Every year on this day, August 16th, I write about our Averie Ryne. Today would’ve been her 23rd birthday! However, early this morning God gave me a sweet dream about my friend Jimmy Murcks! And on Averie’s birthday no doubt! So, I’m going to assume that Averie is hanging out with Jimmy today, and that they’re having so much fun! Well, I guess y’all are wanting to know what I dreamed about Jimmy, so I reckon I’ll tell y’all!
I was at a convenience store, with a car full of people. Tucker was sitting in the back, passenger seat. I was about to leave and a friend walked up to my window. I’m not sure who it was but, we were laughing and talking, and something came up about Jimmy. I heard someone say my name from the back, so I turned around. I looked back to see Jimmy standing at Tucker’s window! He handed me his drink and said here, try this. It was so Jimmy! His voice! His smile! Everything! I turned around to my friend and said there he is! She said who? I said Jimmy! But she couldn’t see him. I turned back around and he and Tucker were laughing, and he was giving tucker a big hug! He had that smile on his face that he got every time we talked about how well Tucker was doing. And then he was gone.
It was so nice to hear that voice, and see that smile, even if it was just a dream! Y’all, it felt so good! If a dream can feel that good, imagine what it will be like in Heaven!! I can’t even begin to imagine how good it’s going to feel! But y’all, there’s only ONE WAY to get to Heaven! ONE WAY! And that’s through Jesus Christ! First, you need to admit that you’re a sinner. We all are! You have to believe He was born of a virgin, that He lived as a man and died on the cross for your sins. You have to believe that He was raised from the dead on the third day, and that He’s seated at the right hand of His Father, and that He’s coming back, one day (maybe sooner than we think), for those who love Him! You have to ask Him into your heart to be your Lord and Savior. If you haven’t done that, do it! If you’re not a believer, please look into it! Check it out! Try Jesus! When you die, which we’re all going to do, I want you to be in Heaven with Averie and Jimmy, and the rest of us who believe! It’s going to be so awesome!
If you openly say, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, you will be saved. Yes, we believe in Jesus deep in our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we openly say that we believe in him, and so we are saved. Romans 10:9-10
Then the Angel showed me Water-of-Life River, crystal bright. It flowed from the Throne of God and the Lamb, right down the middle of the street. The Tree of Life was planted on each side of the River, producing twelve kinds of fruit, a ripe fruit each month. The leaves of the Tree are for healing the nations. Never again will anything be cursed. The Throne of God and of the Lamb is at the center. His servants will offer God service—worshiping, they’ll look on his face, their foreheads mirroring God. Never again will there be any night. No one will need lamplight or sunlight. The shining of God, the Master, is all the light anyone needs. And they will rule with him age after age after age. Revelation 22:1-5
