There Will Be A Day

    There Will Be A Day when we will all answer for the life we live.


    We have all had our times in this life that we would like it if things had turned out different. Life is so full of ups and downs.

    Times of happiness and times of sorrow. Times of joy and times of grief and broken hearts.

    This life is a far cry from a perfect picture. We do what we can, hang on to our hope that the life after this is going to be peace and harmony.

    God gives us all a choice. He doesn't want anyone to perish.
    But there will be a day when we will all stand before Him and be judged. I myself am hopeful that I will hear, well done my good and faithful servant.

    See, when someone hurts me, I will forgive and ask God to change the heart of a person that is so angry and bitter.

    Seeds of rejection, lost dreams, divorce, abuse, drugs, alcohol,
    hatred, envy, strife. All this stems from roots deep in some of our lives that make us react in ways that would crush others and steals our peace.

    I am thankful that God is very capable to mend broken hearts, restore dreams. Remove any bitterness, resentment, feelings of rejection. It's left up to each one of us to ask Him and believe that He will. Will you continue on this journey with me and except Jesus, ask him to forgive you of your sins and help you to forgive all those that have done wrong to you.
    Let God deal with those people.

    God loves the world so much that he sent His only son to die for our sins. And whoever believes in Him, will not perish but  have eternal life with Him. (John 3:16)

    And then I think of the reward we will receive after this life is over. Peace, sweet peace.

    Isaiah 65:17-25
    Look, I will make a new heavens and a new earth, and people will not remember the past or think about those things. My people will be happy forever because of the things I will make. I will make a new Jerusalem and be delighted with my people. There will never again be heard in that city the sounds of crying and sadness.
    There will never be a baby from that city who lives only a few days. And there will never be an older person who does have a long life. A person who lives a hundred years will be called young, and a person who dies before a hundred will thought to be a sinner.
    In that city those who build houses will live there. Those who plan vineyards will get to eat their grapes. No more will one person build a house and someone else live there. One person will not plant a garden and some one else eat it's fruit. My people will live a long time, as trees live long. My chosen people will live there and enjoy the things they make.
    They will never again give birth to children who die young. All my people will be blessed by the Lord; they and their children will be blessed. I will provide for their needs before they ask, and I will help them while they are still asking for help.

    Wolves and lambs will eat together in peace. Lions will eat hay like oxen, and a snake on the ground will not hurt anyone. They will not hurt or destroy each other on all my holy mountain says the Lord.

    Become a citizen in God's kingdom today by trusting in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Reserve your place in his new creation. You can have permanent hope and eternal life! There is no better way to live than following Him.

    In this world right now the economics is spiraling out of control. Maybe there will be some kind of reprieve. But it want last forever. People are losing there homes, jobs, etc...

    How do you think people are going to react? Stealing and taking lives of others because they can't withstand the pressure. Some are even committing suicide and killing there own loved ones.

    This is not something God did. This is something people did.

    There is so much happening, all over the world.
    God tells us to trust in Him and not be afraid. He will take care of his children.

    I don't know about you but, I am looking for the day when there will be no more pain and no more sorrow.

    I don't want you to think I am trying to beat you over the head with religion. I really just care about people and only want everyone to be able to have a life with the fullness of peace and joy and have no more fear of anything. I love people and want the same things God wants for them. All good things work together for the good for them that love the Lord.

      Bulldust! What has your invisible entity done for mankind?Nothing. There has been no mercy shown by any entity to humanity that I know of.

    You are breathing that is a gift and it is mercy!
    The mercy is because you may have another day to receive the gift that God has given. Eternal life! This isn't all there is. It is so sad to hear or to read the words that you have written! Your heart sounds hard! i don't know what this world has done to make you so bitter but I do know the one that will and can make you a new person and give you the joy that is beyond this world!

    Amazing video, Thank you so much for posting. I love that song. In these last days we will face more hate and mockery than ever before, holdfast, and please don't let the darkness you find here, snuff out your voice of truth. God Bless You. smile

    Deane - I've read many of your posts here. Some are about feeling happy that you are saved. But most are about telling others that they will be judged. You should be asking yourself why you are so fond of relegating most of your fellow creatures to judgment and damnation. Stop enjoying it. It's just not nice, OK?

      I really honestly don't mean to be judgmental. I care very much for people and I know I am not any one special to be judging anyone.

      I think when I write at times I don't realize the way I write things is judging. I have my own issues and I am sure there are many that would judge me for things that they don't agree with, like you do on most everything I write.

      Thanks for your input...I will take it into consideration.

      I am glad you are so smart. You would have known that you had so much knowledge?

    DeaneMC - I'll be honest - your post smacks of propaganda and, as Paraglider said ... judgement.

    And it also begs the question: why are you selective about what God is capable of? From what you have written ... he's capable of mending broken hearts and restoring dreams for eg. But it's nothing to do with God when folk become murderous?

    And ... who minded my crap in life? I don't attend church. I don't pray or perform any kind of worship. As you write, it seems God only works with those who believe and accept. So, who mended me?

    And I'm not mocking you or hating you. I don't mock or hate anyone. I never have. I'm just a little confused. Or maybe I'm just weird.
