Today and all ways, those who look to God and seek refuge in Him will always have peace and be at rest. Amazing! No matter when we are called home, be ready to meet The Creator. When others are looking crestfallen and hopeless, the people who look to God will look different our hope is in The LORD. For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord… Psalm 71:5. And Jesus said to him, “’If you can’! … Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my God. You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your Word.
What is The Word? John 1:1 that question.
It’s in these times that people often come to Christians and ask them why they look so happy, and this always presents a perfect opportunity to share The Source of peace.

Of note, these are scientific explanations. We can look at religious descriptions:
I stroll through teachings:
Buddhists believe death is a natural part of the life cycle. They believe that death simply leads to rebirth. This belief in reincarnation – that a person’s spirit remains close by and seeks out a new body and new life
Judaism Many Jews believe in life after death because: In the classical Jewish tradition there are teachings on life after death. These include the idea that humans have a soul which will one day return to God. Other teachings suggest that there will be a future judgment when some will be rewarded and others punished.
Hinduism Most Hindus believe that humans are in a cycle of death and rebirth called samsara. When a person dies, their atman is reborn in a different body. Some believe rebirth happens directly at death, others believe that an atman may exist in other realms.
We as Christians hold tight to our beliefs. Our hope lies in Jesus- The Firstborn. The word “hope” in ordinary English vocabulary is generally distinguished from certainty. … Having your hope anchored in Jesus means that you trust Him and His promises. Having Jesus–hope is having confidence that whatever it is you are hoping for will come to pass.
Those who seek The LORD lack no good thing. Psalm 34:10b
Those of steadfast mind You keep in peace—because they trust in You. Trust in The LORD forever, for in The LORD God you have an everlasting rock. Isaiah 26: 3-4
Seek The LORD and His strength; seek His presence continually! 1 Chronicles 16:11
And we pray:
