Words cannot fully explain the love of God. If each human being were a writer by trade, the sky above our writing pad and the ocean the ink; we would write and drain the ocean dry and the love of God would not be fully explained. Yes I am over shadowed by heavenly love.
6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Those who live their lives in Christ and walk with God, are earnestly look forward to the day when heaven will become their eternal home. God has made it possible for each one of us to have have our little spot in that beautiful place called heaven. Whatever you may want to call it; Canaan's Land, Land of Bliss, Beulah Land, Home of the soul, my soul is longing for that place. One thing I do know, a place that is being prepared for almost 2000 years, must be beautiful.
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
Prayer is coming to God, pouring out our hearts in fervent desire and faith, and leaving the outcome to the Lord as He most wisely and lovingly sees best. God will answer on His terms and own time. Prayer is the best medicine for a burdened soul.
“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually wear me out with her coming!’” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
