"To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Better than fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of any, or all earthly friends. These are but shadows; but the enjoyment of God is the substance. These are but scattered beams; but God is the sun. These are but streams; but God is the fountain. These are but drops, but God is the ocean."       
                 - Jonathan Edwards

I found this quote on one of the many blogs I keep up with. Reading it was like a breath of fresh air. 
Heaven is not something we can comprehend with our finite minds, but Jonathan Edwards paints a beautiful picture of how much better heaven will be compared to anything else this world offers. 

Why then do we get so wrapped up in this world? Why does my little heart worry so much? 
My life is no longer my own. I am a child of the one true King and He is holding me in his hands. I am not to fear!
It's time to keep my eyes on the prize- Christ. To let nothing in this world distract me or bring me down. For one day I will walk with Jesus and I will be complete. 

"Theses are but a shadow of the things to come; the reality however is found in Christ." Colossians 2:17

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
