I was talking with a group of women on Saturday morning and we got on the topic of “getting our house in order.” It was more than just about Spring-cleaning; it had to do with living ready and being prepared in the Lord. Interesting, we all sense the same thing: the days seem shorter. Regardless, our house and heart needs to be in order, straightened up, so to speak.

What’s getting your house in order look like?

Behold Him

Over a week ago, I had skin cancer surgery on my lip.  At first I was shocked by the apparent disfigurement to my face; however temporary that might be.  It began to trouble me, and then, I turned my attention to the Lord and gained His eternal perspective.  At once I thought about 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, “For momentary, light affliction is producing in you an eternal weight of glory…”  Of course!  “…though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day…”  Of course!  How true!  All of this causes me to look to Him all the more and to behold Him, no matter what!

Jesus Christ, the risen Lord, is so very real!  Have a blessed Lord’s day, walking in the reality of His presence!

On His Earth

Many believe that God is “attempting” to get our attention through the events taking place throughout the world.  I say, “attempting” because whether we listen or not is entirely up to us.  We ought to be listening to God during this time.  We ought to be praying that those who do not know Him would come to receive His Son, Jesus Christ, as their Lord and Savior.

It struck me this morning that we are on His earth; walking around on His creation; breathing His air and taking in oxygen with the lungs He fashioned while in our mother’s womb.  Does He not deserve our attention, our adoration and respect?  Does He not deserve all glory and honor? Honor: to give highest respect.

A final thought: One day we will all come face-to-face with God Almighty and we will hit the ground because the sheer awesomeness of His holiness.  Today while we are walking on His earth, if we would turn our attention to seek the Lord, He will answer!  Let’s be finished with all the ways we ignore Him and His goodness and mercy.

Remember those in Japan today.  Cry out to God for those who do not know Him that they will call upon His Name for deliverance.  He is their only Hope!
