Prepare In Advance.
There’s a little stone house on the side of the road in the heart of New Hampshire. Its windows glow brightly at night and its occupants appear cozy and warm. Outside, on their tiny front porch, are stacks of dried firewood clear up to the ceiling. This family is prepared for the brutal New England winters. It’s wise to prepare for things in life, but how many of us prepare for our death?
It’s a life changing event that is 100% inevitable! Seventy years are given us! And some may even live to eighty. But even the
best of these years are often empty and filled with pain; soon they disappear, and we are gone.
Who can realize the terrors of Your anger? Which of us can fear You as he should? Teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should. Psalm 90:10-12
Father God, I don’t like the idea of dying at all! And yet, it’s inevitable. When my time comes, I’m thankful that I’ve put my faith and trust in Your Son, Jesus Christ. He was put to death but raised Himself back to life...all because of LOVE! That same Power (and LOVE) is what will safely carry me from this world to the next. Oh, that the people reading this will recognize Your Holy Spirit speaking to them in Truth and Love! Amen
Let not your heart be troubled. You are trusting God, now trust in me. John 14:1
