When I need to fix my eyes on the hope of eternity
ETERNAL GOD AND SAVIOR, -For a prisoner on death row, a pardon offers hope of freedom. I was once a spiritual prisoner facing eternal death because of my sin. You have given me the ultimate hope of freedom by forgiving my sins so I can one day be with you forever in heaven. How can I thank you enough? When my life here and now seems impossible, you give eternal hope. Without hope, I could not persevere through the rough times. I would give up. As I walk through this life, may I fix my eyes on eternity. May I never forget where I am headed, and why there in no better place to be. For in heaven I will live in perfect relationship with you and others forever, with no pain or sorrow or suffering. What joy! Please help me to move straight ahead toward that goal. As I do, I know I’ll gain a better perspective on the struggles and discomforts of this life. This isn’t just for me, it’s for everyone, God has no prejudice. Hallelujah!
1PETER 1:3-6- All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance-an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation….There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure trials for a little while.
May the Lord continue to bestow his wonderful blessings upon all of you, God bless.
