Thankfulness

Riding home from church tonight I was texting a friend thanking her for a surprise I found in my pew when I got to church.All of a sudden the car jerked. My family was home sick and only my dad and myself were in the car. I looked up quickly while the car screeched and I screamed.

I seriously thought I had texted my last text, I had gone to my last church service, I had seen my family for the last time on this earth and I was going to my heavenly home. Yes, seriously that all went through my mind. (And no, I am not a drama queen.)

I still can see that large moose at the corner of the car, his antlers illuminated from the headlights. My hand was clutching my phone as I felt my body shake uncontrollably. The moose ran into the woods as I heard my father ask me if I was okay. We started to drive again while my dad started laughing saying he had never seen such a big one.

It's a funny thing though, I was planing on writing a story about something funny that happened in my classroom the other day, but I felt this was a tad bit more important.

It happened so quickly and even though a million thoughts went through my mind in those fleeting seconds, there was one thing I didn't even have to think about. The one thing that covered my whole being like a blanket was that I knew where I was going. I knew I had taken care of my eternity when I was a child and that if I had died tonight I know I would have been in my Saviors arms.

I really honestly have no idea who reads this blog. On my different tracking meters I see different states and countries. I can't even imagine how they found this little blog of mine. But I am glad you have. However, you may be reading this and you may be thinking I want that assurance you had Ginger, I want to know I am going to Heaven when I die.

It is so simple my bloggie friend. Jesus died for every single one of us and He wants you to come to Him. You just need to pray and ask Jesus to forgive you for your sins and ask Him to come and live in your heart. If you do that and believe that only Jesus can save you, you will be saved.

If you want to ask me something about this post or about salvation please don't hesitate to email me piecesofmyheart08@yahoo.com



Thankfulness is a funny thing it can come in a form of a basket on your pew at church or a moose in front of your car. God is good and He is watching over me!
