My first thought as I woke up this morning was, “What day is it?!”
Happiness filled my heart as I realized it was my day off. I could go back to sleep. I had nothing on today’s calendar.
But today, I forgot.
I forgot I might see Him face to face.
Not the “him” I’m praying for, but the “Him” who has loved me longer than anyone else has.
I might see Him who loved me so much He took my punishment, and that’s why I don’t fear dying.
He loved me so much, He sacrificed everything, took rejection from His Father and followers, and endured pain and death.
He wants me where He is, so He’s preparing a place for me—a place with my name on it. A place where I can be with Him.
Today, I might see Him!
And you might too.
“I will come again and receive you to myself,
that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:3
