There are many rooms

(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, There are many rooms
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?

“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!

(Mary Winslow)

Without Jesus life would be an aching void,
earth a wilderness of woe and sorrow! He
can transform this wilderness into a little
heaven, making it radiant with His presence!
What must heaven itself be!

I shall soon exchange earth for heaven, and
finally close my eyes, when I shall re-open
them in glory. Oh, to be there! Oh, to see
Jesus face to face! To behold Him whom my
soul loves, and be with Him for ever! But a
little while,
and I am there!
