That type of deep is wonderful – even if we cannot completely grasp it – and it comforts us. But some things that are really deep (as in profound or intense) can have a different effect. I have been in a Bible study this semester studying the “Mysteries of Heaven.” It has been an interesting look at some of the glimpses about Heaven revealed in the Word. And there are only glimpses. There is simply much more that we do not know, or understand, about Heaven than we do know. Or that God tells us.
This can be troubling even causing anxiety for some. It can be frustrating and I have seen the lack of details and definitive answers lead to fear and even an occasional argument. However, the glimpses that we have been given are not to confuse us but to excite us. To create a longing and to keep our hearts turned towards Heaven. Without a doubt, the beauty, the wonder and all that Heaven and eternity will be is much more than we can understand or appreciate. It is (beyond) deep. But we can be sure of the truth that it will be more than we ever imagine. We will not be disappointed. Just as I am trying to let the deep truth of God’s love wash over me…..I can be confident that when the deep mysteries of Heaven are revealed, it will be amazing!
My (not so deep) thoughts on the prompt – DEEP – for this week’s Five Minute Friday. Have a wonderful weekend!
