The other night I thought I was dying. Shorter breath was coming. I was so peaceful and I prayed for my great-grandchildren. I wanted Jesus in their hearts, my Savior, Jesus. Most important in their lives is to have Jesus. Our Savior, and His Father God in their lives. I took some deep breaths. I know Jesus wanted me to live so I could write you a letter about how I feel about Jesus and how He is so important to you. You live forever and forever after you die. When you die you have a heavenly home. So you live a life, an example here on earth for Jesus. I will be happy. Praise the Lord!
When Mark Lambert came to this church, he was a young pastor. He said to me, â€œElia, do you know where you are going when you die?â€ I said, â€œI hope to go to heaven.â€ I should have said, â€œI know Iâ€™m going to heaven.â€ Mark said, â€œyouâ€™re not a Christian.â€
I knew the Bible stories but Jesus wasnâ€™t in my heart.
You can know all the Bible stories but until you turn your life over to Jesus, you canâ€™t go to Heaven. Mark was right; he led me to Jesus. I KNOW I AM GOING TO HEAVEN TO SEE MY SAVIOR, JESUS AND MY FATHER, GOD. I am forever grateful to Mark. He told me the truth.
Elia â€œNanaâ€ Miles,
who will turn 95 years young on October 28th!
