And one day I’m going to leave this wheelchair behind. I cannot wait. I may have suffered with Christ on earth, but one day in heaven I’m going to reign with him. I may have tasted the pains of living on this planet, but one day I’m going to eat from the tree of life in the pleasure of heaven, and it’s all going to happen in the twinkling of an eye. The Lord’s overcoming of this world will be the lifting of the curtain on our ﬁve senses, and we shall see him and we shall be like him, and we shall see the whole universe in plain sight.
Joni Eareckson Tada from her chapter, Hope. . . the Best of Things in Suffering and the Sovereignty of God, edited by John Piper and Justin Taylor, p. 202.
“I may have suffered with Christ on earth, but one day in heaven I’m going to reign with him.” Joni
