“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. Matthew 25:13
I missed the weather forecast yesterday. Hence, I did my washing today only to be confronted by a heavy downpour. I mean….CATS & DOGS! To begin with, I hate tracking the weather forecast. My husband on the other hand is a vivid tracker… which is understandable. Having grown up in Africa myself where the weather is almost always predictable and without the disadvantage of the four seasons in a year, I didn’t quite appreciate the importance of the weatherman till I came to Europe.
Hang on, what I am trying to say here? As a child of God… I have another different kind of weatherman. Is he accurate in his prediction? Is he reliable to the letter? Long before Jesus walked on the face of this earth, God had spoken of him through the ages. His forecast of the coming of His ONE AND ONLY BELOVED SON came true 2000 years ago.
While my heart looks forward to the forecast of his soon return, sometimes I miss out on the signs written all over when my heart becomes preoccupied with my today. Like the 5 foolish virgins, I have enough supply for today, and I lack the wisdom to stock up for the long haul. I constantly miss the forecast.
May the Lord help you and I to keep watch…. because the BRIDEGROOM is surely coming and at an hour we expect him not!
Come LORD. And may I be looking for You when you appear!
That’s my prayer as well. Thanks for stopping by Mike. Good to hear from you again.
Hello Gladwellmusau I truly enjoyed the read,and I am watching and waiting for our Saviours soon return. What a time that will be!
Love you 😀
Thank you for this reminder, Gladwell. We surely need to be sensitive to His timing not just His eventual return but in every season of our lives.
So very true.
You were gone so long that I ended up, in one of my clean up episodes, removing you from my list of blogs I follow. I can see you’ve been back for awhile – I’m glad. I have always enjoyed your thoughts and the way you express them. Hope all is well.
Thank you, Mike. We have been well and God has remained faithful inspite of the many challenges we faced with the moving and settling in.
How easy it is for me to become distracted with the fodder of life…
You are not alone!
Thank you for helping us stay prepared! You are a blessing! Loving getting to read your devotions again . . .God bless you!
I am glad to be back as well. I am also tremendously blessed by the uplifting poems! Keep up the good labour of love!
My nephew and his family lived in England for three years and their description of the nation could be summed up in one word: rain. So, now they live in Denver where one word can sum up their area: drought.
So true….England is nothing but RAIN. A happy rainy summer!
