When we get busy we still have priorities of what must be done and what can wait until later. I have been redoing those a bit lately. For me – dusting can always wait! I’ll still tackle cat hair but not window sills.
Lately I’m getting back to that priority of dreaming with God of what the next chapter will look like as we move forward.
For instance, we know that when these bodies of ours are taken down like tents and folded away, they will be replaced by resurrection bodies in heaven—God-made, not handmade—and we’ll never have to relocate our “tents” again. Sometimes we can hardly wait to move—and so we cry out in frustration. Compared to what’s coming, living conditions around here seem like a stopover in an unfurnished shack, and we’re tired of it! We’ve been given a glimpse of the real thing, our true home, our resurrection bodies! The Spirit of God whets our appetite by giving us a taste of what’s ahead. He puts a little of heaven in our hearts so that we’ll never settle for less. 2 Corinthians 5:1-5
