Never Say Goodbye

“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” -Deuteronomy 31:8 ESV

After my sister’s wedding, they were planning to move to California because Jared had some connections and got a new job. It was truly wonderful timing with the help of God as Jared got the new job, soon found a new apartment for the newly wed, and found a good deal with a moving pod loaded and sent off a month before leaving Peak Pikes of Colorado. For the last week Brinkley, Jared, and I planned a lot of activities to do before they left. We went to the theater many times. On their honeymoon, they were puppy sitting at a friend’s ranch, and they invited me to come over and we spend time in a hot tub and even went for two hours of riding both a 4-wheeler and a ATV on many rough and bumpy dirt roads. The day before they left, I volunteered to help them load what was left into their two small cars, and fortunately we were able to puzzle everything in there. As they left and were saying goodbyes to my mom, Lovey, and I, Brinkley could not stop crying for leaving us but still hopeful for new opportunities to come to them and California. As both Brinkley and Jared hopped into the Buggy, and drove off, we were all waving goodbye.

It can be very hard to say goodbye to someone who is leaving either a family member, a good friend, or evening a coworker who is moving on to a different job. Relationships are very important in biblical perspective and beliefs; and it was built originally by the creator God that notice that relationships are necessary for human beings in both of one another to communicate as well as His relationship with each individual. Though it is very hard to say goodbye to other humans, we will never have to have the same fear or heartache of saying goodbye to the Lord, because He lives inside of you after being born again.  Jesus is knocking the door of our hearts wanting to come in. Once we open our door of the heart and surrender to Him as Lord and Savior, He will come in and never going to leave. The Holy Spirit has come to live in your heart, and according to both the New and Old Testament, He promise that He would not leave you. It states, “for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5 ESV). Like how friendship will come and go through life, the scripture says, “The grass withers, the flowers fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. As a thousand years in heaven will not be different of our relationship with Jesus, for His steadfast love never change with his love for you, and he will never leave you but continue in His steadfast love relationship with you for eternal life.
