When I die do not mourn

When I die do not cry

When I die do not be depressed

When I die do not leave the faith

When I die hold onto God’s Word

Hold onto that book called the Bible

When I die I’ll be in paradise

I’m going to finish the race strong, with you...or you against me. And it will fill me with joy to see you there. Fill me with joy...so much joy... oh so much joy...just so much joy. I don’t want to hear of you being in hell I want to see you in Heaven. I don’t want to hear God say to you, “I don’t know you.”

So I’ll challenge you with this question the same question God asked Peter. “But who do you say that I am?”

So, who do you say Jesus is? If you can’t answer that maybe you haven’t thought about it enough maybe it’s your time to think about it. Please don’t give me the generic church answer give me an answer FROM HEART! FROM YOUR SOUL! Down below is my answer.

Who do I say God is? Jesus is God and God is Jesus and the Holy Spirit is also God. He is hope, He is holy, He is everlasting, He conquered death, He is a savior He saved me from suicide if it wasn't for Him, if the Bible was just empty words on a page, I wouldn't be here! But it's not empty words on a page and I experienced His love when I was at the end of my rope.

If the Bible was just an ordinary book no Jesus, no God, no Holy Spirit, in other words, no Trinity I would have had no reason to live and I would've taken my life.
This question will forever ponder me and stay with me. Even when I go to college who do I say He is? Was He the biggest liar in history or the ultimate rescue that everyone needs? He didn't tell a single lie, He didn't do a single sin, He is God and He is just. And just like He wiped my case clean He can do that for anyone anywhere.

If there is one thing I want tell you before I die or one thing when I’m dead if we never meet in real life if there is just one thing...that one thing is this...it’s not about what you’ve done it’s about what you’ve overcome.

If there one song I would suggest to you it is by Addison Road, “What Do I Know Of Holy”

[CHORUS 2]
What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?
And a God who gave life it's name?
What do I know of Holy?
Of the One who the angels praise?
All creation knows Your name
On earth and heaven above
What do I know of this love?

ALL CREATION KNOWS YOUR NAME! And I tend to wander, I tend to forget, I doubt your name, what do I know of this love? ONLY WHAT I'VE EXPERIENCED OF IT AND I WANT MORE OF YOUR LOVE FOR YOU HAVE SO MUCH OF IT! SO MUCH MERCY! SO MUCH GRACE! SO MUCH MORE...SO MUCH...YOU ARE GOD! YOU ARE MINE AND I AM YOURS!

My life doesn’t need porn, my life doesn’t need sound, my life doesn’t need a tongue to speak, my life doesn’t need eyes for sight, my life doesn’t need anything that this earth has. I just need heart I just need...God. I just need that book called the Bible, I just need his amazing grace, I just need Him...when I see or think about the cross I feel so grateful I feel so unworthy. That He would send His son to die for me, if I was the only person on the earth He would’ve died just for me. I’m worth Jesus and so are you. So, when I die trust the Lord

Casting Crowns “Who Am I”
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean.
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I'm calling.
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling.
And You've told me who I am.
I am Yours, I am Yours.

So, when I die don’t do anything stupid. When I die it’s okay to be sad but don’t be sad to long because I will be in Heaven.
