Lasting Investments

Growing up I was always looking for something bigger. A greater meaning. You know like they say, “More than this.”

But now at 30 years old I know why. I see clearly know why I have always longed for more, for something else.

This world is not my home. My body wasn’t created for the clothing of this planet or its ideal woman body type and swimsuit figure.

There’s music running through my veins, songs that I can’t sing here…because I don’t know all the words. Once a Christian is living in Heaven in the new incorruptible body, there’s no sin, nor any mortal limits. I have the dance inside of me, but I can’t perform it out in the mortal body I currently operate in.  My body is not me. The body does not reflect who I am. My spirit does. The way I treat other human beings, the way I spend my time, the words I choose when I speak. What’s actually in my heart.

Kindness trumps being a single digit jean size at every moment.

When I was a kid I always heard adults say that it’s what’s on the inside that counts. I thought they were out of their mind and just trying to make us all feel better. I was wrong. Friend, it really IS what’s on the inside that counts.

Because it’s what is inside of you that LIVES ON eternally.

Believe it or not, you are a spirit being. You just have a temporary, mortal body of flesh for now. There are 2 eternal worlds.

It seems like so many people live their lives on fast forward in today’s world. They work overtime to pay the bills, the rent/mortgage and try to do the best they can. Looking forward to the summer vacation (if they are financially able to do so), and counting on that 401K unawares to the future ahead.  And it is all temporal.

Houses break and need fixing. Vacations don’t last and neither do the souvenirs. Make memories… Invest in the lives of your children, families, or spouse.  Investments like those are everlasting. The good things we leave behind us when we go are later exchanged for Heavenly rewards and Crowns. We are saved by Grace through faith, but we can’t harbor hatred and ill feelings toward others inside. We are to love others and love God with all our hearts. The first time I heard that, I was like uh-oh!!! I had some envy and bitterness, a few grudges on my back. I believed in my heart there was NO WAY I could possibly love EVERY one! Later on as I walked with Jesus, I found that we must, and we can!

Ezekiel 36:26-27 (KJV)

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

 

We just have to ask God The Father for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, for Him to change us because we can’t do it ourselves. I have a new nature right now because of HIS work. I TRULY had stone in my heart! But Jesus made me new!!! If there’s something that you believe is just impossible to change or overcome, it is..without Jesus. Come to Christ today and find peace and healing. Find Salvation for eternity at The Cross 🙂

You are loved more than you could ever know by God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The Rapture is about to happen any moment now. Jesus is taking His Church out before the 7 year Tribulation. We are at the end of the story of man.
