25 Things You Won't Find in Heaven

When I saw the title, "25 Things You Won't Find in Heaven," on a blogpost by Rebecca Barlow Jordan* it sparked my interest. Her post inspired me to make my own list starting with the things that have adversely affected me the most. There are obviously more than 25 and your top 25 things will be different than mine. The exercise of thinking of my own list invoked praise to our Father in heaven. Yay God! He is coming to rescue us believers and bring us home to this wonderful place called heaven and I can't wait! "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him-but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit" (1 Corinthians 2:9-10). Thank you for your Spirit, Lord, that deposits the hope of heaven in our hearts! We can make it through all of this junk until you come and get us or you take us home to heaven through death. Amen.

Here is my list:

1. No Enabling

2. No Co-dependency

3. No Alcohol

4. No Drugs-illegal or legit

5. No Murder

6. No Pride

7. No Secrets

8. No Triangulation

9. N0 Manipulation/Control/Guilt Trips

10. No Illness, especially cancer, heart disease, and diabetes

11. No Surgeries

12. No Disabilities/Defects

13. No Injustice

14. No Separation

15. No Death

16. No Time Limits

17. No Pollution

18. No Wars/Destruction

19. No Pain

20. No Sadness

21. No Abuse, Physical, Emotional, or Spiritual

22. No Natural Disasters

23. No Unemployment

24. No Taxes

25. No Crime

Why don't you make your own list today?
