Imagine the Happiest You've Ever Been...There is Better Coming!

“The most rapturous delights you have ever had — in the beauty of a landscape, or in the pleasure of food, or in the fulfillment of a loving embrace — are like dewdrops compared to the bottomless ocean of joy that it will be to see God face-to-face (1 John 3:1–3). That is what we are in for, nothing less. And according to the Bible, that glorious beauty, and our enjoyment of it, has been immeasurably enhanced by Christ’s redemption of us from evil and death.” Tim Keller Walking with God through Pain and Suffering

Psalm 138:6-8 
Though the Lord be high,
yet hath he respect unto the lowly: 
but the proud he knoweth afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
thou wilt revive me:
thou shalt stretch forth thine hand a
gainst the wrath of mine enemies,
and thy right hand shall save me.
Lord will perfect that which concerneth me:
thy mercy, O 
Lord, endureth for ever:
forsake not the works of thine own hands.
