I have a confession

I thought only of my loss

I have a confession to make.  I have been alone for two months now and I have not been able to rejoice for Julie.  People will say, “At least we know she is in heaven.”  Then I would think, “Yeah, well, I am down here and I can’t begin to tell you what I lost when Julie died.”  I thought only of my loss but not of her gain.  (That is my confession)

On Sunday of this week something happened.  I thought of Julie.  In heaven.  Then the thought popped into my head of her saying,  “Hey Jakey, aren’t you happy for me?”  I thought about it.  Then I said I was.  Of course I was!

At that moment my thoughts were filled with what my dear wife gained.

  • Julie had an open door into heaven.
  • She saw Jesus face to face.
  • He put the crown of life upon her head.
  • She was shown the place he had prepared for her.
  • She is near the 24 elders around the throne, casting her crown down and saying HOLY, HOLY, HOLY.
  • She sits in the bleachers with the great cloud of witnesses – Is she cheering us on?
  • No more death, tears, suffering, sickness, sin, temptation, devil.

It was then, I began to REJOICE for her.  For real.

I recorded this video a month ago when God was showing me how to live above the sad stuff in my life. It also talks about rejoicing.  Check it out!
