Are You Heaven Bound?

So how does one prepare for heaven while still living here on earth?

It’s important for one to keep their feet on the ground and yet, at times, one’s head is apt to be “in the clouds!” However, one need not be so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good. Actually it’s the reverse: When one is heavenly-minded, they are more useful to God here on earth! It’s all in perspective my friend, it’s all in perspective! So what changes our perspective from being worldly- minded to being heaven bound?
It’s that daily “gentle soaking” in God’s Word. As one soaks in His Word, the dark stains are slowly removed. His Word permeates into the dark recesses of the mind, training and preparing one for that next stop – heaven!

So where does one begin? The Book of John is a good place to begin to soak! Actually any of the Gospel books [Matthew, Mark, Luke and John] will lighten, even change that worldly-minded perspective. As one reads His powerful Word there seems to be only one perspective — eternity. According to Jesus, what we do here, with our attire [our earthly-mind perspective], counts in the world yet to come! This is our “Dress Rehearsal!”

As we embrace eternity and soak in His light – our earthly-minded perspective is radically transformed! People, places and things are seen in a whole different light – the light of heaven!

”The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight to life. Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb." Psalm 19:7-10

Enjoy soaking in His Word today!


This “gentle soaking” may change your perspective as well as your destination – forever!

Bound for Heaven – Good Times, nothing but Good Times, can’t wait – to see you there!
