When We All Get To Heaven

Are you in a battle right now? Has this life defeated you? Left you worn and deflated?

So often our circumstances seem like the winner. Sick kids, stress at work, a house or car that keeps breaking through countless repairs, leaving us wondering how we’ll make it to our next paycheck. Friends that aren’t friendly. Doctor visits that take a turn for the worst, leaving us reeling. Circumstances can barge into any life and suck the joy right out faster than you can blink.

I am a worrier. I can let the circumstances of this world take over my heart and mind in an instant. But lately I’ve been reminding myself that this life is a journey… to home.

And circumstances are just a part of that journey, one that will end in victory.

Soon the traveling days are over…not a shadow, not a sigh. 

Not even a sigh. The circumstances that plague you on this day, in this moment, are temporary, friend! And guess who will get the victory in the end? You will, through Christ!

When we all see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory!

When we see Jesus, we won’t be thinking about sickness anymore. We won’t be thinking about money, status, or hurts. We’ll be singing and shouting in victory.

So while we walk this journey here, the one that’s leading us closer to Jesus, and closer to home, let’s choose to walk in joy no matter what our circumstances try to do to us. We know who the real Winner is. We know who the true Victor is, and He walks beside us. He’ll even carry us if we need Him to!

When we all get to heaven what a day or rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory!

  1. Such a beautiful, powerful song Paige. I have never heard this tune before, and absolutely love it.
    Circumstances can really pull us down, I appreciate what you shared. With the church role I have, it is almost an expectation to be strong all the time, but it is not always the case.. I am sure you feel the same way with your music ministry.
    Thank you Paige for this excellent post and for your friendship! 🙂

  3. WOW. Love the new tune. Sweet memories of my family singing this in the car when I was young. Love the words of encouragement-sometimes I so look forward to being there to just not be tired. Will be coming back to this one during those times!
