Matthew 5:12a “Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven…”
The Upsides-Down Funnel!
What we see ending
is this life’s pretense
at the end of the funnel
which GOD’s own hands formed.
That rapturous instant
appears as a sliver;
as if Breath were no more.
But! It’s not final nor
finished for us!
There’s no first nor a second
“Big Bang” — to end all!
So gaze through HIS funnel
whose endless expanse
shows the wide open
we’ll live forever!
As HIServant reminded to that HE’s coming to take us from the narrow perspective we have to the endless view in Glory,
Devotional: Hebrews 11:16 “Instead, they were longing for a better country — a heavenly one. Therefore GOD is not ashamed to be called their GOD, for HE has prepared a city for them.”
We always position a funnel for use in the same way. Wide open top, very narrow bottom.
But being here on earth looking up, we have such a narrow view. We can’t yet see into Glory but we have descriptions of its splendor and expanse!
So while it may surely seem that it’s all ending at the bottom of Life’s funnel here, I remind us all of another way!
“Christian, anticipate heaven…within little time you will be rid of all your trials and your troubles.” – C.H. Spurgeon.
“My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.” Billy Graham
So keep looking up in prayer and with great expectation…for the “top” of HIS funnel is eternally wide where we’ll soar forever free!
Amen and amen!
