Do you have a will?
Is it detailed and covers all your earthly treasures or is it pretty basic and gives direction for just the big stuff - like kids and bank accounts?
I can barely read scripture these days and not think about my life without John. Probably for several reasons... 1) he & I always used to talk about our daily prayer time. Since I don't have him to do that with anymore, I do it on my blog. So, thank you all for "listening" as he used to! 2) I know God is comforting me with His Words during this time and I'm soaking it up like a sponge!
Recently I read something in Deuteronomy that made me think about my will. I now have one by the way, but John & I did not have one together. Nor did we have Life Insurance. But as I share my story, I have not been able to use the words, "he left me here with nothing." One, I think that would bring him shame and secondly, I just don't believe it's true. And the other day, I found out Biblically I'm right!!!
Deuteronomy 8:2 (ESV)
"They shall have no inheritance among their brothers,
the Lord is their inheritance, as He promised them."
These were the instructions the Lord had for the priests that lived & served among the children of Israel. As soon as I read this, I almost leaped out of my chair, as I was subbing at the High School.
