What would you do Richard?? I think I would say stay here as I am caring for my daughter who is severely disabled (emotionally and mentally). I would love a break away but Heaven is just a little too far to go at the moment! Then...some people say you can catch glimpses of Heaven on Earth. I do believe that too. Great Question!
Hi Ann ... Oh,I would choose to go, but if I am honest I would have to say that's primarily because things haven't worked out well for me down here ... If, like most of you, I had many reasons to live out life, then I would of course go that way ... But, as of now,I would go even though it would scare me to leave here ...
Rich, your question made my mind "topsy turvy" I couldn't come to a decision. Perhaps I would rather say: "Thy will be done, Lord"
Oops, Felipa, didn't mean to send your mind spinning .. but, I suspect you can handle it - LOL!
.... to either go to heaven right at the moment ...or, to live out the rest of your life ... what would you choose? It seems that if heaven is our goal, what we're all working for, well then .... But would we give up our life immediately to get it? Hmmm ...
Of course, this is all hypothetical,of course!
This is a no brainer. Gone.
I respectfully have to disagree. If God is aSKING ME TO CHOOSE BETWEEN Him AND THE WORLD...i THINK hE IS ASKING ME; "dO YOU LOVE THE WORLD AND IT'S ATTATCHMENTS MORE THAN ME?" oops sorry, about the caps! So I of course would say " My Lord and my God, I am ready when you want to take me. They Holy will be done". God bless you, Michelle!
Well said! Amen sistah!
