Being a consistent blogger is hard. There is so much I have to share. Finally organized enough to start again… Fall is coming yall! It is amazingly beautiful in Texas this morning. Choose Do NOT Follow…
It is Friday! Friday’s are usually “one” of my favorite days of the week. Mainly, because I look forward to Eric getting a small mental and physical break from his daily grind.
So… We ALL have been affected by some major catastrophes lately and some still in the midst with weather, medical, life, deaths, that very ugly “c” word connected with medical, depression and so much more that it is TIME to really in truly trust and rely on God.
I did an AMAZING study by Melissa Radke called This Sucks…But God is Good. (Which brought the way you should check it out at http://www.melissaradke.com) God has brought some sisters into my life, that I really don’t know how I lived 42 years without. We are amazed daily with how we all connected and how God had HIS hand in HIS plan in making this all happen. We have learned to share, care, love, live, laugh and cry all in the same in sharing this journey together. We have had some major spiritually moving prayer times and we have experienced “seeing” God change things with our very own eyes.
As most of you know, my medical issues are quite complicated, always have been and I just know God will see me through as it will be. In this season of “our” lives, we are committed and ready. Changes are happening. Changes all around us. School has started, in full swing and kids are having the highest level of challenges. Have we taught our little’s to be prepared for these challenges? This I say all to often, the Revelations are being played out RIGHT BEFORE OUR VERY OWN EYES, are you ready for the day the Lord returns? Are your children ready? I was sent a text last week that opened my eyes…
“And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had. And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said, As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives. And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.”
Luke 21:1-38 KJV
When you look this up, most of these 38 verses are written in red. Why? Because it is this what Jesus said, always being written in red. So taking this chapter into consideration knowing that Jesus Christ said this, again I will ask you…Are you ready? Have you prepared and equipped your children with the sword of the Lord, the Bible? It’s true, God has had a plan way before we even knew who to trust in a plan. Watch ye therefore… Let’s Get ready and stand together for the day is coming. Soon and very soon. I would encourage you all to Choose this day
Whom you will serve and do not follow just anyone…Follow God together. Hope you all have a blessed weekend. Satan is trying all of us…Let’s be strong in FAITH and let God’s Grace cover us. ‘Cause “ain’t nobody got time for satan!”
