Next to Forever

Soon to be 78, that’s next to forever.

Therefore, I speak with care knowing words matter. Words are powerful. They can illuminate and medicate the soul with knowledge and healing or darken and poison it with lies and curses. I’m next to forever, so I have asked the Father to make my words a blessing.

“And on that day, you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you. Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full.” (John 16:23-24 NASB)

Truly, truly Jesus is the truth whom I believe. Truth changed me. To believe in Him is to believe what He says. To not believe is to doubt God. That is being double minded without the benefits of faith. (James 1:8, 4:8) “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for the one who comes to God must believe that He exists, and that He proves to be One who rewards those who seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6 NASB)

Simple words, plain and straight forward, reality, just the way it is. If we are uncomfortable with truth, it is because we are meant to change. Truth will always be the same. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8 NASB)
