"The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words."1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

"I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you."John 14:8
I had another "Jesus is coming" dream this morning. It was a very short one ... maybe 5 seconds ... I saw the silhouette of a head, high in the sky, then arms were outstretched - behind the silhouette was a brilliant bright light framed by dark thunder clouds .. I knew instantly that it was Jesus and the time had come ...
THEN i woke up ...
Immediately i thought of loved ones and friends who did not know Him. It's one of those glad/sad moments. Glad, because my heart is at peace and ready to be with Him ... sad, because I know so many who reject Him.
But it was a dream, there is still time, Jesus is saying .. "Come unto Me ... "

Isn't it amazing how we go along, enjoying the day, feeling thankful - then something happens to try and pull the rug out from under us ... trouble finds us ... it finds everyone at some point ... But God knows this and is waiting for our call of "Help!" ... He knows, He cares, He is able to change the course or change our hearts ... whatever it is - Call on the Lord in the day of trouble ... and He will help you!

This world is rough ... people can be mean ... but let us be of good cheer, Jesus faced all the issues we may be facing - HE knows, cares and will be there to welcome us home one day ... my heart is confident in GOD, the ONE who loves me, despite knowing me best!

"He has removed our sins as far from us as the East is from the West.The LORD is like a father to His children, tender and compassionate to those who fear Him.
For He knows how weak we are; He remembers we are only dust.
Our days on Earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
The wind blows, and we are gone - as though we had never been here.
But the love of the LORD remains forever with those who fear Him."

Paul wrote, “There was given me a thorn in my flesh, from Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness'” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9).
The cancer in the body. The sorrow in the heart. The child in the rehab center. The craving for whiskey in the middle of the day. The tears in the middle of the night. The thorn in the flesh. “Take it away!” you’ve pleaded. Not once, twice, or even three times. You’ve out-prayed the apostle Paul, and you’re about to hit the wall. But what you hear Jesus say is this: “My grace is sufficient for you.”
Sustaining grace. Grace that meets us at our point of need and equips us with courage and wisdom and strength. Sustaining grace. It doesn’t promise the absence of struggle, but it does promise the presence of God.

"Never try to live your life with God in any other way than His way. ... Showing no concern for the uncertainties that lie ahead is the secret of walking with Jesus."~ Oswald Chambers
"I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able."
2 Timothy 1:12
"Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to Him, "Yes, Lord." "According to your faith let it be to you."

BE RECONCILED TO GOD ....
" ... if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17

our old world is creaking and groaning ... people have no peace, vision is skewed, and satan is happy ... BUT - for those of us who know Jesus - we know Who to turn to ... and we know that God has a plan - that is so perfect that we will be amazed when HE reveals it ... have faith - and always always know that our God is our place of refuge while the storms of life beat at our door ...

I start my day with bible reading ... then a devotional ... as i chat with the LORD ... knowing me, it's work to get my mind going in the direction God points out ... rather than sluggishly take the "seemingly" easier road ... but when the Holy Spirit leads - WOW, the day is good!
