Hi, I'm Joni Eareckson Tada and I love thinking about heaven. If I thought my paralysis were eternally permanent, that would depress me! So, when my disability gets me down, I think about heaven. I tell my weary soul, “Joni, it is not always going to be this way. Heaven’s coming, right around the corner. Can you believe and hold onto God's grace?” And friend, you can console your own weary heart with thoughts of heaven, as well. Oh, don’t think it’s a cop-out, a way of escaping the harsh realities on earth. No, the Bible tells us in Colossians chapter 3, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” You know, as busy as we are, as much as the Gospel requires of us here on earth, we are to set our minds on things above. It’s a command! So, join me in that now and cultivate a heart for heaven.
