Don't you love this picture? This is a real tree house at Longwood Gardens. No one lives there ; it's just for our enjoyment. This was taken in April so we can see the beautiful weeping cherry tree next to it. It almost looks surreal.; As if it is not from this earth. It's funny how we can confuse reality with heavenly things or vice-versa.

I know you have heard people explain something as if it was out of this world, or say, "heaven can't be better than this"!  It is human to see only what's before you, but it is spiritual to see what is to come. If God pulled back the curtain between this world and the next, we would be very surprised!

God's goodness far exceeds what we know, because we don't always know all of the details. When we trust Him, "we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose." { Romans 8:28}  How do we know if we have been" called according to His purposes? Our desires line up with His word. We want what God wants, and we want others to know Him as we do.

Our job as christians is to bring Jesus to the lost, to be His hands and feet, and to live with His heart. This is heart-breaking, because His heart is broken for the lost, the sin, and destruction that people call their lives. He never intended for divorce, gender confusion,  and sickness to claim our bodies. When God breaks your heart, He resurrects us to His new life, and He is able to shine! We all go through hard times, but when He is in your life, it works for good!
