It’s a wonderful life.

“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you  life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” Deut. 30:19

    It’s a wonderful life.  Even though we may go through trials here, serving God by believing in Jesus, is worth it.  Since I found out that I had died in February, life has a different feeling than before it happened.  Things that use to bother or stress me don’t seem nearly so bad.  After all, they will pass away, and I have a promise from God that He will never leave me nor forsake me.  I have thought a lot about the reason I came back.  There is a purpose for me to fulfill.  I can’t say what it is, but I will know one day.  Today I am alive.  I am to take no thought for tomorrow; for it will take thought for itself.

    I am here now because of God’s grace and a woman’s faith.  LaVerne never saw me dead even though she held my lifeless body in her arms.  She counted God’s Word as faithful and never doubted.  I know that many good people have trusted God to restore a loved one, and it didn’t happen.  I don’t have the answer as to why, but you never stop trusting God’s word until the trial is over.  Remember, “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”  As believers, whether we live or die we are the Lord’s.   Pastor Jerry
