“There are times in your life when my peace must be enough; there are things that you cannot fathom or understand about my will and purposes. That is where trust comes in and you choose to trust me or not. However, when you do, I will never disappoint.
You should not live in the fear of death. For my children it (death) is the pathway to eternity with me and life as it should have been from the beginning. When it comes to heaven, you see through a very dark glass because what is waiting for you is too amazing to be revealed now.
The greatest gift, that of being united with Christ, is the ultimate purpose and fulfillment of your life. I am coming for all my children one day; some before the end of time and some when time ends. I am coming to each in their own way and my children must trust me. Life is short, death is long; yet when you are mine and you set your sights on eternity, what will come to you will be more than you could have ever hoped for or imagined. This world is not your home. In the place I have prepared for you, your fellowship with me will never be hindered again.
There is joy in the life you have on earth so be optimistic and always look for me, for you will find me as you seek and pursue me. You can know abundance where you are; but always keep an eye toward eternity. Trust in me for all things, but particularly for the things you don’t understand.
Let it be well with your soul as I pour out my peace upon you. Walk with me and talk with me and allow me to speak to you in my word, in my creation, and through others who know me and have walked with me. Don’t allow yourself to become too attached to this life otherwise your focus will be skewed, and you will not be able see me as I want to reveal myself to you. You are passing through, not to, this life. Keep an eye toward the heaven I have prepared for you because it will be glorious.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NIV)
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Revelation 21: 1 – 5a (NIV)
