From Mia’s heart….
Passion. Have you ever become so passionate about something that it seems to disrupt your whole being? Then those around you have to start hearing about it… and if it all goes well, you stir up a passion in them! That’s all you want to talk about, think about…you become thirstier and thirstier and never become satisfied. That’s the way I have felt about Heaven for over four years! I imagine it, I read everything I can about it. I pray and pray that I can see just a glimpse of Heaven. I look for every sign that points to the time of our rapture. I can’t wait to get there! And the thing is, I just get more and more stirred up in my spirit. I get more and more excited…which brings me to my favorite verses:
Colossians 3:1-4 (NKJV)
“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Sometimes we can’t explain where our passion comes from; however, I can explain mine. On September 8, 2010 my daughter, Bree, at the age of 20, went to sleep and never woke up. Jesus just pulled her up to Heaven. Shock went through our whole family—my husband, kids, parents, Bree’s aunts, uncles and cousins, friends…just about everyone who knew her was shocked. Bree loved the LORD. She was a SUPER kid…athletic, intelligent, beautiful and above all, she LOVED Jesus. Her cousins would just follow her around because she was older, yes, but mainly because she loved them so much and they could feel it. My husband and I have read her journals and letters to Jesus over and over these past several years….and there is one thing we know for absolute certainty….Bree, our precious, precious daughter, is in Heaven! How do we KNOW that? Because she truly believed in Jesus and what He did for her on the cross.
This is a picture of my sweet daughter, Bree.
I ache to see her again, hold her and just tell her how much I love her. But this heartache and pain has been such a blessing, as it has awakened my spirit and opened my eyes. Heaven is real! Bree is more alive now than ever! It’s just a thin veil that separates us from a world we can’t physically see, hear or touch unless the Lord allows it. And sometimes He does. I believe that those on the other side of the veil see us clearly, and are even cheering us on in life. That’s another blog post in itself.
This all brings me to a point. My kids have been asking me to start a blog, and I’ve even received a prophecy that I would be blogging. Someday. I must admit that after years of ignoring these signs, I finally was convinced by my persistent daughter and her husband, Christy and Andrew to just write “something.” Sooo, the ice has been broken and the adventure begins! Thanks for listening… All glory be to God Almighty!
