Revelation #26: Life Is Forever


We started the

New Year

with the desire to be

Different

to be changed

but not with

resolutions

but with

Revelations

that make

every moment

a new moment.

A

new moment

is a hello to a

what is now

and a goodbye to

what was.

Something has happened in my soul

where I am

Different

because of all the loss

that I have been facing

with loved ones

whose loved ones

have passed onto eternity~

the young

the old

&

the not so old~

it happens to everyone.

No one is exempt~

not me

not you~

no one.

Too many names to write

of those who recently

have been greeted

by

Jesus

as they entered into their eternal home.

Great sadness remains in the hearts,

yet great joy

for the one who is

in

His Presence.

I over heard the words

at a recent funeral~

Life isn't Forever.

A true statement

as this life here and now

is not forever.

A false statement

as

Life is Forever

in Him & with Him.

Life not as we know it

but

Life as we will know it.

To be in the Presence of

Jesus

when

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 21:4 Life beyond our wildest dreams.

A place for you

&

A place for me~

In my Father’s house are many rooms.

If it were not so, would

I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? John 14:2

A place

better than a beach

better than a ski slope

better than a sunny day

better than your best day you have ever experienced.

The unknown to us

yet known to the

One

who told us.

One day,

yes one day,

you and I

will be called home

to our real home,

yet we remain now

so

we grieve those who have gone ahead of us

because of the great loss

yet

we are filled with an inner joy

because we know

Life is Forever

In Him

who is forever.

Therefore we do not lose heart.

Though outwardly we are wasting away,

yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day

. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us

an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,

since what is seen is temporary,

but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

"See You Later"

to all of those

in my life & in your life

who have gone ahead of us~

you will be missed

yet

loved forever

as we can

Only Imagine~
