19 May Being here….thinking about there….
As I sit here….half way through my time here in TN before I head back to Honduras… I am amazed at how many people are excited about serving in Honduras. I am receiving e-mails and phone calls and donations to help these precious people who are brothers and sisters in Christ!
But, I see so much sadness and loss here in TN as I watch friends of mine mourn the death of their son and their friends’ son…I see fear in my friends faces as their children decide to join the armed forces…I see cancer spreading and engulfing people around me….and yet I know there is hope…I know that going home to be with our Father is the ultimate goal. Why is it so hard to understand as we face the end? I don’t understand how people without faith survive such loss…..
This is why we must go and serve…to love on those who don’t understand…to show them who Christ is and how He can help us endure anything…the ultimate goal…Eternity with our Father…our Savior…our Comforter…our Prince of Peace…just thinking about it brings me a serenity I look forward to….
Am I ready for it? Maybe…but probably not…I think I have too much teaching and work to do here…but just knowing the peace that will surround us one day should be enough to make us want to share and teach others about this amazing God who will NEVER let us down and who is ALWAYS here…He is the Father who never leaves and never messes up!!
The only piece of perfection we will ever know..we can grasp hold and never let go!!
AND IT FEELS SO GOOD!!!
