When Starbucks promotes a new drink, they offer free sips (i.e. samples). Those free sips fill me to
the brim with good vibes. But the sip, albeit a good one,
has no eternal effect. It's yummy in the mouth, but once down the shoot, the pleasure's gone. However...
When I see a rainbow penetrate a convoy of dark clouds after a Florida storm
...that's a sip of heaven; when I see the sun cascade onto the sapphire ocean as the waves jump up to greet it...that's a sip of heaven; when I'm on the other side of a valley & undoubtedly know it's God who led me out...that's a sip of heaven; when I see a toddler smile so big at his mommy that his whole body wiggles
& jiggles
...that's a sip of heaven. These sips of heaven are not short-lived because they're
introducing our eternal heaven!
Heaven is so glorious & luminous & powerful--
that we couldn't handle all of it now--so God lets us have sips. And if we know we're going there, those sips are sometimes all that keeps us going--& that's OK. Oh, I can't wait to get to heaven, but for now, I'll enjoy the sips!
