About two weeks ago just before church on Wednesday evening, Todd came upstairs and said, “Mom, look at the sky.” I immediately noticed a yellowish glow through all of our windows and ran to the door to look. As we stepped out on the porch, we noticed that the sun was trying to shine through a strange combination of clouds and was literally making everything look yellow.
I told Todd, “Maybe Jesus is coming back. If He is, we’ll all be on our knees.”
I ran to get my camera (I’ll add the pictures later), and Tim grinned when he heard that I was thinking I might get pictures of Jesus coming through the clouds on His white horse. He said, “What were you going to do with those???”
This question really got me thinking.
When Jesus comes back, there will be no time to report the news. There’ll be no time to call friends. There’ll be no time to post a message on Facebook or even share how it made me feel right here on my blog.
When Jesus comes back, that’s it.
The end of pain, suffering, sadness, disappointment, anger, grief, loneliness, depression……and all the other negative parts of this world.
And then the beginning!!!!
The beginning of perfect joy, happiness, peace, fellowship, healing……..and all the other wonderful aspects of Heaven.
So, as I sat here this morning during my planning period having my quiet time, I thought,
“Jesus could come back today and if He did what have I done on my blog to help someone who might not be ready???”
We just never know!
So, I wanted to write this post just to let you know that I love you all so much and I want you all in Heaven. But I won’t be able to write to you on the day He returns.
I’ll be busy!!!
Worshipping, praising, and thanking Him for His faithfulness, love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, patience, and on and on and on………….
It was amazing on that Wednesday when the sky was yellow. As I stood on the porch, I have to admit that I wasn’t thinking, “Where’s Olivia? Is my family all ready for Jesus? Do my friends all know Him?” No. On that day when I thought maybe, just maybe, I was going to meet My Savior, all I could think of was this: Am I ready????????? I think that’s how it will be for all of us on that day.
It will just be “little us” facing “amazing Him.” And all that will matter from that moment on is what we did with Him while we were here.
Take a minute to think about what you’ll be doing on that day.
A friend told me recently that people will either be rejoicing on that day or trembling in fear……
My prayer is that your hearts are ready to rejoice when you see Him come.
If you still aren’t sure where you stand with Him, please talk to a minister or friend or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to visit with you about this most important aspect of your life……………..eternity.
Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
