outdo Him in generosity.
