There are days when I wish I could simply walk into heaven and know that God would be waiting there with open arms. There are other days when I feel there is still so much I should do here on earth. No matter where I am, I can rely on the fact that wherever I am, Jesus is right beside me, carrying me, lifting me away from the things that hurt me – cuddling me when I feel lost or heavy hearted – protecting me from the dangers of getting old – giving me courage when I have lost hope – inspiring me with His everlasting love – filling me with a fraction of that love so I can love others.
Jesus has promised to give us all these things and more. Whether our days are numbered or we still have time on this planet to share our knowledge of Him with others is immaterial. He has a plan for each of our lives and we can count on the outcome being amazing when we trust that promise.
Consider today as the last day of your life. What will you do with it? We can go through the motion of living like we do every day, or we can become bold in professing our faith to others and giving them something concrete to hang onto. We can lay our burdens on Jesus and have the freedom to profess the wondrous things He’s done for us. Don’t wait until tomorrow.
