I read that our beautiful Sun will literally burn out in about 5 billion years (give or take a year). You probably haven’t thought about it, prepared for that event, or even care. Its so far into the future we can’t wrap our minds around it. I just wanted to let you know that when the Sun does, in fact, burn out I know that I will be alive. In fact, not only will I be alive I can even tell you where I’ll be and what I’ll be doing. I have a hope and a future that stretches way beyond my own lifetime on this earth and it’s all because of what Jesus has done for me.
Jesus said He was preparing a place for me. He is preparing a place and He is coming back so that where “I am, you will be also.” (John 14:3) He promises eternal life to all who believe. (John 3:16) Who is this Jesus that I put so much trust in? He is the One who died in my place to pay for my sins. He is the One who raised Himself from the dead to show He is even more powerful then death itself. My faith is firmly placed, and my hope is in knowing Him. (John 17:3).
Maybe you have lost hope in the future because you have believed the pain you are feeling right now is always going to be there. You believe things are never going to get better. This is the lie Satan will tell you all day long if you will believe it, but God wants you to have hope from your despair. He wants you to live a life of joy. Put your faith in Him and watch your hope rise!
