My brain vs my mind

In my mental musings I often ponder and wonder about now and when I enter heaven, and the differences there will be in my body now as compared to my new body. When my body dies in this life my soul immediately goes to be with the Lord. The Apostle Paul says in

Philippians 1:21-23 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better;

“To depart and be with Christ” which means if I die I go to be with Christ, and Paul says that is “very much better”, and I believe that for sure. When I die my memory goes with me, that is I will remember the events of this life, I will be able to think, to reason, to converse. My brain as part of my physical body will be dead, but my mind will not miss a beat as I move from one sphere to the other. I wonder if my mind will function much better and why it will if it does.I wonder if all the time I have spent memorizing Bible verses will make any difference once I step into my new body. I forget things all of the time now that once upon a time I did not. I am pretty sure that will change in eternity. I wonder how much my mind will become new, how powerful will my thinking be.

On thing for sure that I can say with great confidence is that I have no fear of death, I am looking forward to that day with great anticipation. If I live anther 20 years that will mean fruitful labor for me, but I am ready to go whenever Jesus is ready to take me.
