Contrary to popular belief I haven’t always been outgoing. As a child, I was very shy and very rarely spoke to people that I did not know and because of that I developed this outlook that people did not approach me or befriend me simply because they did not like me! (What a lie from the pit of hell!) However, with that way of thinking, it became very easy for me to isolate myself and withdraw into my own emotions and how I thought people viewed me. Boy, was I wrong! :)
My heart is broken. It breaks for all those who have lost someone near to their hearts within the last few days and it breaks for those that I have lost over the years. Over time, you begin to recognize that not everyone you know is actually going to make it to that big ‘ol garden in the sky. You recognize that sometimes the people that you love the most don’t make it to where you want them to make it to. It’s sad and it hurts. But, no one really wants to acknowledge that it could even be possible because we want to believe the best and we want to believe that God wouldn’t be so unjust that He could just let someone we love die and yet they go to hell. But, He is JUST. He is righteous and whether we like it or not, we must come to terms with the fact that if someone does not know Jesus they may not have “earned their wings” or made it to Heaven where we so desperately want them to be, and that’s the part that hurts the most.
