Getting Your Mind on the Hereafter

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and hardships are God's way of helping me get my mind on the hereafter. And I don’t mean hereafter as a death wish or an escape from reality; I mean hereafter as the true reality. And nothing beats rehearsing a few time-honored Scriptures if you want to put reality into a heavenly perspective. Like, every time my corset digs in my side, or I'm faced with a 4-week stint in bed, I look beyond the negatives and see the positives: I recall that pilgrims aren’t supposed to feel at home on earth; I set my heart and mind on things above and dream of the day I'll see my Bridegroom; I remember the promise of a new body, a new heart and mind. And I think about the crowns I'll be able to cast at Jesus’ feet. These things make up the soon and coming reality, so today, get your mind on the hereafter. The soul that mounts up to heaven’s kingdom cannot fail to triumph!
