His Rainbows are a reminder of that! We just have to remember to look for them 🙂
There is truly nothing we can do that Jesus can not forgive. Just ask Him. As for God, He doesn’t even see our wrongs, because Jesus already paid the price for them. And as for the Holy Spirit, He is here to be our Comforter and Friend, there is nothing He will not forgive either.
So if there is a wrong-doing of some type or something holding you back from our Lord, don’t let it. Jesus loves us just as we are. We don’t have to wait until we are “good enough” or until we “figure it all out”. Just call on His Name-Jesus. And He will come, because He loves you. He’s got you. Let Him. And if you have to start over every single day, then do so. For each day is new. And it’s yours.
Jesus is worthy of your Trust. I promise.
You Are Forgiven and Free Forever!
Just ask Jesus to take you there.
Our Father loves you. Jesus gave His life for you and rose again so you could spend forever in Heaven, and so those you love could too. You don’t have to “figure it all out”. You don’t have to reconcile your whole life. Just ask Jesus to be your Savior and He will. And He will take you to Heaven because He loves you so much.
As for faith. I think way too many people confuse faith with how they feel on any given day. But Faith is really about who we choose to follow every single day. And it is that choice that makes all the difference 😊
Meet you at the Gate 🙂
Heaven is such an amazing place, but difficult to describe 😊
But there is one thing I can promised you, Heaven is as Real as the earth on which we stand. It’s not some cloud, or some misty place. It’s the Garden of Eden. There is life. There is laughter, lots of it. And there is pure joy, pure peace and pure love. There are deep friendships that last forever. There are rivers and hills. There are flowers and fruit. There are dogs! There are things to do, adventures that will never tire you but only brings you happiness. You will never feel sick, or tired or lonely. It is the Grand Adventure with all the fun that implies, but none of the fear, worry or hardship.
The closest I can come to describing it in this world’s terms is that it is like the joy of all of your firsts combined, with all of the joy but none of the fear. The first time you rolled down a grassy hill, the first time you spun around in the falling snow, the first time you jumped in the pool. The first time you rode a bike downhill with the wind in your face. The first time someone you love smiled. The first time you were hugged. All of the joy, none of the fear.
How any one or any place can give perfect joy, perfect love and perfect peace at the same time is beyond me, but that is what Heaven is like. That’s what Jesus offers, forever!
I wish I had better words to describe Heaven for you. City of Lights as been used. And although it seems trite, it is true. Filled with Rainbows, the “streets of gold” are created by God’s Light. A golden sun light so beautiful we simply can’t imagine how beautiful it really is. Rainbows, God’s Promises, fill the land. Each more beautiful than the last. Rivers with sun shining on them, so crystal clear that you can drink straight from the river. Trees and meadows, mountains, flowers and fruit everywhere, just waiting for you. Picnics and walks. Running like the wind and never growing weary. It’s simply amazing, just like God’s Grace.
Imagine a world where every wish is taken care of before you even wish for it. A world where there is no pain, no hurt, no worry and no fatigue. No medicine. No rushing. No struggle to just get up. A body that works perfectly.
Only joy. And peace. Only beauty and love. A beauty so amazing that you could just spin around and around, and spin around some more, drinking it in forever. And if you did only that, it would be enough! But there is so much more! Grand adventures, spending time with the people you love. Meeting new friends. Being fearless, not courageous in the face of fear as we are here on earth, but truly not having any fear. Can you imagine? This is Heaven.
And there is work in Heaven. If you can call it that 😊. For it is work that never tires you, never rushes you, and always contributes to something you really care about and enjoy. Work that you want to do. Work that you love.
And there are friendships in Heaven. Real Ones. The kind that fills you up until you are overflowing. Friendships that never cause you pain or heartache. Friendships that never end and give you only joy and strength.
Many people think that Heaven is just some mystical place, but is as real as the earth you are standing on right now.
You will walk, you will run and you will see that people you love and those who love you!
You will never be cold or tired again. You will fly like the wind, with the sun warming you all the way through.
You will spend your days with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, in the Presence of God.
So get ready for absolute joy! Because that is what Heaven is 😊
God always seems to use anything bad to make something good! Take the Rainbow. If it rains, and it’s sunny at the same time, God makes a Rainbow. We may need to seek shelter from the storm, but what a beautiful result 🙂
The funny thing is one has only to look out the window on the way to work to see God’s Miracles. The sun, the trees, the mountain tops and sun rises, the wind and the waves…
Last night we were driving home in the strangest storm. It was all white! I have never seen anything like it. The rain was a driving force, heavier than I had ever seen. But it was as if we were driving into a white tunnel because at the same exact moment, the sun shown so much! It was so beautiful.
As was the Rainbow that followed it, a sign of God’s Promises kept!
So if you are wondering where God is-look out the window 🙂
“Never put a question mark, where God has put a period!”
Often, when we pray, we pray for those things we think we need. A job, a loved one, health…Whatever we are worrying about at the time. And there is nothing wrong with that 😊.
But I wonder what would happen if we prayed that God’s Will be done in our lives? God loves us and wants us to be happy. He provides good things for us, because He loves us. But one of the differences between God and us is that our Father can see today AND tomorrow. We can only see today. So what we think will make us happy today, what we think we need today, may not be what we need tomorrow! So by praying that God’s Will be done in our lives; we are trusting that because God knows what will happen tomorrow, and because God loves us, His Will for us will be the better choice. Always.
In God We Trust, Amen 😊
With the coming of Mother’s Day, I can’t help but think of Mary. How she stood at the foot of the cross, which is probably more than I could bear. But knowing and loving my children and knowing how they love me-I have to imagine it gave Jesus great comfort.
I could not bear to watch my son suffer so, but she did! For Him, for us.
And each and every day, I am so grateful both for her example and prayers. I will never be the mother she was, not even by half. But I will always be grateful to her. Always.
Happy Mother’s Day Mary. Thank you!
Reading God’s Word (The Bible)
Have you ever noticed how you can read the same verse in the Bible one year, and then 20 years later get something completely different out of the same verse. Both True! I think that is God’s way of giving us the information we need-at that particular moment. Because He loves us.
Many people have asked, “How do you understand what the Bible says?” The answer is simple really. It’s prayer. I ask God, in Jesus’ name, to send the Holy Spirit to help me read it and learn whatever God wants me to learn. This is the best way. Let no man interpret God’s Word for you, ask God to interpret it.
And just so you know, if it doesn’t make sense that moment, it will at some time in your life!
