Taste Heaven

Even the Walls Glow There

I went to a wonder-filled place last night,

I cannot remember seeing such before,

Even the walls were translucent and bright,

Yet my heart knew there was way more in store.


I walked around the portico and porch,

Met with great delight other ones of light,

Also transfigured, they too glowed like me,

Peaceful, powerful, in wonder of Might.


Beyond being on fire, my heart was alive,

Sensing the Mighty One’s presence near,

Enveloped in more than wonder or awe,

Utter ecstasy knowing God was here.


I had come from my physical being,

Where some sickness had been troubling my soul,

That lifted as my spirit was now in this place,

The normal of Heaven was for me to be whole.

I was approaching the Throne Room quickly,

The radiance seemed almost blinding white,

The glory of God was increasing fast,

I was drawn to the One known as Pure Light.


Words now fail to convey anything close,

To my encounter with Majesty on High,

I could mumble some pitiful lame phrases,

Try to describe soaring and kissing the sky.


Overwhelmed, in complete shock and awe,

Was my being as I approached my Father,

His smile was immense, His passion intense,

As He embraced me, time did not matter.


So the Good Book guides us just this way,

To come boldly and approach God’s Throne,

Well, as one pilgrim who’s now been there,

The Throne was great, but God’s heart is my home.
