Soon and very soon.

We've been singing the song "Soon" at church a lot recently, which blatantly speaks of heaven and seeing Christ one day.  I've often found I can't connect with songs like this, or yet, I choose not to connect with them simply because I find them uncomfortable.  As if the discussion of heaven takes things over the edge.  It's too much!  "Lord, you've pushed my faith just tooo far."  I'm thinking it might be time to consider a different perspective.  I don't want to obsess about heaven so much that I can't enjoy life on earth, but this song reminds me that at we must look forward at times to recongize what God has promised us.  My favorite verse, "Though I have not seen Him, my heart knows Him well," makes my eyes well up.  My heart, it does know Him well and that's beyond precious to me.
