What is going to happen to your soul, your spirit, when you die? That question may seem tired, but often it’s enough to splinter into the brain and make a home there. My hope is that I’ve just splintered your brain. And put out a welcome mat. I want this thought to never leave you. I want you to inquire and explore and pray and strain until you find your answer. I want you to be restless until you have peace about your inevitable mortal destiny. Whoa.

The Word. God’s Word (the B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me). It’s alive. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Hebrews 4:12-13). Open, read it and you’ll see. Once you begin to spend real time with the living Word of God, you will just know He’s watching you. And then you’ll know He’s guiding you. The Word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path (Psalm 119:105). God uses His Word to speak. Are we making the time to open our ears (our eyes, our minds, our hearts) to invite the conversation? He has a lot to say.
“The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether.” -Psalm 19:7-11
Perfect, restoring, sure, wise, right, rejoicing, pure, enlightening, clean, enduring, true, righteous. My God is an awesome God.
