But it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. ~ 2 Timothy 1:10
God promised us life after death, He sent his own son for our sake. Jesus healed the sick and fed the hungry. His greatest gift to us was taking our sins away by dying on the cross. But the story did not end there. He then rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. Jesus destroyed death and gave us all an everlasting life in heaven. By believing in him, we too will someday join him there. Jesus’ actions then give us hope today.
For by the grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, but a gift of God – not by works, so that no one may boast. ~ Ephesians 2:8-9
The world we live in is troubled by sin, but heaven is free from sin. After life on this earth, we are freed to a place of love. This everlasting home will be filled with God’s glory. We will be at peace. We will forever be with all our loved ones in a safe place. Your faith in God is the only ticket to heaven. Grace has set you free. The good works you do are not to “earn your spot.” We do good deeds because we are to live a life like Him.
The Lord rules over the deep waters; he rules as king forever. The Lord gives strength to his people and blesses them with peace. ~Psalm 29:10-11
God knows everything about you. From the color of your eyes to the troubles in your heart. He knows when you are feeling pain. He welcomes you to talk to him through prayer and find peace in the words of The Bible. When you come across tough times in your life, He will be there for you. One of the greatest gifts God has given us is our family and friends. In tough times, find strength in those around you. Always remember how much God loves you.

I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer
As we go our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your Grace
To a place where we’ll be safe
