Well, let me share.
I was standing in the back yard and I said: “I love this place.” And no voice did I hear but gently on the screen of mind came this: “If you think you love this place, just wait till you get home.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV) 9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” source
Did the Holy Spirit of GOD speak those words to me this morning or was it just me – wishful thinking? The day will come that I will know but until then Scripture says it’s true.
John 14:2 (TLV) 2 In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? source
Perhaps you would take a moment or two and allow Him to reveal from His Word what He has prepared for you.

Does death ever trouble you? I mean that last breath of earthly oxygen? I mean you have not died before, right? Do you know with certainty what to expect when you die?
The passages we are sharing today are found in John 14 and it begins this way:
“Do not let your heart be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me. SOURCE
So what were they troubled about? Perhaps many things but particularly separation from JESUS. At this setting, they were in the Upper Room. They had finished their last Passover meal with JESUS, He had washed their feet and He was continuing to prepare them for His imminent death.
And He tells them to let not their hearts be troubled. And the way to do that was and is TRUST. Trust the FATHER. Trust JESUS. Trust the HOLY SPIRIT. Trust the ONE GOD of the Bible.
How do you know there is a Heaven? I mean do you really know there is a heaven – we have not been there yet? Do such questions ever sneak into your thoughts? Even just briefly?
This is how I send them packing!
2 In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to Myself, so that where I am you may also be. SOURCE
Simple! JESUS said so. What more do I need?
Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people. This makes my soul smile!
