I find myself asking:
- Has this come about because of the consequences of my choices?
- Is it something that will help me to grow?
- Will it be used to help someone else?
This morning I was reading from His Princess: Love Letters From Your King by Sheri Rose Shepherd. I received this little book several years ago from my blogging friend Jill.
I hope you will be encouraged as you read this love letter.
Did you know that I have prepared a home for you in heaven? It is more beautiful than you can ever imagine. Your eyes have not seen nor have your ears heard the majestic beauty that awaits you. But for now, my chosen one, I need you to learn to see your life with an eternal perspective. When you cross over into heaven, you won't be able to bring anything from your home here on earth. You're only here to bring forth My life-changing news of salvation. Don't collect things; collect people. I have called you to bring others to Me. Remember, no one will grow closer to Me because of what you have. Tell them how much I love them. They need to know about My amazing plans for their lives and about the eternal kingdom that awaits them, too.
Your King and your Eternity Builder
You can sign up to receive these love letters on Sheri Rose Shepherd's website.
Do you have an eternal perspective or are you more focused on the here and now of life?
Blessings and love,
