It has been more than five months since this question brought me to a dead stop and began rumbling around in my mind. What would I want to be said of me when I have been taken home to walk His streets of gold and lovingkindness?
Today the answer finally arrived:
The Love of Christ Compels Her
So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:1-9
Bloom where you are planted. For even if you are seen as a weed of little value, with the proper perspective, you increase the beauty of creation when you let the light of the Lord shine forth to be a contrast to those around you.
