My Lord Jesus Christ is faithful and gracious to my own soul as well as to the souls of all who serve Him with the fullness of their hearts. Reflecting upon my precious Savior gives me deep, inner peace and a complete happiness the world knows not of. The world, lost in deep sin and real darkness, is truthfully not my true home. My home and inheritance is in Heaven above. After the horrible death of my beloved mother-in-law Lori, I have found my mind pondering Glory Land with perhaps a deeper longing than I have ever known. As a child, I relished in the captivating reality that my whole life was ahead of me, and I regretfully considered it as loss if my earthly life were to be cut short. However, as an adult in the current status of having experienced quite a bit of what life has to offer, I know its joys and its disappointments. I know we can never put our hope in a world that is temporary and expect it to always be faithful to us. But Jesus is the faithful One; my hope is secure in His second coming to take the righteous ones home. Living on the earth in this present time in history is my calling. But this life is of no importance if I do not continuously serve my God by following his decrees and loving all the people He created and placed in my life as I am able. I choose to live my life in this earth with peace and contentment and simultaneously look forward to eternal life with the Father in Heaven, where I can see Lori again, I can see my Grandparents again, and I can meet cool people like the apostle Paul and Noah and Abraham. Yes. Forever my heart will worship and praise my the Savior of my soul. I will dance on the streets made of gold before my Maker and I will sing aloud with a chorus of both angels and saints beautiful songs of thanksgiving and honor to the Lord of Lords. Yes indeed. Praise the Lord, o my soul.
