Alternate Reality

Last week, a very special and precious young lady, the daughter of faithful missionary friends of mine passed away suddenly in a tragic car accident.

The following day I went to work and found out a young co-worker’s husband passed away unexpectedly, leaving her and two year old child behind.

Both tragedies left my mind spinning and my heart rend.

I realize an alternate reality is just a step away.

Heaven.

Earth is not our home. We are just pilgrims passing through.

The Bible says, our citizenship is in Heaven. (Philippians 3:20)

2 Corinthians 5:1-8 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

We think we have tomorrow, but tomorrow may never come. Tomorrow is not promised.

So do we lose heart or hope?  God forbid. Our hope is in Christ. Christ in us, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)

As we traverse the earth, the kingdom of God is within us.

We live in an alternate reality.

In a split second, we cross the veil and into eternity.

As children of God, we live in two worlds simultaneously.

Our flesh is on earth and our spirits in Heaven. Two realms colliding.

The time we have here is unknown, but as carriers of His glory, we must live in this truth.

For what is unseen is more real than what we see.

We must live each day as if it’s our last and shine the love of God. Shedding hope and love abroad man’s hearts wherever we go.

My dream is for revival.

I have been praying for the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit to touch those who don’t know Jesus in a life changing way.

His love and kindness leads us to repentance. (Romans 2:4)

If we are alive, our purpose is to live for Him, serve Him and lead others to Him.

In memory and honor of those who recently crossed over, I am even more determined to live my life passionately for the cause of Christ.

In conclusion, I want to share a song which has been ministering to me. I hope it blesses you.

Do you want to live a life surrendered to Jesus Christ? Do you want to be used for His glory? Do you want lead others to Jesus?

    Praying for you for comfort in the loss of your friends. So happy I met you on this earth, before we get to sing every day with Jesus.

    Beautiful, just beautiful. It’s true, we must live every day as if it were our last, because one of these days it will be. Hey, I worked a Compassion event where Fee was the headliner and met them, they were so nice.
