Better things in store for us

(adapted from Mary Winslow‘s, “Heaven Opened”)

What a mercy that there are better things in
store for us than this poor world could give!

Who that knows the truth experimentally
would wish to live in this base world one
moment longer than he could help it.

But what must that place be which
infinite love has prepared for us!

“There are many rooms in My Father’s home,
and I am going to prepare a place for you.
When everything is ready, I will come and
get you, so that you will always be with Me
where I am.”

Does it not appear as though Jesus could
not enjoy heaven itself to the full if all His
redeemed ones were not there?
Better things in store for us
“Father, I want those you have given Me to
be with Me where I am, and to see My glory.”

To be with Jesus! One moment of
this is worth ten thousand worlds!

(Letters of John Newton)

Trials no less than comforts–are the tokens of God’s love! All is regulated by infinite wisdom. You will find cause to praise Him even for the severe afflictions.

Cisterns must be broken–but the fountain of living waters is always full and always flowing!

Gourds must wither–but the tree of life has shade and fruit sufficient for us all, and at all times!

“Trials make the promise sweet,
and give new life to prayer;
Trials bring me to His feet,
Lay me low and keep me there!”
