So I was thinking about heaven today and I was thinking about what our new bodies that we dream about will actually be like. We all imagine that we will be “perfect” when we get to heaven (whatever perfect means for us). But what does perfect mean to God?
Will our heaven bodies simply be a younger, slimmer, healthier version of us? How old is the perfect age? 18? 21? 45? Will we have perfect complexions or will our pox and acne scars still be visible? Will my warts and moles still be on show for all to see? Will stretch marks be a thing of the past? Will my teeth be straight and my limp gone?
And heaven help me! Will all that plastic surgery stick in heaven or will she get her old nose back???
I don’t know the answer to all these questions because I haven’t been to heaven. I do know that we will be enough of who we are today that people will recognise us.
I do know that whatever you do or don’t look like, at whatever age is perfect for you in heaven, that you won’t worry about your features because you will be 100% totally, truly loved and accepted just as you are – warts and all – or no warts and all. I know this because that’s what heaven is – love and acceptance.
So dream away – imagine the perfect heaven body, because whether you get that or not, you will be happy!
