To many people that is a word they would rather never hear.
A friend shared with me that he was being audited....the word automatically strikes dread if not fear. He complained that he knew that his bookkeeping was not the best and getting ready was going to be a NIGHTMARE!!
Once again it brought me back to the 10 virgins at the end of the age...you know all waiting but only 5 ready.
Seriously that is one nauseating feeling!
you know what it sounds like...
"OH DARN I MEANT TO BUY OIL!!!!"
Friend Don't put off today doing first things first!
"People get ready, the songs says, Jesus is coming"
That statement should strike such excitement in the depth of your being and if it doesn't
ASK YOURSELF WHY
and I just pray
you will DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!
The scripture says He will come like a thief in the night......to tell you the truth ...I don't care how He comes..Im ready!

The other day I bumped into a friend for a few minutes on my journey. She was walking with her Grand Baby. We had only a few minutes as she quickly shared with me her current situation of Care giving for her parents, ending with the somewhat exasperated words, "I Have No Life"
Those words were on my mind as I woke.
How often have I felt that?
Declared those very words over myself?
Frustrated, tired, short sighted, envious as I look at others ~ Live.
I GET IT......
I suspect that each and every reader has muttered those 4 words at one time or another.
As I muse I come to realize it's an accurate statement.
I'm reminded that I traded MY life... I gave my rights over to serve a King and become one of His Family.
We must work Daily, moment by moment, to not let the mundanity of this "life" suck us dry. It is "our job"to keep correct perspective by the Power of the Holy Spirit.
I can just see those gazillion Israelites trudging endlessly.....I wonder if they realized "hey! Haven't I seen that before?! This looks strangely familiar "
Friends I DON'T WANT TO GO IN CIRCLES!
I don't want to live in the rut of my short sighted, small existence. That IS NOT God's will for us!
He, The Creator, has So Much More for us!
He says "Come child, move Forward with me, I'm wanting to show you BRAND New Things....right where I have you"
Beloved....LIVE YOUR LIFE...squeeze out every bit of what God has for you! It's in there...ask for the Light of His Presence to shine on The path so you can see it
Father Please lift my head.....I want to see Your Glory, Your Provision, Your Beauty, Your lessons, Your Faithfulness!
I WANT IT ALL!
Help me, Jesus, to live this life,You have chosen for me, to the fullest I pray...resting in Your Timing and the Knowledge that You hold my days...every second!
Love you lord!
