Lord, I know you are aware because You know all things. But I feel the need to tell you, my Lord, that I have never been this way before.
I remember when I was a little girl how simple life was. I wasn't raised in a "Faith-based" home. It was considered what most would call a dysfunctional home. But I did have peace most of my life, just many needs that a large family could not supply. Like unwavering love for each of us ten children, food that was sparse, and sometimes troubling financial needs.
Now, there is a real need for peace that NO ONE seems to be able to have.
So, I ask you, Lord, when does it get better? When do we who have trusted You as our Lord and Savior, Our great Redeemer, get to go home?
I can remember as a small girl, standing with my parents in a Veteran cemetery and looking at all those grave markers. I actually was very afraid when they shot with guns over the top of my grandpa's grave site as a way of a salute I was told.
Now that I've grown and into my elderly years, and thankfully have understood from being in a gospel-preaching church, and have taken You Jesus as my own personal savior, I look at the many grave sites and know from your Bible scriptures that one day, I pray soon, those dead bodies will come out of that grave.
I know we have read in scripture that at the Rapture, the sound of the trumpet, the dead in Christ will rise first and we that remain shall be caught up to meet them in the air.
That's made clear in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
But, Lord I also read in John 5:28-29 that all the bodies will come out of the graves. Some to everlasting life and their home in heaven, but some to stand before the
" Great White Throne Judgement. Revelations 20:11-15
That's so troubling to me as your truly born-again child. John 3:7 Because if some in those graves are not your born-again child then they will not enter Heaven.
They will stand before the Great White Throne Judgement. Found in Revelations 20:11-15.
And what is so sad to me is that they did many things in the church, they maybe sang in the church choir, or was a deacon, but Lord, as you have them stand before the Great White Throne Judgement, You say, Depart from me, I never knew you. They never trusted in you as their Savior.
So Lord, even though I am saddened to live in these troubling times, I am so grateful that You called me to You and I trusted You as my sin redeemer, you became my personal Savior. Thank you for dying for my sins.
Now my prayer to You; is to please help those reading, those that need You as their Savior, before it's too late, understand, seek out someone to help them understand that You are the way the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through the Son. John 14:6
Thank you my Lord Jesus for letting me seek the knowledge to understand and become one of your sin-bought children. I John chapter 5:11-13 as I read in the wee hours of the night opened my eyes to this truth. Now, I long for YOU, and Heaven is on my mind.
