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.

Ain’t no reason ta be scared of death!

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)

Gods promises best best

Psalms 145: 9-14

The Lord is good to all;
he has compassion on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you, Lord;
your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
and faithful in all he does,
14 The Lord upholds all who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.

Do you remember in my New Year’s blog January 1, 2013… that I said this is the year to really know and trust in the PROMISES of God?  I just want to remind you of this.  I know many people have already had challenges in these past few weeks.  The word of God says that He (God) is TRUSTWORTHY!!!!  He is FAITHFUL!!!!

If you’re a Christian…your life is already planned out for you.  God has already taken care of you.  Your biggest blessing is that no matter what happens to you…you WILL be OK because Jesus has already won the battle for you.  You have all the help you’re going to need down here on earth and eternal life is already yours and you will have a perfect life after you make your transition from this life.  Everything for us is all good no matter what goes on down here.

This doesn’t mean we are going to enjoy every moment down here.  But we should be comforted in knowing what the above scriptures say about what’s promised to us as God’s children is true and trustworthy.  We should not be walking around in fear…but we should be walking around in faith… faith in a wonder supernatural loving God who adopted us into His very own supernatural family!  (Just want to add this note here…we need to live right…walk with the Lord…pray… and study His word)

So as you face your day today…let’s remember this…God has made promises for you to have a blessed life….walk in that blessing…relax…put your shoulders down….take a deep breath…put your mind on God…His promises…His love for you…the angels that are standing beside you right now, watching over you…the goodness and mercy that are following you…and the Holy Spirit that is inside of your physical body providing all your spiritual needs, support, and comfort.

Message for today:  You are blessed!

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
