On her blog, Heading Home, Kate Moatung writes about the joy God prepares for us:
I reluctantly told them it was almost time to go, but promised I would wait until they had finished digging the final channel of water.
My daughter immediately said, “Well, we won’t get to enjoy it, but maybe the next people who come will be able to!” She then proceeded to etch into the sand with her fingertips, a message at the entrance to their sand compound:
“For your joy.”
I wished I’d brought my camera.
As I looked at the sand-carved letters, it struck me right away that she didn’t write, “For your enjoyment,” but rather, “For your joy.”
And I thought about how the Lord has done the very same thing.
He has constructed an intricate, elaborate creation for our joy.
Have you ever thought about that?
And He didn’t stop there. Not only did He create this universe for our joy, but He has prepared an even greater place, eternity itself, for the forever joy of those who love Him.
