Devotion about Living Forever – Because We Do… 28DEC

Interesting duplications… while I’m thinking about my health, and also 2 friends funerals today, my Facebook reminded me of the anniversary of my aunt’s death… a devotion, that I posted then, reminds us that Jesus is calling for us to live forward with Him – FOREVER…

This devotion from a little 1950s book hits it on the head – we are living creatures and we keep living after death…  Additionally, my scripture reading this morning was about Jesus raising Jarius’ daughter…

Was all my reading about death? – but really it is all about life! Think longest term – FOREVER…

Jarius’ daughter reminds me of my awakening AND reminds me to not fall asleep in my faith now…. stay awake in faith forever… Thinking about living forever changes your perspective… we are to live for today, not worry about tomorrow, and be alive forever…  By worrying about today, we should not have time to worry about tomorrow – it’s up to us to make that our mantra!

My sorrow for today’s pain, my hope for forever… my goal to stay awake in my faith…

Just like the woman touching the fringe of Jesus robes, our faith today heals us for living forever.    IT’S OUR FAITH, Jesus always reminds us, which makes things happen…

My prayers are for everyone to believe that too…

Jesus Raises a Dead Girl and Heals a Sick Woman (Matthew 9)

18 While he was saying this, a synagogue leader came and knelt before him and said, “My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.” 19 Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples.

20 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. 21 She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”

22 Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart,daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

23 When Jesus entered the synagogue leader’s house and saw the noisy crowd and people playing pipes, 24 he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. 25 After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up. 26 News of this spread through all that region.
