I have never been on a train and my husband hasn't done it since he was a little boy. Our tickets have been purchased and printed and I have researched all the details of train travel. Although the experience will be totally new to me, I am not frightened. In fact, I am highly anticipating it.
There is another "trip" in the future for which my ticket has been purchased and of which I am highly anticipating. But, unlike our trip to New York where I am literally (ask my co-workers) counting the days, I don't know the departure date of this trip.
There will come a day when I leave this world for that heavenly realm. The Lord Jesus purchased my ticket with His very life. It was a gift from Him to me and all I had to do was receive it by faith. I, obviously, have never traveled this trip, but I am not fearful of it either. I know the "Conductor" of this train and I have already been told in His "travel guide" that "Safety is of the Lord," (Proverbs 21:31.)
Our Conductor, Jesus Christ, is the only One in the universe is perfectly and completely faithful and true. I have been promised He will be with me all the way and that His rod and His staff will comfort me.
I will fear no evil because of Him.
