A Perfect World

We grow weary in our present bodies,
and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing.
2 Corinthians 5:2, New Living Translation

I'm a perfectionist at heart. I like the flawlessness of new things.

For instance, I bought a new car for the first time in 13 years. I love all the bells and whistles, the new smell and the spotless exterior and interior.

But perfection in this world doesn't last long.

After three months, a rock hit the windshield and cracked it.

Sometime, unknown to me, I must have hit a curb or scraped the wheel against something. Now the beautiful shiny wheel well sports a six-inch scratch.

Life happens. The car doesn't stay spotless.

And neither do we. We grow weary. We age. We get sick. We get knocked around and come home with bruises, broken bones and broken spirits sometimes.

However, when we put our faith in Jesus, we know the best is yet to come.

Matthew 5:48 tells us our Heavenly Father is perfect.

I Corinthians 13:10 talks of a time when perfection will come and all things imperfect and incomplete will end.

That's a comforting thought to me.

No matter what troubles, imperfections and trials we face in this life, our life with Jesus in heaven will be perfect.

Do you know for sure that you will spend eternity in heaven? 

You don't have to guess. You can know for sure. Find out here.

Maybe you already know heaven is your eternal home. But that seems like such a long time away. You want help here and now. I know. I do too.

Try meditating on scriptures about heaven. Listen to praise songs about God's power.

Cognitive therapists tell us that our thoughts create our feelings and then lead to action.

We practice these techniques a lot in our house because we are a family of worriers. I hope you find them helpful too.

Lord, help us take comfort in your promises.
