What Is Hell Like?
Have you ever wondered what Hell is like?
As I was reading Lamentations last night, I started to become very sad. I could imagine one of my friends hurting and crying out for help. I then had flashbacks to some of my times when I had been that lonely, scared, and hurting. Just reaching out for someone to support, love, and just give me a hug, telling me that everything is going to be OK.
I believe that at one time in our lives we have felt alone, even if you are married or have a lot of people around you. You have this empty feeling inside. I know that sometimes GOD will back away from us, so that we seek HIM, HE wants us to pursue HIM. But, sometimes we do this to ourselves, we sin, and sin separates us from GOD. Separation from GOD is LONELY.

In fact, I believe, that that is what hell will be like....total separation from GOD.....very lonely. Even here on earth you are surrounded by GOD. HE is in the sky, the wind, the sunsets, HE is nature, HE is in people, your animals, just imagine a place without any of that......very LONELY place.
Because we sin, we feel alone because we are building a wall between us and GOD. It does not have to be "Big" sins either. Pride, jealousy, anger, all of that puts up another brick on the wall that separates us.
Is it time that you tear down the wall and have that close feeling with GOD again?
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
"The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
"therefore I will hope in him."
The LORD is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD.
