I wanted to share this picture another day. But it's a good follow up of a verse, from a video i just watched.
Sometimes we think that "dead" is the worst thing that can happen to us or our family and friends.
But i have learned as a Christian, who reads the words of God and trying to apply those principles into my daily live.
That in this live, we constantly need to be prepared for distractions, (unseen or visible war) fights and awareness of what is going on, in ourselves and our surroundings. How we proceed ourselves through our initiated actions and do this all, by faith.
So that we have to understand and acknowledge, that we can't do it without Christ. Often we discover it after we fail miserably when we have proceeded in our own will. Trust me i have failed in that perspective.
For me this life is a preparation of what's to come. I have been raised up by believing there is a Heaven, so I never felt scared to think of "dead". Especially when Christ our Lord is calling me home. I will be cheering in joy. Ofcourse after i have a fulfilled live in God's Will.
That's also how they do it, in my native Surinam culture, after someone past away. We cry, rejoice, dance, laugh and remember that person.
To loose someone you love, can be painful in the deepest of your being. But if you think of it that they are without pain or suffering and to be close to God in His Kingdom. It is a blessing or as the verse says "It is gain". #word #bible #live #dead #fears #sorrow #cry #mourn #joy #rejoice #pain #acknowledge #prepare # #walking #lifes #path #christian #God #Jesus #hiswillbedone #hiskingdomcome #onearth #asitisinheaven
