Standing on TIPTOE...
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?" John 11:25-26 NIV
He is LORD over death! He is LORD over life! I thank Him again and again for showing me this wonderful Truth. I thank Him for awakening me this morning and encouraging me to read John chapter 11. Lord, You always bless me so!
Thank you for another beautiful, sunny, warm day and Hallelujah, oh how we appreciate SPRING ALL THE MORE AFTER A LONG, COLD, WINDY, SNOWY WINTER!
The flowers are more vivid in color and the grass seems greener than it ever has been before. The Wisteria vines are thriving all around in a brilliant lavender display. I don't think I've ever seen them so BRIGHT before! Part of me thinks it's due to all that snow we had. But, the better part of me knows it's because You are coming to get us.
"...the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage of decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time." Romans 8:21-22 NIV
All creation is standing "on tiptoe to see the wonderful sight of the sons of God coming into their own." Romans 8, Phillips translation
We eagerly await Your arrival. You will NOT be coming back as the meek and mild Teacher riding on a donkey's colt - but You will rend the skies as the King of kings and the Lord of lords! You will come for us as THE MIGHTY VICTORIOUS WARRIOR - the lover of our souls and defender of righteousness!
Many people that we love are not ready for You yet, Lord. Please, please, please save them before it's too late.
Tenderize those hungry hearts riddled with dissatisfaction and angst and embrace them into Your fold and satisfy them with Your HOLY LOVE!
Take off those blinders of deceit that Satan has covered their eyes with.
Unstop the ears that will hear and let them hear!
Make the mute sing Your praise and the lame dance with joy at their salvation!
Cause the withered hands to clap at Your mercy and apply the Balm of Gilead to the diseased so they will drip with Oil of Gladness!
Awaken the dead to rise to eternal life in You!
Hallelujah, my King! Praise Jesus! Praise JESUS! PRAISE JESUS!
I Love You, LORD! I am so grateful You chose me, drew me, peeled away the blinders and sealed me with Your Holy Spirit!
Maranatha, my Love! Maranatha!
