Be near Oh Lord, all the days of our life. When we falter, raise us up to walk a new with You again. This life can be tough and we need your help. We experience so many obstacles each day that try to drive us away from you. These temptations are satisfying to the flesh but hurt our soul. We are tired of walking aimlessly, not knowing which way to go. All this does is put a wrench in our heart. It fills us with temporary joy but sorrow thereafter. Your love is greater and we long for it. Come near to us and give us rest. Take our sorrow and bring us to a place of comfort. Lead us to a place where there is only peace. We long for your eternal joy where there is no pain. Your love is powerful and lifts us up to follow You. We all need more of this love in our lives. It is life changing. It leads us to do good. You have a way with us Lord. You know exactly what we need to be truly happy. Our desires to do good is elevated when You are with us. Keep us near always. We know that our time on earth is limited and we want to come out on top. The only way we can know that our life was prosperous is if we can see You with joy in heaven. We believe in You. Your saving grace has touched each of our lives.
It is only through Jesus that we can be saved. Make a promise this day to follow Him. Your time on earth is numbered. No one knows the times and seasons. No one knows the time of our death. We can either prepare and be ready to meet our Maker or be terrified when the time comes. We can either live for Christ or live for the world. There is no in between. All those that believe in Jesus and walk in His ways will be saved. To believe in Jesus means to know Him. Our prayer life needs to be personal with the Lord. If He doesn’t know You then only hell awaits. His promises can be made sure for anyone that follows Him. Don’t wait till the end of your life to repent. How sad it would be if You waited and your life was cut short. Not only would your family be saddened but your soul would be forever in pain. We must honor the Lord to enter His kingdom. It is more valuable than all the diamonds on earth to live in God’s glory. Nothing matches the promises of God. Live for Him and you will one day see the Lord with joy in your heart. He will welcome you in His kingdom. All the angels will shout for joy for you were lost but are found in Jesus. I love You Lord. You are worth living for. I long to be with You.
7 This is the sum of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived: one hundred and seventy-five years.
8 Then Abraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years, and was gathered to his people.
9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite,
10 the field which Abraham purchased from the sons of Heth. There Abraham was buried, and Sarah his wife.
11 And it came to pass, after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac. And Isaac dwelt at Beer Lahai Roi.
