Not only does God shepherd us in our everyday now, He became Jesus to open the gate to eternity. He promises to not just be here with us here on earth, taking care of our every moment and need, but to also lead us into the great unknown after life. He promises it will be better than anything we can envision. And how could it not be? God is so vast and powerful. The mere thought of being in His presence is overwhelming right here in life. I am filled with gratitude thinking that He is with me here and I can’t even see Him. How can I imagine the extravagance of meeting Him face to face and being invited to stay right next to Him?
Yes, I will walk through that gate. I will wait on this side expectantly. I will stay at the gate, doing what I need to do, waiting for passage. I will follow.
