I want to run on greener pastures
I want to dance on higher hills
I want to drink from sweeter waters
In the misty morning chill
And my soul is getting restless
For the place where I belong
I can’t wait to join the angels and sing my heaven song
I hear Your voice and I catch my breath
'Well done my child, enter in and rest'
Tears of joy roll down my cheek
It’s beautiful beyond my wildest dreams
Oh how I long for the day when I arrive home at the pearly gates of heaven. The day when I see my Savior face to face. Oh what a marvelous sight it will be. A place where all barriers are broken, where death is no longer imminent, where pain and sorrow no longer have a stronghold. A place where perfection is an understatement.
” The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.” Revelation 21:18-21
Revelation,such a promising book filled will wonders beyond belief. My mind cannot possibly wrap around the detailed imagery of this place. How beautiful, extravagant, and extraordinary this place must be. Oh, how I long to be where the Lord Almighty and the Lamb reside.
