So, here I am. Still moving forward. Upward. Still climbing that narrow path that will someday lead me home to Heaven. And home is the perfect word. Sometimes I find myself acting like an impatient child. Pouting and throwing a fit…but, I’m ready to go home…to Heaven.
There are days that feel like they will never end. Days where the climb almost seems too much. Moments that I see the spiritual pain and suffering in those around me and it makes me hurt. Needless worry and stress that zaps the joy from the hearts of those I know and love. If we just lay it all at the feet of Jesus, He will take care of it.
Now, grant it, I’m no Saint. I make lots of mistakes and sometimes I lose sight of my journey. I am only human. But, there are other days when the Holy Spirit is so alive in me that I could run right down the middle of town shouting the good news that Jesus is still in the saving business and He is coming back soon. Very soon.
Are you ready? Do you have yourself in order? Did you know that the Bible says…
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Matthew 12:36 KJV
Let that sink in…Every Idle Word!!
Do you know how many idle words I say per day?! It’s overwhelming. Let’s challenge ourselves. If you are reading this, let’s go one full day with no idle words. No speaking under our breath. No judgmental comments. No negative feedback.
Can you do it? I’m certainly going to try.
Let us lift each other in prayer. Let us give thanks for all the blessings we have. Let us rejoice in the day that the Lord has given us. God bless all of you.
