Eternal Life - Daily in Your Presence - Dec. 29

Day 364


He is the true God

and eternal life.

 1 John 5:20 

My child, eternal life begins not just when you step across death's threshold, but rather, the moment you let Me step into your heart forever. I am eternal life. I am your forever hope. When your physical body finally says goodbye, and you walk into your new heavenly body, you will experience in full measure the taste of joy you had while on earth. No more sorrow, no more tears. If you know Me, you have eternal life.

Some say life begins at forty, while others believe eighteen is the magic age. (Some senior citizens will argue for sixty-five!) But real life, eternal life, began for me the moment You entered my heart years ago. Lord, You are eternal life. You are my home forever.


Life begins with Jesus.
