The past two days I've been thinking about heaven in terms of what won't be around the corner.
I have four healthy children...today. I have no cancer (that I know of)...today. My bills are paid...today. But, people, I'm quite honestly afraid of what can happen in this life.
I get sovereignty. I understand there is design in trials. I know that trials shake us like you'd shake off a welcome mat to get the dirt out. I need to be shaken...I know that. But grief and pain totally suck and I don't look forward to it. I'm afraid of fiery trials and deep waters.
They will come. He will carry me.
I'm just thinking about how awesome it will be in heaven where trials and fear are far, far behind.
