A Little Word For Saturday

Isaiah 40:11 "He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isn't this the most perfect picture, I have a mental image that really excites me, my precious lord leading me, and taking me to higher places, drawing me close to his bosom. Each day is a new step in his grace, each day is another opportunity to grow a little more, to learn more of his precious words, and to get closer to our Shepherd, we all need to be up close and personal with our lord, we are gonna feel so out of place when the rapture comes, if we are not close to him here on earth. I feel this is a training ground for us to learn how to be Godly like he is, and how to spend our days wisely like he does, and how to get used to how heaven will be, we may not have the streets of gold, and walls of jasper, or gates of pearl, but we have a glimpse of how our life will be in heaven just being in his word, and knowing more about our dear Saviour daily. It is a constant walk, and constant learning process, lets compare it to our marriage here to our husbands, we loved them when we married them, but it took time to really get to know him, and to love him like we do today, we learned the ins and outs of how he is, how the inner person really is, how he felt, what made him tick so to speak, and that is how we need to learn about our Jesus, we need to spend time with him, we need to ask him questions, we need his touch on us daily, then when he gets ready to bring us home, it will not be such a difference in our way of life, we will be seen as he sees then, and we will be made perfect in his image, so lets get busy right today, and make up our minds we are going to be ready to meet our Jesus, when he comes in the sky for us. Have a blessed day, and know it may be today he comes for us, be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh.

You know Barbara, just yesterday I was talking to someone about how people are so distracted with the things of this world, that they are already not seeking the Lord on a daily basis. They are living like this world is all there is. I can see how no one will be looking for the return of Christ, because there are few looking now.

This is so very true, we are living in the end times indeed, I keep think about the verse in Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh. and verse 46 I love, Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. He will come like a thief in the night, so many will be so ashamed when they look into that dear face of our Saviour, and know how they choose the world over him. Very sad prospect for sure. Whewwwww gets me excited just thinking about his return.
