I can say without a doubt I'm going to heaven when I die, and I have no fear in regards to dying. Made out my will Oct of 2000 and planned out my funeral Nov 2000. What I want to wear, songs to be played and final statement to friends and family. Ex always said I had to have last word. LOL
Told my boys back in 2001, "If and when I die do not be angry at God." 12 year old said, "Mom, it's not IF, it's when, cause we are all going to die." I said, OK you're right, so IF I go before you try not to be too sad! LOL
My diagnosis has been a blessing. It awakened me to the fact that today may be, and always could have been, the last day of my life. True for everybody, with or without 'the diagnosis', it's just most people don't think about it.
Now that we've been slapped in the face with the reality that we were born to die we can LIVE! Each and everyday to its fullest.
Do you know for certain where you are going after you die?
If you have any doubt dust off the Bible ladies, that Book hasn't been around for 2003 years for nothing. Any question you have can be answered with Scripture...I tell you this because I care.
More Than A Carpenter by Josh McDowell is a great book to read. The author set out to disprove Christ as the Messiah. Guess who is a Christian now?
If you're going to talk about death and dying you gotta be able to mention heaven and hell. That's what's on the other side of the grave.
If you know Christ as your Savior this won't offend you.
I pray none have been offended. God bless. hummb
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of their testimony;
and they loved not their lives unto the death.
