My son lied down early with a tummy ache. He got nestled in, drank his tea for nausea and then he had a movie waiting for him on netflix. Before I left him to his cinema before he went to sleep, he made a statement; “Mommy, look at the clouds. If the clouds fell, what would Heaven do? Would it fly away?”
It was funny. I sat there for a moment, trying to search for an answer besides “no”, knowing that “no” would not be sufficient enough for my 5 1/2 year old. Even though, “no” is ultimately the only answer to that question. So here is my answer……………………………..
If the clouds fell
In the firmament above awaits a Kingdom so splendid,
not harsh wind nor storm, can break its settlement and end it.
rain will fall and clouds will disperse,
above our crowns and shock,
but Heaven will stand as strong as it has,
like an iron pillar and rock.
No forecast or weatherman can predict what is to come.
A sunny day for many, and a treacherous day for some.
Just be ready when those clouds depart and the final moments arrive,
When Jesus calls His sealed and chosen,
the ones who have survived.
