scared ta death best

Philippians 1:22-23 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!  I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;

There isn’t any reason for you to be scared of death if you’re a child of God and a born again Christian.  In fact we should look forward to it…I do!  I can’t wait to meet the lover of my soul….the one who died for me.  I can’t wait to see my heavenly Father who loves me so much.  Paul in the bible said it is far better to be with Christ!  To be home with our Lord who has prepared a place for us… is so exciting!!!

Ain’t no reason ta be scared of death!

Last Friday I watched the homegoing service for Francis McClurkin (The mother of gospel singer Donnie McClurkin) and I could tell that she is going to sorely missed…but there was great joy because her loved ones know where she is.  My wonderful mom made her transition …it will be 2 years February 10th.  At first it hurt a lot when she left because we all missed her.  My mom suffered greatly and I’m so glad she is pain-free right now.  I’m so glad she is getting all the love and care from Her Lord and Savior.

Ain’t no reason ta be scared of death!

I’ve told my husband and my children that I want a true homegoing service with balloons and no flowers.  I want a party, happiness, joy and excitement.  I can’t wait to see my wonderful Savior.  I love Him so so much and I’ve been trying to tell everybody about Him and I’m very excited to see God face to face.  I want one of those New Orleans homegoings.

I think that it will be an odd feeling when you know that you’re about to make the transition… whether it happens quickly or over a period of time…but I do know that the Holy Spirit will be with you at that time and He will help you in those very last moments.  If fact any time you are facing any kind of trouble in your life….GOD IS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU!!!  I believe He will even closer to you in the end and I’ve seen this in people who are getting ready for the transition.  They have calmness and a peace.  They want you to let them go because they can feel the love of God and it’s drawing them close to His side.  The things of earth grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.

Ain’t no reason ta be scared of death!

While I’m still here on this earth…I want to be in a state of…. “Fruitful labor”!  Doing everything I can to spread the good news of Jesus Christ so that others will have no reason to be scared to die.  While I’m waiting to make my transition…. I am going to enjoy my time with my husband, children, granddaughter, family and friends. I’m going to walk with God everyday and build on my relationship with Him.

Message for today:  Ain’t no reason ta be scared of death… not at all!!! (Unless you are not saved…born again…accepted and believe in Jesus Christ… I pray you are not…scared to death)
