Heavenward Focus

Heavenward Focus

I was reminded again this week how fragile our lives are with the passing of a dear brother and friend. We will all miss you Merle. We do not know what tomorrow brings. James 4:14 NLT says, How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.


How great it will be; to hear our Savior’s voice say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant, and rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great.” 


Scripture tells us in 1 Cor 2:9 NLT “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”


Revelations 21:7 NLT “All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children. No more sorrow and God will wipe every tear from their eyes. The wall is made of jasper, and the city is made of pure gold, as pure as glass. 


Friends be faithful and endure for we are fragile and will die if Jesus tarries, but because of the salvation of Jesus Christ we will be raised in power and receive a spiritual body just like those who have went before us.
