For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Are you at peace with your mortality? Are you prepared to die?
Jane Kristen Marczewski (Nightbirde) came to understand that death for her and for all of us is inevitable be it from cancer or something else.
She was exuberant about life, the life she had, a life that is a vapor.
Can we before our Lord show our joy and gratitude for him and his sacrifice? Or are we like the world, sinful and cynical?
Today is the day for you to make peace with God!
Don't wait! Confess your inability to cope with life, you need him, his mercy and grace!
Tomorrow may be to late for all of us! - Andy

“My life with God has been a complicated one and I can’t really say the complications have been entirely my fault,” she wrote on her Instagram, adding: “I think a fair assessment would be that we’ve each allowed the other to experience at least some degree of disappointment in our friendship. I’ve misunderstood him. I’m pretty sure he’s always understood me but he hasn’t been necessarily vocal about it. It’s not easy being friends with people and friendship with God is no different.”
Despite her trials, Nightbirde noted that she is unashamed about her faith in God and recognizes how He loves her no matter her situation.
“Life is complicated and friendship with God does not make life less complicated,” Nightbirde wrote. “But as I get older I am realizing that I would not have it any other way.”
“Internally I sometimes wish that life would be perfect rather than just occasionally good. But I think it’s a mistake to presume that a perfect world would be better than a free world,” she continued. “Love needs a place to live and grow and prove itself and that can only happen where tragedy is possible.”.. from the article: NIGHTBIRDE DISCUSSES HER RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD: ‘I WOULD NOT HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY’
