I want to share a
story with you about my Gram..
kitchen always seemed like a safe haven… an secret hiding place to go,
to feel at home. Her home was a glimpse of what our true home will feel
like… what she is feeling right now …
Her permanent home…
GRANDMA’S HEART'S DESIRE IN LIFE WAS TO SERVE THE LORD
Do you know what B.I.B.L.E. stands for??? Gramma did… B.I.B.L.E. stands
*Instructions B*efore *Leaving E*arth…
*lived the Bible, never judging others… she loved unconditionally to
all.. her favorite saying is “God loves everyone, so you do the same”.
I can hear her saying it now. She had compassion… showed kindness
peace… was gentle & comforting to all, at all times… she was
patient in all circumstances… accepting of all & forgiving of
and she ADORES her Savior Jesus Christ. She
drew strength, wisdom, and
her selflessness from HIM. What more can a person want from life ...
TRULY was the richest person I knew. I only pray that each &
everyone of us can take one
thing from her and apply it in their lives
daily, & like the movie “Pay it Forward”. Gram’s sole
heart's desire is that we would all be together again one day … and we
if we took those little seeds that she planted in our hearts …
nourish it & let it grow into what
your purpose here on earth
intended to be.
She was the perfect model of GOD’S LOVE &
what we are to be. Open the eyes of your heart. It is the little things
in life that we can take with us that matters. Not the riches of silver
or gold.. It is the riches of crowns of Glory that make us rich. She is
being crowned right now with many a crowns… “We need to BE a Blessing,
to Get a Blessing.”
I thought I would visit her often in the nursing
home so she wouldn’t be alone… for her own good, but it was for MY own
good now that I look back at all the times we spent together..
she was never alone, she truly had Jesus in her heart & that is
what attracted us to her.
a stranger comes knocking at your door, in the middle of the night, and
you are alone with NO protection, are you going to let him in??? I
think it is safe to say.. probably not!!! Well, there is
going to come
a day when you are going to be knocking at the door of heaven …
God going to know you??? Did you get to know HIM here on earth??? Don’t
let it be too late …
I promised my Gramma I will be with her again…
*Instructions B*efore *Leaving E*arth…Learn it… love it.. but most of
all *LIVE IT.
My Gramma use to say, “What good is knowing the Bible if
you aren’t gonna live it?”. She lived it!
I also remember her saying
“My legs… they won’t go…” Well for someone who’s legs wouldn’t go,
won the race… She finally made it to the finish line!!
Gram knew her purpose on earth was to be a servant of God… Well done
Do you know your purpose?? It is basicly simple…
am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ
liveth in me: and the life which
I now live in the flesh I live by the
faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20 (KJV)
THAT, MY FRIEND, IS
LIVING THE BIBLE.
IT IS OUR INSTRUCTIONS
