​Dear Church Family,
For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So I really don’t know which is better. I’m torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me. But for your sake, it is better that I continue to live. Philippians 1:21-24.  
Paul had two visions of his future. In one, he would live on in his painful body, probably in prison, and teach more people about the Kingdom of God. In the other, he would die and be with Christ. Paul was in a good place spiritually. He knew that because of his relationship with God he could accept either path God had for him. He was also able to be content with either one. As Christians we know where I future home is and we know that it will be much better than anything here on Earth. But God may have other plans for us that may be painful for us, but will benefit others so much more. There are lost people all around us everyday and God may just be leaving us here to share the Good News to these people, who otherwise would go to Hell. We are only here for a short period of time, compared to eternity. We need to trust God with whatever plans He has for us, knowing that one day we will be with Him forever. Hopefully the ones God has put around us will be there too. 

Here I Am!
