For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. —1 Thessalonians 4:14
Can we trust God when we’re facing death? Death is frightening! But the truth is the more we trust God with the circumstances of our life, the easier we’ll find it to trust Him with the circumstances of our death.
My husband, Robert, had a drama teacher in college who used to say: “If you practice well, you’ll perform well!”
The key to experiencing peace in the final pages of our life on earth is to practice. As we learn to trust God in the earlier chapters of our lives, we’ll find that He can be trusted to write each chapter of our story, even death.
God has already planned each of our days, including the day of our death. One of these days, our earthly story will end, but when we turn the last page and put the book down, we’ll get to meet the Author face-to-face! Talk about a happy ending!
Make it Personal
How can we practice now to prepare for the day when we will see Jesus face-to-face?
