My earthbound mind that longs for Heaven can only imagine so much, but here are a few things I think those already there would tell us:
It’s all worth it.
Time is irrelevant, no one is in a hurry, everyone savors each eternal moment.
All earthly beauty is but a glimpse of here.
One precious treasure of the King is a bottle filled with the tears of His children.
There is an indescribably pleasant aroma permeating this place. It is your prayers, burning as incense before the throne.
All human synonyms for perfection and beauty combined only barely begin to describe the King of kings who reigns in power and majesty.
What confuses you there will be understood here, or its importance will fade to oblivion against the vastness of eternity and the perfection of the Savior.
What pain you endure there will be healed here, and what wrongs you have been done there will be vindicated here.
When you read your Bible, you are reading Him. He is the Word. Read it. Know Him.
All is as it should be here, except for your presence.
So when your time of earthly dwelling is complete, you have only to join us here. And we will have just joined the angels in song.
You must know, it is all so very much worth it. Press on.

Are you going to Heaven when you die? If you have not received Christ’s free gift of salvation, you aren’t. But know this verse: “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.” (Psalm 86:5 NAS)
I encourage you to look up these verses for yourself in an accurate translation, write them down, pray, and talk to a pastor from a Bible teaching church. If you have come to salvation, welcome to the family of God! You are in for the ride of your life!
