Heaven... I'm In Heaven...
(This giveaway is now ended. Thanks!)
Heaven, ever wonder about it? I do! My mind has always been filled with thoughts of it, as it should be. It's the final trip we'll ever take, and it's one that will be without any hitches. No reservations missing when you get there because 1 Peter 1:4 says, "...kept in heaven for you" (if we are His, and it's so simple to be: just click on this LINK and you will learn all about how to become a child of God, bound for eternal bliss in heaven), and no rain to ruin the fun, and nothing to be scared of. You won't need traveler's checks in heaven!
When Superman and I are planning a trip, or I'm just dreaming about one, brochures are a fun must. They tell me everything I want to know about my upcoming destination. Well, the generous people at Moody Press sent me another book to read and write about (yay and thank you!). This book, Heaven Revealed, by Paul Enns, it's like one of those brochures! With Scripture, he gives us beautiful pictures of our eternal destination. It's all too exciting!
Also, there was one thing I'd never quite been able to settle in my braino, and that's the sting of death. 1 Corinthians 15:55 says, "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?" Well, in Paul's book is a chapter on the transition to heaven. His words make death seem like just another walk in the park, except you'll be stepping into heaven. Nothing to be scared of at all, but something to be excitedly anticipating. Death opens the door to heaven, and at the same time, closes it to the earthly life - forever and ever. Amen! :)
I love this book. Reading about heaven gives me butterflies in my stomach, like when I know I get to go to Disneyland... Ummmm... with the exception that HEAVEN IS DEFINITELY THE HAPPIEST PLACE anywhere!!!!
Anyhoo, Moody Press again sent me TWO BOOKS! One for me, one for YOU! Please leave me a comment and I will enter you in the drawing for it!!!! The winner will be announced Friday morning, April 1st... no fooling!!! :)
