“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” -Colossians 3:15
There is a way to completely just open up heaven in your life, to completely experience everything that heaven has to offer, and it’s one word: gratitude. Regular practices of gratitude are proved, both biblically and scientifically, to completely fill your heart with happiness and joy. In heaven there is no lack and no insufficiency: nobody’s hungry, dying, crying, or bored. In heaven, people are overwhelmed with joy, and that feeling is available to you right now. The way to completely open up your heart to the amazing things that heaven has to offer is to be a grateful, thankful person. Go out of your way to thank people and thank God. Think about the tremendously great things that you have in your life today, in spite of all the things that you’re missing.
PRAYER: Thank you, God, for all the blessings. Help me practice gratitude so I can receive the joy of heaven.
REFLECTION: Tell someone you’re grateful for them this week and catch a glimpse of heaven.
