For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. – Romans 5:10
There are steps we have to take to get to Heaven. It’s all about faith and trust and a whole lot of love. Mostly love coming at us, that all we have to do it pass on. Brilliant, right?
This week, God has been reminding me…
All the losses that I mourn, all the things I can no longer do, all my grief over new hardship. Those are all things I do not need to get in to heaven. And when it comes right down to it… right down to the nitty gritty… that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?
I don’t need to drive.
I don’t need to run (or even walk).
I don’t need to see clearly.
I don’t need to cook.
I don’t need to bend.
I don’t need to clean.
I don’t need to hear well.
I don’t need to speak eloquently.
I don’t need to be able to swallow.
I don’t need to sleep well.
I don’t need to be pain-free.
I don’t need all the answers.
All I need… I mean really need is Jesus. He’s not going anywhere and He’s got my entry fee covered. I think I’ll just rest in that today.
For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus. – 2 Timothy 1:9
Dear Lord, thank You for these reminders. Please grant me peace as I trust in You alone. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
