Have you ever said that? I wish this moment would never end! I remember thinking that from my early childhood till the present. On a beautiful cool summer morning in Pennsylvania running outside to play, I remember thinking, I wish it could always be like this.
At about twelve years of age our family went to Sea Isle City, New Jersey for the first time. For me, seeing the ocean was love at first sight. From then on, being at the beach was a moment I wish would never end.
Gayle and I have had times now living in Florida, where we are at some beautiful location, enjoying dinner, outdoors, palm trees, sunsets, live music, light breeze and I wish the moment would never end.
The problem is not only do the wonderful moments end too quickly, so do the weeks, months and years! I honestly have to pinch myself at times when I think about how in the world I could be sixty years old already!
Do you honestly think anything on earth would be better than heaven? What if all the moments we wish would never end are simply appetizers for what the main course in eternity will be? Those paradise moments are all about being in a beautiful setting and being connected to someone or several others having a good time.
Eye has not seen nor ear heard what the Lord has prepared for those who love Him! But the Spirit reveals them to us. Maybe one way the Spirit reveals those things to us is through the highlight moments here on earth! Something to ponder!
