This is somewhat related to the question, "What is the one question you want to ask Jesus when you get to heaven."
For the life fo me, I can't honestly think of anything right now.
In the past, I have said I want to know what REALLY happened to Elvis; What REALLY happened to JFK;and various other "Conspiracy Theory" type questions. Now, these things just are not that important to me. Oh, don't get me wrong, I do want to know, but I guess I figure that I have all of eternity to find out the answers to all of the questions I've wondered about.
Paul, I read your answer, saying that you wanted to ask what the one purpose of your life was. I honestly believe God has shown me the purpose for my life. Oh, I am sure I have missed many things along the way, but I do believe that I have found, and am fulfilling the purpose of my life. (Ultimately, I believe we are ALL made for one purpose- to worship God. I believe we are just all called to seperate parts of worship. I beleive that is our strengths, versus our weaknesses, which we were not necessarily called for, as in a purpose, but our weaknesses are also to teach us and show us things- mainly that we are still completely dependent on God alone.)
Patty, I read your letter, and your letter is the one that pretty much brought this question on.
Since I cannot honestly think of something that I would ask Jesus, because I know I will be spending a lot of time worshipping at His feet. I love the verse that my email log-on name is from- EveryKneeWillBow- Philippians :9-11. Yes, one day EVERY knee will bow, and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of lords and King of kings. For me, I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT WAIT to bow at His feet. I picture it for me being more like being completely on my hands and knees, unlike some, who just the sheer power of Jesus forces them to their knees in total surrender. They don't have a choice. For me, it is PURELY by choice. Yes, it is complete surrender, but it will be such a joy. For so many it will not be a joy to bow to Him.
I love the thought of casting my thrones at His feet, just worshipping and praising Him.
One of the first things I want to do after my initial time with Jesus (I realize time is not going to be important there, but outside of my earthly understanding, I do not know how else to refer to it...)- I want to have a picnic lunch with Bathsheba. She has become one of my heroes from the Bible. For years I misunderstood her as being more like Jezeel. It wasn't until I began to study and understand her that I realize I am a lot like her. She made many bad choices in her life, but in the end, she gave it all to God. She allowed God to take her bad experiences and use it for His glory. I can't wait to spend time with her, talking about her life, her choices, and all that this entails.
I also can't wait to just be with the wild animals. I love the image of the lion laying down with the lamb. I can't wait to tustle about in the midst of this, snuggling with them. Riding about heaven on an elephant, or on a giraffe. Oh, I know... I don't really know what heaven is going to be like. But my imagination can run for days, weeks, months and years................ just to be free of the trials of this world, and to be with my King. Ahhhhhhhh yes, heaven indeed!
