In a Little While

Jesus said to His disciples, “A little while and you will no longer see me, and again a little while later and you will see me." John 16:16

Jesus and His disciples certainly had some strange conversations! But after He died and appeared to them, some of those conversations became clearer.

I miss my mom very much, but that is tempered by knowing I will see her again. How terribly desolate I would be if I did not have this reassurance! There are so many people around the world in need of this assurance, that our life here is like a blink of an eye compared to eternity. One day, after in what God’s eyes is a little while, we will join Jesus and the loved ones who passed away ahead of us. 

But we do not have to wait to be with Jesus! We can be with Him all the time! He left us the Spirit to be with us always! “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:20

We just need to spend time with Him and not be so enamored of the things this world has to offer! We can't "see and hear" Him if we don't turn off the noises, the clamoring of this world, the urgent call of our long list of needs and things to do! Dear Jesus, help us to see You here and now.
