Faith Filled Friday: Challenging Days

May 22, 2020

A friend of mine wrote this and her son Jay posted it on Facebook. She gave me her permission to share it on my blog. In these difficult days it is good to know peace at least in one area of our lives, and that is where we will be spending eternity. Have you decided where you want to spend your eternity?  ~ Connie

My Mother-In-Law has been doing some writing during this shutdown and had something she wanted posted to Facebook (She is not on Facebook). She hopes this will be an encouragement to you all. Jay
Challenging Days
Surely this coronavirus pandemic is doing things to our country that we never could have imagined. States on lockdown, parks and beaches closed, businesses being forced to shut down or perform jobs they never planned on.
We are being told to stay home, wash our hands often and thoroughly, sterilize all surfaces, don’t touch our faces, and don’t go out unless absolutely necessary. And, due to some who are hoarding, it is very challenging to find some food items and other essentials.
We ask, or at least wonder, why is this happening to us and to so many multiple thousands around the world? We know the answer. A vicious virus has entered our world and travels wildly, sickening and killing many, many multiple thousands.
Could any good come out of this? Lives lost are never a good thing – not even one. That is absolutely tragic.
But on the news I hear that much is being learned. The medical community is learning how to better handle a crisis like this, how to be better prepared, and possibly how to shorten the duration and lessen the severity. This is hopeful and encouraging.
Could any other good come out of this? We humans are creatures of comfort. When all is well, we sail along with little to no thought about what is really important. But our comfort is disturbed, and even lost, when the brevity and uncertainty of life stares us in the eye. And then we wonder ——
What happens to us after we die? Where will we spend eternity?
Can we choose our eternal destiny?
Eternity never ends so it’s vital to make the right choices.
Other concerns that destroy our peace:
If I get this virus, will I live through it?
If I survive, will my lungs be so damaged that I’ll suffer the rest of my life?
Could my life end soon? Then what?
The Bible says in James 4:14 “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
Hebrews 9:27 tells us that after death comes judgement.
Romans 3:23 says “All have sinned” and Romans 6:23a says “The wages of sin is death…”
II Corinthians 6:2 says “Now is the day of salvation.
Romans 10:13 “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
Yes, we can, and we must, choose our eternal destiny. Heaven or Hell, the choice is ours. If Heaven is the choice, we must admit that we’re sinners in need of the Savior.
Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross in your place and paid in full the penalty of your sins.
Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus and ask Him to come into your life and save you.
HE will give you a brand new, completely forgiven life and when this life ends you will enjoy eternity with Him.
No more sin, no more sickness or pain, no more heartaches or death. Just life forevermore with complete joy and peace.
If Hell is the choice, just do nothing. But it is a choice!
