When we all get to Heaven, Softly and Tenderly

Dear Friends,

Thanks for stopping by. Thanks again for all your prayers and encouragements.

I am so thankful that tomorrow is the Lord's day.

The Lord's day is an emblem of that eternal rest that we shall enjoy one day in eternity when the Lord calls us home.

There we shall be able to worship Him everyday, enjoy His love and fellowship without the hindrance of sins and remaining corruptions. There will be no more tears, sicknesses, disappointments, death, etc.

How I long for that day! But I know our Lord wants me here still to serve Him and therefore I must wait patiently until He calls me home :-)

Meanwhile, I pray that He will enable me to serve Him cheerfully and faithfully in whatever He wants me to do.

Hope these 2 hymns "When we all get to Heaven" and "Softly and Tenderly" encourage our hearts as we press on in this pilgrim journey with the joyful anticipation that if we have truly trusted in our Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord, one day we shall get to Heaven and enjoy His love and fellowship forever because of what He has done on the cross for us. Meanwhile, He bids us daily to come unto Him and find rest in Him because He cares for us, He will never leave us nor forsake us and His grace is sufficient for us.



When We All Get To Heaven

Sing the wondrous love of Jesus,
Sing His mercy and His grace.
In the mansions bright and bless├Ęd
He’ll prepare for us a place.

Refrain

When we all get to Heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We’ll sing and shout the victory!

While we walk the pilgrim pathway,
Clouds will overspread the sky;
But when traveling days are over,
Not a shadow, not a sigh.

Refrain

Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving every day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.

Refrain

Onward to the prize before us!
Soon His beauty we’ll behold;
Soon the pearly gates will open;
We shall tread the streets of gold.

Refrain





May the Lord grant you a restful weekend and spiritually refreshing Lord's day.

Take care!

Those are 2 great hymns, Nancie! Another one in the same theme that I enjoy is, "What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see. When I look upon His face, the one who saved me by His grace. When He takes me by the hand, and leads me to the Promised Land. What a day, glorious day, that will be."

I sure look forward to the rapture. I do live with the expectancy that He will return at any moment. I look forward to meeting you in Heaven, where we can worship Jesus together forever.

Blessings on you. May you throughly enjoy the gathering of God's people in His house this Sunday.

Softly and Tenderly is one of those hymns that inspires me along the way of my journey. As it crescendos into "You who are weary come home" my heart just resonates from within. Blessings.

Nancie,

I grew up with these songs! They have special meaning!

Won't it be wonderful when we are all in Heaven. No more problems, tears, sickness. It will be great.

Hope you had a great rest!

Love,
Cheryl

Blessings Nancie...I so enjoyed you posting!!! I can't wait til I meet the Lord & you in Heaven! Great hymns to enjoy! Thanks for the encouragement! I'm feeling weary so I must go rest, had migraine most of the day! You did not link to TSMSS so you want to link to SSSSS?
I understand that you probably did not so as not to have to visit so many...but they don't have that many today. I linked and even some friends have not come by, I guess I trust Jesus to bring who He wants & He knows what I can handle! I did sign up today & yesterday,had only 7 today & 9 yesterday, that's about all I can handle right now! I'm still praying,can you feel His power...I will believe that you just love these hymns because otherwise with these sentiments I might think you were depressed & longing for another place. I pray God holds you & keeps you & you are filled up & strengthened at church & in His Presence! Love & Hugs((U))

Have a blessed week!
