This is my new catch phrase now. It keeps my mind right. Q:”How’s it going, Tonya?” A:”Heaven will be wonderful!” Q:”You have so much to do.” A:”Heaven will be wonderful!” You get the point. Keeps my mind fixed on the preciousness of evil – free eternity with Jesus. It is easier to focus on the present when daydreaming of a brilliant future. ☺❤❤❤
There is a big list of things I believe. But what is more important than that is what is true. I believe the Bible is true. I believe God is truth and He wrote everything we need to know in the Bible. I believe it is difinitive and unapologetic and stands and defends itself unquestionably and is our greatest tool for life, instruction, correction and battle (defense and offence). Thus, I believe every word in it is correct and true and gives us everything we need for salvation and eternal life with God in heaven through the saving power of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah and only means of salvation from sin and evil. I believe prayer, faith and contrition bring us to direct audience with Almighty God who loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with us. And that is it. I used to have many opinions, but God has lined them up with His truth, thanks and praise be to God!!! His is the opinion which matters because it n is true and perfect and holy. Praise God Almighty!!! Praise my Heavenly Father, Maker of heaven and earth and all that we see or know! May His name be lifted up! May His light cut through the darkness! May His truth set us all free! May those He made love Him and choose salvation! ❤❤❤
I am looking forward to Heaven. I love but can barely imagine the idea of no more crying. I have only been a cryer since I lost the most important man of my life. Since then, I cry a lot. I mean, I will cry for a commercial or a comedy movie or moments in the day or during worship. I just bawl like a baby. As I rarely ever cried before the devastating loss, perhaps I had saved up all these tears, or now that I have gone through such heartache I have great empathy, or because I know Jesus is coming soon and I weep mournfully for those unsaved who will be left behind to suffer. Any way you have it, in Heaven with our Heavenly Daddy, we are told there will be no more crying or sadness or evil to make us a copy again. That, my dear friend, amazes me. I long for it. I want to be with God. I also do not want others to be lost or punished eternally in hell. I want everyone to join us in the beautiful hope we have. Spread the word, be saved today if you aren’t, tell a friend to be. It is the greatest act of love for God and them and yourself. Jesus only delays coming too save as many as He can. Let’s help Him. God bless your efforts and He is our loving strength! Praise God! ❤❤❤
My daddy was a boxing instructor in the Marines, so we watched a lot of boxing back in the day. So I love boxing analogies. Lol And in general, the key to never losing a fight is to pick the right fight. Yeah, sometimes people will surprise you and get in a good hit anyway, but you have done your best to minimize damage and be victorious. So in life, we need to conserve our energy and pick the right fight. There are many out there. Many. Any number of fights to be had. And what someone’s outer appearance is or whether they know proper etiquette or what translation of Bible they read (despiteth howest thou likest the perfecteth KJV, becauseth everyone talkest thusly) or what the name is on the church. These things do not matter at all. Not one bit. There are real issues no one is talking about. There is a sin problem, an avoiding church problem, a my kids can beat a video game in 2 days straight but don’t know a Bible verse problem, an abortion problem, and here’s the biggest one of all, a problem of people choosing sin and eternal hell to humble repentance (contrition) and eternal heaven. This is a huge problem. This is a good fight to take on. Because Jesus already won this one for them, they just need truth and prayer to open their hearts and accept it. As a big picture person, I rarely get hung up majoring on the minors, but I am not always fighting what I should be fighting. But way too much attention is being put on inconsequential matters and not enough people are fighting for people’s eternal soul destination. There attention only two options: heaven or hell and I don’t and God doesn’t want anyone to go there because of His great love for us. I love because He loves. Fight that fight. Help them if you can, win their hearts for God who longs for more children to adopt. I don’t want anyone going to hell. I will fight that fight. ❤
Ready for what? People are fixated on preparedness for disasters, war, bad water, terrorist attacks, but all that is very temporary. Important in the temporary but temporary nonetheless. I believe it is much more important to be ready for the eternal, that which can only be determined by your free will during this temporary life. Jesus is Coming soon. That has been dumbed down so much, mocked, sounding like craziness and accepted as a sign of craziness by society at whole. “People have said it for years”, “It hasn’t happened and won’t happen”, “Will it happen at all?” Questions like these have been said to me. My answer is the same. The Bible says it will happen and it only speaks truth so it will happen. When? “No one knows the day or the hour”, “It will come like a thief in the night.” That tells me no one knows. So if people claim to know, that is very dangerous because only God knows and them they are claiming to be Him and I would night ot want to be them. I do know it could be today or years from now but we are very safe to be ready and stay focused on God, the Eternal One now. I have are saying on my fridge from a missionary friend, “Jesus is coming today… unless He doesn’t”. My friends, is eternity something to be taken lightly? Not to me. I cannot wait to spend forever with my loving God and this time without sin and evil around. Wow, can you imagine??? ❤
I have determined, with all the hullabaloo about “safe zones”, that instead of laughing at tender souls who can dish it out but not take it or for those genuinely tender ones who were born with a soft breakableness, or anyone anymore, that safety is invaluable. I never thought so because I had my fiercely strong and protective Daddy so never felt unsafe. For some kids, their father or mother nowadays is why they feel unsafe to begin with, being impossible to please, being abusive, being critical, neglecting, controlling, what not. And there is a world of people who just have been beat up by demons and other people choosing evil as their lifestyle that safety has become this need, like air. And I decided when all this was becoming apparent in such an increasingly dark and hostile world, that I will always be a safe zone. My body, you see, is a temple of the Holy Spirit. I have a simple temple but it is clean and well attended to. And the Holy Spirit in me is stronger than anything else in this universe. As long as I keep my pride out of the way and stay close to God, I am always safe. Does that make me bulletproof? It could because of my faith and God’s provision, but generally He does not choose to work that way. Those rare events are called miracles. But it means that if a bullet hits me, it may take my body but never my life, I reside in Heaven. I have a place there waiting for me and will Bute fully alive with God forever, for all eternity. This body is super temporary. I am my own safe zone. No amount of evil or hostility or ugliness by other people will ever diminish God’s perpetual and beautiful love for me. Nothing is stronger than His promises or love. Never will be. I rest safe and secure in the absolute truth that I am saved by Jesus and am living eternally with Him, whether I am here or in heaven makes no difference to me. Heaven sounds better because the evil will be destroyed, woo hoo, but I am at peace and in joy and safety wherever I am or whatever is going on. I am a safe zone. You can be too. Anyone can make that beautiful choice for themselves. Unfortunately we cannot make the choice for anyone but us, so please make it for yourself and you will never regret it. ❤
I have visited a beautiful city, one which houses many people with a lot of money, a lot of beauty, a lot of everything. In this city was an excessive amount of homeless people, “urban outdoorsmen”. And I cannot help but wonder which is fully free. One can be arrested for not holding a viable address, one is in prison of having to make the same amount of money or more to maintain his address. One can roam the world, live off their skills, maybe fostering an addiction. One is stuck, living off their degree and grace of an employer, maybe fostering an addiction. I believe I am fully free and it has nothing to do with address. I have lived homeless (did I hear a gasp?) And I have lived in affluence. I prefer neither but I am fully free because of my address in eternity, not now. My address is heaven, on the corner of gold and pristine colorful gardens. My address frees me from anything but worshiping and serving God and service is a privilege and not a duty because of God’s amazing love for me. That is fully free.
