My Widow's Journey
Welcome to My Widow's Journey, a unique blog from the heart of a widow.
On September 25th, 2020 I became a widow after being married for 32 years. Now trying to figure out what to do with my life, I felt compelled at trying to create a journey where others like me could follow. I am sure there are many who have traveled this road and know much more than myself, but maybe sharing my story could help just one person.
Join me as I travel unchartered waters while letting Christ be my Captain. My prayer is that you may find some comfort, someone to relate to, and somehow a way to press on.
Are YOU sure you would go to Heaven?
If you died right now, do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven? There are four things that you must know to go to Heaven:
Everyone is a sinner. Romans 3:23 tells us "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. We have all disobeyed God's commandments. Everyone that has ever lived has sinned, except Jesus Christ.
There is a price that must be paid for sin. In Romans 6:23 we find, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. The price of sin is death and that death means separation from God forever in Hell. This is the wages or "payment that we deserve for our sin.
Jesus paid the price for our sins. Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth His love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins and thus proved His love for us.
All you need to do is trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and ask Him to save you. Romans 10:9-10, 13 tells us what we must do: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved ... For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. All you have to do is accept the free gift of eternal life by praying to Jesus and asking Him to save you.
Do you believe that you are a sinner? Do you believe that if you died without Christ as your Savior you would go to Hell? Do you believe Jesus died for you? Do you believe Jesus will save you if you ask Him?
If you answered "yes to all of these questions, just bow your head and pray. Tell Jesus you are a sinner, you are sorry for your sins, and ask Him to come into your life.
