Wondering what Heaven is like and what it will mean to meet Jesus in the air when the rapture comes, I wondered if I might see my father who passed away about 20 years ago. He was an atheist and it’s hard to realize that his life who meant so much to me as a small child will no longer be available to my life once I am no longer on this earth.
Not knowing whether to be sad over not seeing my dad once I’m gone because he was not a believer as an adult has given me pause for thought.
Many verses come to mind in helping me to deal with this especially since my family members are still alive. My father was raised as a Roman Catholic, my mother as a Methodist. They both turned from Jesus. I can be happy though that since I have turned toward Jesus I have never looked back.
As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool repeats his folly. – Proverbs 26:11
But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. – 2 Peter 2:22
