And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 NIV
Some people live their entire life in limbo and chaos, not quite sure what to believe and stand for. Some people don’t make a decision until on their death bed. Some never make a decision at all. Either you believe or you don’t.
Either you believe in eternal life through God and Jesus Christ, or you don’t. You either believe that God is the only God that can create, remove, re-imagine, heal, complete, birth, and protect—or you don’t.
When I was very young my parents instilled in me the importance of my relationship with my Father and His Son. My dad used to be a Sunday School teacher and leader within our church, and I enjoyed taking part in Bible study with him. He was a believer and follower. Yes, he was human and had faults—but his heart was warm and his intentions were good. Sometimes his transparency and vulnerability allowed others to take advantage of him and our family, but my dad never stopped believing in God’s power and Jesus’s footsteps to make things right.
We have a choice to either accept and embrace God’s Truth or the enemy’s lie.
I truly believe that my dad’s belief in and strong understanding of God and Jesus not only blessed him with eternal life, but also the opportunity to still be a blessing to others even today. His loving presence is still felt by all those who knew him, respected him, appreciated him, and loved him.
I believe that life does not end when I take my last human breath. For I know I am a spiritual being here in human form, experiencing life in a different way so that I can be prepared and learn to appreciate my planned life on the next level.
Our life here on Earth is about lessons, love, embracing and expressing God, our humbleness in our blessings, taking care of the least of God’s children, making decisions, learning from our experiences, touching lives, utilizing our talents and strengths, being receptive and open to others, connecting the dots between the old and wise and the young and wise, and turning knowledge into wisdom that can be passed down generationally. It’s about seeking and knowing the Truth, and being free in this Truth.
God is Father. Jesus is Son.
Father, thank You for this day. Thank You for the light I see and feel. Thank You for my beating heart and other healthy organs. Thank You for my family and friends, and for my spiritual family around the world.
Most importantly, thank You for Your Son Jesus who has been a constant reminder of the way to You. I know that Jesus is the wayshower and Your Truth.
I pray for those who have gone to the next level of existence knowing Jesus as their Savior, and You as their Father-Mother. I pray for Your grace to cover those who transitioned and didn’t believe in You. I pray for those still here on earth living each day confused. I pray that they turn to You and Jesus, and embrace Your blessings with gratitude and humbleness.
I know Who’s child I am. I know Who my leader is. I praise You and Jesus each and every day. Amen.
