Jesus destroyed death! When I was a little girl, the thought of death scared me so badly. I didn’t want to die. Now I’m grown up, and I can’t honestly say that I want to die (I have lots of things to live for!), but the idea of of dying no longer frightens me. I know where I’m going. I know Who is waiting for me with open arms. On the day I leave my earthly shell, I will see my Savior face to face. Tears sting as I consider that glorious moment of thanking Jesus personally for redeeming me and loving me in spite of my many failings. Eternity awaits those who believe! God planned the means of accessing Heaven–through the grace of Jesus Christ–from the beginning of time. Death isn’t to be feared. In God’s perfect timing for us, we will see our Father and we will live with Him forever and ever and ever. That is a cause for celebration.
