Like a Lazy River on a Warm Spring Day

Now that’s peaceful!

Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. Isaiah57:2

We walk uprightly, not because of anything we do, but because we love God. When we turn our lives and hearts over to God, He instills His love and righteousness in us, which allows us to do the things He needs us to do. When we focus on loving God—when it is our first priority—we enter into His peace. We can rest in that peace, knowing God is in charge and will guide our steps.

We can also be at peace knowing the worst that can happen to us may actually be the best that can happen to us. I know not all of you can agree with my philosophy regarding death, but I am convinced death is not to be feared. When we leave these earthly bodies, we will put on a new and perfect body—one that knows no pain or disease. I don’t know what heaven will be like—no one does—but I know it will be more awesome than anything we can imagine.

That’s how God is—more awesome, more wonderful, more loving than we can imagine. I believe if we make loving Him the most important thing in our lives, we will know peace…. peace like a lazy river on a warm spring day.
