The city does not need the sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is it lamp. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. Revelation 21:23, 25
Another good thing about Heaven: nobody will ever be late—because there won’t be time anymore. That concept is beyond me.
But it’s fun to play with.
I used to never be late, hate, hate, hated it. But my husband hates to waste that five minutes before we have to leave for somewhere. Yeah, you know what he uses it for. A ten minute task.
So I’m a little desensitized to it, but I still hate it.
What about waiting all day for someone who doesn’t show and doesn’t call to cut you loose to spend your day on something besides waiting, and you can’t get them on the phone? And what about waiting for computer repairs so you can post your blog on time? Or how about sitting forever on hold because it took too long to get to the (hopefully) right person and you can’t afford to hang up and start over?
Not so with You, Avi. When You say You’ll be here, You’re here. Anytime I call on You in prayer, You hear. And when it’s time to go home, I know You’ll be here, not one nanosecond late.
I can hardly wait.
In Your holy name, Amen.
