Apart from meeting Jesus, who is the person in the Bible that you would most like to meet in heaven?
The Biblical character I will be most anxious to meet in heaven will be the Apostle Paul. His seemingly never ending struggles, his passion to reach so many with the message of Christ, makes me seem so small at times.
Yes, we all have our own stories to tell and I can share some that would take all day, but hearing of my desperate situations will most likely not make yours any easier.
But there is one desperate situation that grabbed hold of someone that certainly has had an impact. It is a situation told in Psalm 77.
1 I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not:
my soul refused to be comforted.
3 I remembered God, and was troubled:
I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
4 Thou hold mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
6 I call to remembrance my song in the night:
I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
7 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? Does his promise fail for evermore?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? has he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
10 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
But it all takes a turn in verse 10!
Asaph recalls God's great works! His thoughts now turn to His love and all the great things done by God in the past, His comfort, faithfulness and His mercy.
Yes, we all have desperate situations in this life and often we are left asking, "Why?" But like Asaph, we can remember our God loves us and the gift of salvation He gives through Jesus.
Wow, knowing this we can rest in our situation, knowing He is there and He knows, and He feels our pain. That in itself is comforting.
No matter what your circumstance, there is comfort in worship, praise, prayer and being with other women of faith.
But remember, we will be worshipping, praising and will be together in heaven one day for eternity - all this will be done in heaven.
The one thing we will not do in heaven is reach the lost.
It will be too late. So do not focus on your situation too long, focus on those who need to know and find comfort in the arms of Jesus.
Use your circumstance to share how Jesus can cleanse and fill a life with comfort. Don't waste time on the trial, seek out a soul.
