The Perfect Plan

In a previous blog I spoke of a door and I could only see the light under it, but I was excited to go through the Door. Now I find this Scripture:

John10:7-9 (AMPC)
So Jesus said again, I assure you,
most solemnly I tell you,
that I Myself am the Door for the sheep.
8 All others who came [as such] before Me are thieves and robbers,
but the [true] sheep did not listen to
and obey them.
9 I am the Door; anyone who enters in
through Me will be saved (will live).
He will come in and he will go out [freely],
and will find pasture.




Last night, on the feast of the Ascension, a very dear long time friend went home to Jesus. He walked through the Door. We were going out to visit them later this summer, but a devastating accident cut his earthly life short. It is a heart struggle to remember in our sadness, he is now living in joy eternally with Jesus. For him I am so happy; for his wife and family and friends, it is difficult knowing we still have to live for a time here on earth without him. However, time is flying, so perhaps it will not seem that long until we join him in eternity.



I believe there are no coincidences; they are just circumstances in which God chooses to remain anonymous. Our friends wife and I were roommates and best friends. My husband was his roommate and best friend. Long ago there was a snowy night when she and I went out to “meet some guys”. Weather almost kept us home, but we went anyway. It was this night she met Brad. When I returned from a long summer trip, she told me they had gotten engaged. Although I was delighted for her, I was feeling a little blue wondering what I would do?



I smile in remembrance of Brad's soft spoken ways, his quiet sense of humor, and his caring nature. I particularly remember how his caring came out strong this one time~ it was the day when I was really feeling down, and Brad and Sharon invited me to join them that night to go have a drink together. And glory be, it was also the night that Bill and I met. . . Our dear friend invited his roommate (who just happened to be Bill) to come meet us when he got off work, and we all had a wonderful time together. Two weeks later, my husband of almost 50 years, and I were engaged. Need I say more?




God had interwoven His plan perfectly. His plan for us and His plan of salvation which is also perfect. Brad had a peaceful beautiful death; he just breathed his last 2 breaths and walked through the Door into Jesus arms. It was a time when heaven was touching earth and those present got to be a part of it.

1 Corinthians 15:55 (AMPC) O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?

Jesus conquered death. We have no need to fear death when we have chosen Jesus as Lord of our lives. Jesus' death and resurrection purchased salvation for us. Now we just admit we are sinners, need saving, accept His gift, and live a life full of joy on earth and in eternity. This is God’s perfect plan of salvation and it is open to all.
