Thinking of the fullness and duration of this wonderful life, W. B. Hinson, a great preacher of a past generation, spoke from his own experience just before he died. He said, “I remember a year ago when a doctor told me, ‘You have an illness from which you won’t recover.’ I walked out to where I live 5 miles from Portland, Oregon, and I looked across at that mountain that I love. I looked at the river in which I rejoice, and I looked at the stately trees that are always God’s own poetry to my soul. Then in the evening I looked up into the great sky where God was lighting His lamps, and I said,” I may not see you many more times, but Mountain, I shall be alive when you are gone; and River, I shall be alive when you cease running toward the sea; and Stars, I shall be alive when you have fallen from your sockets in the great down pulling of the material universe!’ ” There is something eternal about looking at mountains and seas that helps to put our living in perspective.  We were created for breathtaking moments by an omnipotent and gracious God.  The anxieties and stresses of life melt away when we realize how temporary they are in comparison to the destiny of the living soul at home in the presence of God.  Let us not focus on our temporary sufferings but rather on the great deliverance of the eternal creator of the universe.  This is the hope shared by all children of God who realize that every day of life we are a step closer to home where the “welcome” celebration awaits.  Do you know Jesus?  Does He know you?
