We struggle with so many issues in life.
Divorce, death of loved one, loss of a job, eviction, health
issues, money gone, and the list goes on.
We get prayer request after prayer request in essence saying,
what do I do after (fill in the blank)?
Some things are never easy, I don’t care how much faith you
have. Some things are just tough but it helps to understand the
“life after” equation.
In math, to prove a theorem the standard rule is to put an
extremely large number in the equation and see if the equation
still holds true. If it does, then you put an extremely small
number in and check that.
What seems to be the biggest thing we can possibly face?
What is most people’s idea of the greatest tragedy?
Some may argue the point but by and large, death will win hands
down. It’s the biggie.
Plug it into the equation.
It may sound morbid to some but I actually look forward to it.
I’m not rushing it, I’m doing my best to stay in health but
neither am I dreading it.
Because I believe it’s better on the other side provided that
you go to the right side.
The answer that you get when you plug in the biggest seeming
disaster will influence how you view all of the other seemingly
smaller disasters along the way to the big one.
Often we get the wrong answer to the “life after” question
because we really haven’t resolved within our spirits the real
“life after” question.
