Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. – John 14:1-3
The take away from the post “Eternal Paradise” is that we should patiently fulfill our purpose on earth knowing that God has a long term plan. The world can be a very discouraging place with a lot of negative things building on the inside like fear, frustration, and anxiety.
Most of these negatives are the result of pursuing material things which are short term but the great victory in life is putting off the earthly rewards for the long term eternal rewards. Take inspiration from the song I can only imagine by MercyMe.
