The Lord dropped this book on me about 30 years ago. I have read it a few times, and have kept it. Yesterday, the Lord laid it on me to read again. Been about 10 years since I have. Started yesterday and I am about 1/2 way through it. When I was finishing one of the chapters today, this ending paragraph in the chapter called Visions of Heaven, piled on my heart.
I'll write the whole thing, but it begins with the picture and will be followed with the last portion of the paragraph. It touched my heart strongly today, and can't NOT share it around and about the world, because we won't live here forever and ever. That's what I count on.
Here it goes:
Our life, our work, our service, our hardships here are
only brief and passing incidents on the way to
the true life, the true city,
in the true Kingdom that cannot be shaken.
[The italic portion is the way my mind read it,
not the way the book was written.
Just written word by word.]
