What a maddening world this is. Beautiful and ugly lives side by side. Logical and illogical all together on one plane. Perspective always determines where you go. A movie called Motherhood was the starter to my pensive thoughts. It was not what I thought it would be but yet I realized for some it was the way they saw their world. The setting was the hustle and bustle of New York which to many would be great but watching it was little claustrophobic for me. Of course, it just showed life in the busy parts of that state as I am sure there are other parts not so busy not so claustrophobic.
It is for those who probably likes the fast life and the glittering of the beautiful glass towers made by man but I prefer the majesty of God made trees, rolling hills interspersed with pillars of clouds as far as the eye can see absent with buildings for sometimes miles around.
I felt sorry for the woman at such a loss of who she was but alas that is everywhere in this land. Perspectives make a difference. Who is in our lives makes a difference. I have heard you are who you hang around and I believe there is validity to that. I believe we are all like floundering ships in the storms of life and unless we are anchored properly--there is no telling where will end up at.
The headlines of the election woes, health care reform, skyrocketing unemployment rate, BP oil spill, federal over reach,government corruption, escalations in the middle east--really everywhere (Korea, Pakistan etc, etc.), lack of presidential leadership amongst many things--gives me that same feeling of claustrophobia as in that movie. We as a culture seems to be on overload or overdrive spiraling to an abyss.
But then I was reminded by a kind gentleman named Jimmy DeYoung of Prophecy Today and I thought could it be? He says there is nothing else to wait for except the coming of the Lord. How breathtaking that is. Could it be so? Wow, get ready folks it is time for a reality check. When He comes, if He comes tomorrow--are you going with him?
I don't live in the hustle and bustle world of New York. I live in a gentler pace and I like it that way. God has gifted me special people to love and cherish and helps remind me of who I am. I am a follower of the Good Shepherd and I hear his voice and it comforts me. His mercy and grace abounds in my life and I owe everything to him. Life is not perfect--it has its ups and downs but knowing Him has made my life abundant and it has made all the difference. Won't you try him and get ready so that when He comes--you will not be left behind...because then it will matter who knows you. Is your name written in heaven?
...rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. Luke 10:20
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Grab a Bible get to know Him from whom all blessings flows--George Washington knew Him and it made all the difference for these United States of America. Israel is a sign for us--study the Bible and as Jimmy De Young likes to say--look up...
