Though we have
Never seen with our eyes
Like Apostle Paul
Made by the Holy Spirit
We are witnesses of the resurrection Jesus Christ.
We became those who
Witnessed the most shocking event in the history of the universe.
A life that will die and
Return to a handful of dust
Now has a hope to live eternally
In an imperishable body.
To live eternally
Without hunger, pain, aging
In the body that will never die,
In the place where there is
No worry, no fear, no lacking…
So even as I hear the news of
Countless people dying of coronavirus each day
I am so thankful.
The gorgeous flowers of the dogwood tree in front of our house
All blew away in the strong winds
Without being admired even once by their owner.
This life that lives briefly and then washes away
Without anyone’s noticing
The Lord has seen from the beginning and
When it was time called me and
Revealed this incredible truth so I could believe and
Led me to church where there are companions of faith
So I am ever so grateful.
This principle that the Lord fulfilled through His death,
To die once and to live again!
And we know this!
So let us once again make the determination
As we endure this difficult time.
Let us not fear death which we will face once day after all and
Let us not dwell on this flesh that will perish and return to dust after all.
To welcome that glorious resurrection,
If we die, let us die boldly;
If we live, let us live with strength.
