Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth...

I want to share a story with you about my Gram..

Gramma’s kitchen always seamed like a saft haven… an secret hiding place to go, to feel at home. Her home was a glimpse of what our true home will feel like… what she is feeling right now… Her permanent home…

GRANDMA’S HEARTS DESIRE IN LIFE WAS TO SERVE THE LORD

Do you know what B.I.B.L.E. stands for??? Gramma did… B.I.B.L.E. stands for *B*asic *I*nstructions *B*efore *L*eaving *E*arth…

She lived the Bible, never judging others… she loved unconditionally to all.. her favorite saying is “God loves everyone, so you do the same.” I can hear her saying it now. She had compassion… showed kindness & peace… was gentle & comforting to all, at all times… she was patient in all circumstances… accepting of all & forgiving of all.. and she ADORES her savior Jesus Christ. She drew strength, wisdom, and her selflessness from HIM.
What more can a person want from life.. she TRUELY was the riches person I knew. I only pray that each & everyone of us can take one thing from her and aplly it in their lives daily, & like the movie “Pay it Forward”. Gram’s sole purpose & hearts desire is that we would all be together again one day… and we can be, if we took those little seeds that she planted in our hearts… nourish it & let it grow into what your prpos here on earth was intended to be.
She was the perfect model of GOD’S LOVE & what we are to be.
Open the eyes of your hear. It is the little things in life that we can take with us that matters. Not the riches of silver or gold.. It is the riches of crowns of Glory that makes us rich. She is being crowned right now with many a crowns…
“We need to BE a Blessing, to Get a Blessing.”
I thought I would visit her often in the nursing home so she wouldn’t be alone… for her own good, but it was for MY own good now that I look back at all the times we spent together.. she was never alone, she truely had Jesus in her heart & that is what attracted us to her.
If a stranger comes knocking at your door, in the middle of the night, and you are alone with NO protection, are you going to let him in? I think it is safe to say.. probably not!!! Well, there is going to come a day when you are going to be knocking at the door of heaven… IS God going to know you? Did you get to know HIM here on earth??? Don’t let it be too late…

I promised my Gramma I will be with her again…
*B*asic *I*nstructions *B*efore *L*eaving *E*arth…Learn it… love it.. but most of all LIVE IT. My Gramma use to say, “What good is knowing the Bible if you aren’t gonna live it?”. She lived it!
I also remember her saying “My legs… they won’t go…” Well for someone who’s legs wouldn’t go, she won the race… She finally made it to the finish line!!
Gram knew her purpose on earth was to be a servant of God… Well done Gram!!
Do you know your purpose?? It is basicly simple…

I AM CRUSIFIED WITH CHRIST.. NEVER THE LESS, I LIVE… NOT I, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME…. THE LIFE THAT I NOW LIVE IN THE FLESH, I LIVE FOR THE SON OF GOD WHO LOVED ME AND GAVE HIM SELF FOR ME…
THAT, MY FRIEND, IS LIVING THE BIBLE.
IT IS OUR INSTRUCTIONS GLA. 2:20
