DEC 31 – NO STRANGER IN HEAVEN

Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. (Psalm 73:24) From day to day and from year to year my faith believes in the wisdom and love of God, and I know that I shall not believe in vain. No good word of His has ever failed, and I am sure that none shall ever fall to the ground. I put myself into His hand for guidance. I know not the way that I should choose: the Lord shall choose mine inheritance for me. I need counsel and advice; for my duties are intricate, and my condition is involved… The counsel of the infallible God I seek in preference to my own judgment or the advice of friends… Soon the end will come: a few more years and I must depart out of this world unto the Father. My Lord will be near my bed. He will meet me at heaven’s gate: He will welcome me to the glory land. I shall not be a stranger in heaven: my own God and Father will receive me to its endless bliss. Glory be to Him who Will guide me here, And receive me hereafter. Amen.
