Faith and Facebook Messages…

19 Mar

Hey everyone, sorry it’s felt like I’ve abandoned you lately… I haven’t! I promise!

Life’s just been busy, and stressful–more so than usual–and I haven’t had the time nor motivation to blog. But, here I am!

Yesterday, one of my friends Facebook messaged me. Three simple words: Hold to eternity. I’ve been really stressed, and generally just kind of “eh” lately…not going into details. But let me tell you, those three simple words brought a smile to my face. Hold to eternity. Even when it feels like I’m completely alone, or the world is, as another put it, just “grey,” I know in my heart that God will never leave me, or stop caring about me. When I feel out of place in this world, I think it is a longing for a better one–heaven, and the life that is yet to come. Take your best memory. Now times it by infinity, and then infinity again, and again, and again… that’s heaven. We can’t even comprehend how amazing it’s going to be.

Three words. Three words that gave me hope. You know who you are, and I want to say thank you for letting God use you to help me through this.

Readers, even when life is at its bleakest, remember your savior, Jesus Christ, and what he did for you. Think of the happiness that awaits us in heaven.

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. ~Revelation 21:4

Think about that for a minute. A time with no more pain, no more death, no more mourning. We can hold out until then.

Hold to eternity.

    Thanks for this so much! I really needed it a lot. I’ve been feeling down too (I’m actually getting ready to write a post about it) and this helped! I hope you’re doing well! 🙂

    Hold to eternity. 🙂 I love that! It’s so simple… yet so profound.


    Oh and no prob about how long you’ve been away! You’re a much more frequent blogger than I am… I used to be once a week.. and then like you I no longer have the time and/or motivation to blog. :/

    Loved your description of heaven. Even our richest memory doesn’t compare to what we will some day experience in our real home. Keeping that in the forefront of my mind helps me through my every day. Praying for your every day and trust you will overcome.

I love to get feedback, so please, comment away!!!
