Do you ever think about what heaven will be like? I imagine glorious music, pearly gates, streets of gold, incredible brightness, and overwhelming joy.
As much as I hate the idea of death and dying, my soul desires the comforts and coziness of “going home.” I long to see lost loved ones and meet this great cloud of witnesses. I’m hoping it will be so amazingly magnificent that I can’t even begin to describe it.
And yet several musicians have put words to it…
Audio Adrenaline’s take in Big House is that heaven is a “Big, big house with lots and lots of rooms. A big, big table with lots and lots of food. A big, big yard, where we can play football.”
MercyMe’s song Finally Home claims, “I’m gonna wrap my arms around my Daddy’s neck and tell him that I’ve missed him…When I finally make it home.”
I Can Only Imagine by MercyMe says, “Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel? Will I dance for You Jesus, or in awe of You be still? Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall? Will I sing Hallelujah? Will I be able to speak at all? I can only imagine.”
Sara Groves sings in What Do I Know, “I don’t know that there are harps in heaven or the process for earning your wings. I don’t know of bright lights at the end of tunnels or any of these things. But I know that to be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord. And what I know of Him, that must be very good.”
I can only imagine how awesome it will be when I’m finally home to the Big House in heaven. But, then again, what do I know? 😉
