Turn on the news or any of your media fav and you will see horrid stories. Unrest in Israel, Palestine, Russia and the Ukraine; our eco system providing very unstable weather; murders, kidnapping, and unspeakable acts of terror; these all can leave us fearful and thinking or even jesting that “the end of the world is near”.
I used to get wrapped up in the whole end of the world mindset….. it was supposed to occur so many times and so often prophesied and not just by novice or the kooks but by extremely intelligent historians and ministers; neither of which I am (well maybe a kook at times).
I choose to live each day like it is my last day. I make sure that the LORD is ordering my steps and guiding my heart. I give my heart to JESUS on every breathing day I have (I may forget, but thank JESUS, he knows my heart). So when I see that news story and the hub bub around how the end is nearing, I actually feel peace.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:2 is a famous verse most of us have heard: For you know quite well that the day of the Lord's return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.
So, no time like the present to get right with GOD, order your steps and give HIM your heart. JESUS wants to not only give you paradise after living but a life here worth living.
PRAYER: Dear GOD, I ask that you lead my heart and I ask that you bless the reader and grasp onto them LORD so that they may live YOUR llife rather than a life filled with fear as to when the end is coming. I ask for this prayer in JESUS precious, wonderful, magnificent, name. Oh… and thank you JESUS for giving me what I do not deserve!
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
