Looking forward to it

I used to have a set of greeting cards to send to people. They said, “Having a rough day? God will make a way.” So applicable right now. My life is technically proceeding really well, but I am going to have to cling to the promises of God. I get afraid of being alone sometimes, which is understandable; but odd since I am as unalone as I have ever been.

Occasionally I remind myself of the worst case scenario for my life. I wrote it down during quiet time tonight. Then wrote down the promises of God. The worst case scenario is dying under a bridge from starvation, then going to spend eternity with Jesus. When I put it like that, it is not so bad.

The promises of God were pretty sweet: eternal life, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The Holy Spirit is a deposit on the promise of eternal life. I am thankful for Him.

There are so many promises in my life that have yet to be fulfilled. Sometimes I wonder if I dreamed He promised them to me. I did not write them down next to the ones found in the Bible. I was afraid I had dreamed them. I did not want to see them on paper. It felt too painful. Tonight I want to go home because heaven is safe and earth does not feel at all that way.

It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned us, and he has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything he has promised us. – 2 Corinthians 1:21-22
