Imagining Our Departure =)

Good Tuesday Everyone! 

I woke up this morning thinking about what it’s going to be like in that exact moment I cross over the threshold of time and eternity. Have you ever thought about this… I mean, really thought about this?

It’s pretty wild to IMAGINE how it will go down. Not how we will die or when we will die… but how a person actually exits this earth to enter into heaven.

I laid there in my bed… closed my eyes and ears in order to block off two of the physical senses God gave me for maintaining contact with this physical world. There in the darkness and in the quiet, I became increasingly attuned to the REAL ME… the SPIRIT PERSON inside of this curly headed pod everyone calls Chuck.   

With our five physical senses, we have access to this PHYSICAL world. Sometimes, these physical senses distract humans from accessing their spiritual self. This is why people usually close their eyes when kissing… to shut off the sight sense in order to heighten the feel sense, or to access the REAL PERSON inside of the physical body. 

As we leave this earth, we will peel off this human pod much like a butterfly breaks out of her cacoon. In that exact moment… our access to this physical world will slowly fade away… our senses will be turned off… and our human SPIRIT will step right out of its physical house and into eternity without missing a beat! 

2 Corinthians 5:6-9  So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as WE LIVE IN THESE BODIES we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing. (we are supposed to live like this) Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be AWAY from these earthly bodies, FOR THEN we will be at home with the Lord. So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though OUTWARDLY we are wasting away, yet INWARDLY we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is SEEN, but on what is UNSEEN. For what is seen is TEMPORARY, but what is unseen is ETERNAL.

There is more to life than meets eye… or the ear… or the nose… or the taste… or the feel. This earth is the environment for the human body. The human body is the medium through which the HUMAN SPIRIT has expression in this physical earth. And these are both temporary… they will not last forever. 

Life here on earth is temporal. Become more spiritual… more attuned to the REAL YOU… more aware of God. Walk with God… know him… love him… serve him… and enjoy him! Then in that day, when you shall cross over… it shall be no strange experience when the physical senses shall slowly fade away… and you are left with nothing except the REAL YOU… to break out into what is next! And what a glorious day this shall be for us all!

Pretty DEEP blog today huh? I hope it adds tremendous value to your amazing lives! We love you all… praying that your day is most outstanding!

  1. LOVE the depth of this blog – isn’t it awesome to have those times when we commune with our Lord and actually have that desire to be wth Him? I love thinking about what it will be like to not have the distractions that draw us away from His glory. Thanks once again, Chuck, for making those in the blog world think about what God really created us for – to fellowship with Him…what a glorious day that will be when we leave this earthly home and take our place in the heavenlies!! ABSOLUTELY GLORIOUS!!!! I pray in advance of that moment that those left here do not grieve for me – as I will be where I was created to be! OK, I could go on & on with this. Love you in Christ – have a day blessed to overflowing my brother.
