I am currently reading the book of Ezekiel....and I can't even imagine what he must have felt like when he was whisked away to have his visions. As I sit and read about all that he saw I am just lost!
As I first began to read I tried to imagine what it was that he was seeing. I tried to piece it all together in my mind. I just couldn't do it. It was far to confusing for me. Oh, I guess if I took each piece and tried to place it in it's proper spot (and if I were a great artist!) I might be able to get a decent likeness. But honestly, I don't think that his discriptions cover even a small part of what he saw!
That is kind of like our vision of heaven. There are bits and pieces in the bible that give us a glimpse into what is awaiting us. But we can't fully imagine how grand it will truly be. There is just NO WAY we will be prepared. Even putting all of the bits and pieces together isn't enough.
So...as I continue to read Ezekiel, I think I am just going to try and glean what I can, and let my poor little imagination take a break. The same with the whole heaven thing... do I really care what it looks like? Nope... I'll be too busy keeping my eyes on the Savior, praising Him.... I know it is there, and that He is preparing a place for me.... that's all I need to know.
