Day 20: Life Never Ends
I am still so baffled by it
every time it happens,
yet we know it is going to happen
to all of us
in GOD'S timing
when we are
UNLEASHED from LIFE here on earth into our HEAVENLY HOME~
held in our FATHER'S ARMS.
As another one of HIS son's went to go home with HIM.
He finished so well,
yet the battle was fierce
yet he never gave up
because that is what GOD'S children do.
He gave his life for JESUS as he served HIM with his whole heart
singing unto the LORD
making music with such JOY.
Then the real fight came when the fight was against
the enemy of cancer.
Oh it came on fierce, but so did he and his precious wife
who stood by his side,
never giving up
as they TRUSTED GOD every step of the way
and surrounded by PRAYER warriors.
Oh they never gave up,
as they also continued to use their GOD gifts
because that is what you do
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me,
but also to all who have longed for HIS appearing" (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
Oh the loss is so great here on earth,
even though ROBERT is with JESUS.
Oh how GOD uses all things for good
as ROBERT and his family walk the walk
bringing glory to JESUS
every step of the way.
I am still so baffled how fierce the fight can be
even though we are told~
"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" (2 Corinthian 4:16-17)
I still hate death,
but GOD hates it more
that HE had to kill it for good
"And now HE has made all of this plain to us by the coming of our SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, who broke the power of death and showed us the way of everlasting life through trusting HIM"
(2 Timothy 1:10)
yet it takes death on earth to get us there.
But our last breath is never final
as it is just the beginning of our REAL LIFE
that GOD has purposed for each one of us
who RECEIVE JESUS as our LORD & SAVIOR.
If JESUS is your finish line then the finish line becomes your start.
No questions asked when you are covered by JESUS.
Oh ROBERT is with JESUS!
He fought the good fight.
The "good" is a LIFE LIVING FOR JESUS.
Please keep his precious family, the Hayes family, in your prayers
as they continue to bring GLORY to GOD through their great loss.
Oh death isn't the winner~
"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"
Because the only
"SCARS IN HEAVEN
are on the hands that hold you now"
