Today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will discuss something I dreamt about.
When I awoke last Saturday morning, a couple of things surprised me. They were on my heart and mind, resonating within me.
I had actually dreamt of a cousin of mine, who I haven't seen for a long time. And, her mom. Being my aunt, she is actually my dad's sister.
Something made me wonder if she is okay, or not. Or, if possibly she passed away. Hopefully, not.
You see, after I authored the book, Love Never Fails You... I sent copies to my dad's siblings. Plus, some other relatives.
This aunt was angry that I had written something about her brother, my dad. At the time, it was obvious to me that she hadn't finished reading the whole book.
If she had, she would have seen that I wrote that I had not tried to do or say anything that was hurtful about him, or anyone else. And, she would have read that I was only discussing some hurtful issues of my life, so that readers could understand that I truly did suffer. Forgive. And, love.
Unfortunately, I don't have contact with some of my family. With others, not too much.
Some of this is due to distance between us.
But truthfully, some of my relatives that I have most contact with, live extremely far away from me.
It seems that those who are closer to our Lord, Jesus Christ, who are trusting in Him and in Him alone, have a much better relationship with me.
This truly doesn't surprise me, because we who are closer, are children of the Lord. Children who look to Him, daily and honour Him.
Just as what we read, in Psalm 127:3, "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
Hallelujah! We who belong to Him, are heritage of the Lord!
We who trust in Him, are the fruit of the womb. His reward.
After all, He came to earth in the form of man, even though He was God, the Son.
He suffered, and was crucified.
He didn't have to go through this. He could have left this earth, any time He wanted to.
But, He didn't.
He stayed here, to fulfill God the Father's plan of redemption. The plan that He created so that everyone living on the earth, would have a way of obtaining salvation. A plan, that would allow them to have eternal life.
Friend, if you are not in a relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ, please know I pray for you. I pray that all who have not obtained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, will come to Him, today.
Tomorrow, may be too late.
Until next time...
