A glimpse of heaven

Poem : Glimpse

Scripture : Ezekiel 1:1-28


God shared glimpses of heaven a few times to man
Words can’t begin to describe the sight

It’s so amazing, we fall to our knees in worship
There are angels singing

Colors, sights and sounds
All senses magnified beyond description

One day we will be fully immersed
Surrounded by God’s glory

His Prophets were his messengers
They were His voice to His chosen people

They were faithful and fully devoted
Trying to serve the best they knew how

Listening for direction
Listening for guidance

God calls his children to serve
We all are given heavenly gifts

Some teach, some pray
Some lead, some follow

Others listen in various ways
There are glimpses of heaven on earth

There is nothing more special
Than listening to young children

Recite and learn Gods word
They are focused on nothing else

For a short time, all they are focused on
Is reciting verses from the bible

Learning Jesus Christ came from heaven
To die on a cross and save everyone

Having a small soft voice recite this gift
Is priceless and beyond measure

God gives us glimpses from heaven
This is just one example

The next time you are having a bad day
Remember that soft voice saying God’s word


Story behind the poem

I was working a normal mid-week children’s ministry.  They run the program in three 30 minute sessions.  One of the sessions had 7 and 8-year-old (1st and 2nd grade) recite, memorize verses.  Close your eyes, block everything and imagine a young person with a small soft voice reciting John 3:16.  Then explain what it really means, it gives me cold chills.  All I can describe is a “glimpse from heaven”.  God provides a few examples in scripture displaying the “Glory of the Lord”.   If you are having a bad day, close your eyes and picture a small soft voice reciting Gods word.
