Overall, I am feeling better today. Still got a bit of off and on runny nose, but that can also be seasonal. Not full energy, yet, but getting there. Of course, for me, full energy is not a lot of energy anyway, but over the course of the last year, that has also improved greatly, especially taking into consideration the things I have had to deal with.
For me, a whole lot has to do with letting go of things…yes I do mean physical things, too, but mainly just not letting things get to me. There is a reason for all that happens in life…not always a good reason, but there is a reason. I belong to the One who takes all that we humans have done to our world, ourselves and each other and, while still allowing us freedom of choice, takes those very things and uses them…somehow…for good.
We may not always see that good right away, but someday we will look back (as I have many times in my life) and be able to see how our Creator turned things. We will see the many times He protected us from the decisions of others, as well as our own. We will see the many times He shed tears over those same decisions and the consequences they brought.
Bible prophecy tells us time is winding down. There are specific signs/indicators spoken of in the Bible that have come to pass. There are more to come.
Do I believe a world leader will come on the scene appearing to have all the answers, but who will be a deceiver? Yes.
Do I believe it signifies the end of the age? Yes.
Do I believe Messiah is coming? Yes.
Do I believe the heavens and earth will be made new? Yes.
Do I believe all these things are imminent? No.
The prophets told us there would be a progression…a sort of timeline. Well, the timeline has begun.
Personally, I do believe I will see the rise of that deceiving world leader, assuming my life is not cut short. I do believe we are getting very close, NOT because of what modern day “prophets” are saying, but because of what the proven prophets of old told us…the ones with a track record of being correct.
However, we all have so many days of life gifted to us. Our last day could be ANY day.
Are we living like we believe that?
Are we seeking our Creator and being about His plans and purposes?
I hope so.
Life is short.
Life is precious.
Life is a gift.
Don’t waste your life in this world, sacrificing your life in the world to come.
