Last Sunday, I heard this song in church. I had a bear of a time finding it online, but someone shared it on facebook today and I finally found it! I couldn’t even believe it actually talked about scars. So, since this is Sunday, I’ll just leave this with you to think about what heaven will be like.

You know, that is our ultimate destination. That is where our salvation will be completely and ultimately fulfilled…in restoration! It will be total and complete. It will be internal and eternal. There will be no more tears and sorry. There also will be no more scars…aside from the ones Jesus carries!

What will we take with us? What won’t we be able to take with us when we head for the other side?

What will be there? What won’t be there?
What will we take with us? What won’t we be able to take?

Enjoy thinking about heaven and what awaits us there!

Think about what heaven will be like. What will be there? What won't be there? What will we take with us? What won't we be able to take? All our scars will be gone! Click To Tweet

 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man.
He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more,

neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore,
for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:3-4 ESV

The Other Side

All the treasure you hold, you can’t take it with you
Any silver and gold, you can’t take it with you
You could make yourself a name with fortune and fame
But you can’t take it with you to the other side
You could build your mansions high but you can’t take it with you

 

All your hard-earned pride, you can’t take it with you
Any plans you made to keep you sheltered and safe
You can’t take ‘em with you to the other side … (but)
Love, Real Love, Love
Love, Real Love, Love

 

When that day comes, don’t look back
Love will be the bags you pack
For the other side

 

All the scars that show, you can’t take them with you
And the ones that don’t, you can’t take them with you
Though your body breaks from years of labor and pain
You can’t take it with you to the other side

 

Chorus
All your worst mistakes, you can’t take them with you
All your secret shame, you can’t take it with you
At your final breath you see all that’s left is…
Love, Real Love, Love
Love, Real Love, Love
Love, Real Love, Love
On the other side

 

And the ones that don’t, you can’t take them with you
Though your body breaks from years of labor and pain
You can’t take it with you to the other side

 

Chorus
All your worst mistakes, you can’t take them with you
All your secret shame, you can’t take it with you
At your final breath you see all that’s left is…
Love, Real Love, Love
Love, Real Love, Love
Love, Real Love, Love
On the other side
