"And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, 'Behold, the dwelling of God is with men.'" —Revelation 21:2–3
Dear Lord, it is hard to fathom a place where I will no longer experience any pain, disappointment, frustration, or loss. My heart will be fully satisfied in your presence in my heavenly homeland. I know that my life here and now is meant to prepare me for the next. Help me to make the most of the time I have left to grow in generosity and greatness of soul.
