‘But those who die in the LORD will live;
their bodies will rise again!
Those who sleep in the earth
will rise up and sing for joy!
For your life-giving light will fall like dew
on your people in the place of the dead!’ (Isaiah 26:19 NLT)
This is the promise we keep … the believer’s assurance. Just being here, open and ready is worth all the dirty laundry you can throw at me.
I’d rather be here, be alive, feel deeply the pain and the thrills of life than be one of those who’s eyes are vacant, blank from living life on the surface without reaching deeper into the crevices of the soul to touch the trust of the Savior.
