When we lose a loved one, there is a void that impacts us emotionally for a long time. People we love become part of us. Our thoughts, feelings and actions have all been influenced by them. They have intimately become a part of us and when they die a part of us dies too. It takes time to say goodbye, even though they have gone on to a peaceful eternity. As we remember them, they continue to inspire our journey ahead.

Our final passage from this world is preceded by the beginning and end of many seasons. We are birthed out of one season and into the next. There are many chapters from womb to eternity and sometimes it's like death when a season ends. God has prepared you through it for a new beginning. In this time of transition, pray, believe, and watch for what God has in store for you. A new season approaches, are you ready?

Dying in this dimension of life is inevitable. We have been promised much gain in eternity, and yet we remained focused on current dimension living. Jesus takes the sting of death away and leads us to the place where our hearts deepest desires are satisfied both here and forever. The Living Word removes the fear of life and death. Abide in Him with no worries for tomorrow and the joy that each new day brings.

No one can change you and you can’t really change anyone else. Acknowledge your need for change and believe in the God who empowers you for change. Negative behavior does not promote life but listening to God's still small voice can direct you towards a refreshed life for you. Issues do not just go away unintentionally. Look at what you must change and walk with God towards His new life for you.

When we enter alone into the presence God, we discover how dependent we are. When we are not busy with life and needed by others we can sometimes feel anxious and insignificant. So we become busy again to feel valued by self and others. Our significance is not in how people respond to us or how much we can do. Only God's love for us in who we are can bring significance beyond what we do, or what others may think.

The "Agape Road" is often the road less traveled when it should be the road most traveled for God's people. We have been given so much love from God and He has given us the keys to Kingdom life. We have been given much and therefore much is required of us. The good news is that He is with us, and empowers us to do all that He has required for us to do. His love fuels our desire to walk with Him on His narrow road.

Church is the people of God, called out from self and into fusion with God Almighty in bringing His Kingdom glory to earth. We are called from slavery to freedom, despair to hope, darkness to light, manifesting to the world as His children and empowered by His Majestic Spirit. We must envision people of all ages, races, and societies supporting one another while establishing His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
