Will our time in Heaven be like a museum tour of memories? “You can’t take it with you” – but can you look at it from above? Good question.
I have memories now – and some of my kids toys and my old toy box. And photos – pages and pages of photos. I work really hard in my house cleaning – on occasion – actually clean spaces become like museum areas – “DON’T TOUCH THIS”… I am rearranging a room that used to be filled with kids things and now is a dumping zone. I used to have lots of stuff here but it is getting quieter and quieter as they age. I don’t mind- that’s actually good – and I am getting busier and busier as I age and thus that is why I clean less and less – that’s my excuse.
Now instead of just my museum spaces, I also enjoy my workstation workrooms and workshops – like my kitchen or my laundry room. I just tore apart my dryer – and put it back together – I don’t need fancy – I just need what I have to work.
What about Heaven? Have you thought about Heaven and what you will do there? Will it be a museum-like space and memories that are in clouds for online uploaded storage? Will it instead be like workshops for learning about history? Will it be workrooms for hammering out relationships that went awry on Earth? Will there be waiting rooms for your great great great great great great grandparents to come meet you? Will it be filled with more people than you could imagine? Well – maybe ALL these things – maybe that is why there is the advantage of the Millennium’s 1000 years AND THEN Eternity after that – with a new Heaven and New Earth – a NEW CITY prepared for us where we will live with the Lord FOREVER.
Will our time in Heaven be like a museum tour of memories?
IN heaven will we remember the good things? I’m sure!
Will we remember bad memories, or will they just fade away compared to the glory of the Lord? I bet they fade, how could they not…
When all is finally settled into new Jerusalem, how will our current memories stack up? Perhaps those memories will become building bridges of reconciliation to all those we knew and will get to know.
Either way, I am glad I have my ticket in Jesus. Millennium, Here I come!
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life. Revelation 22:17
