Luke 20:35,36 (KJV)
35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

Oh Lord, I am grateful just to know You and to know that I am led by the one true God who saves. There is no more questioning things and wondering what is right and what is wrong any more.

And what is sad is that I would bear my testimony of the things I knew, in order to have true Christians stop trying to teach me. It was me blocking them out, when You were only trying to use these messengers to convict me of my sins. I was so lost and could not even see it.
