Today, I have spent most of my day in bed. I am not feeling very well. I have these days where I have zero spoons left and I just need to rest. If you are not familiar with the spoon theory please click the link. [Spoon Theory]
I thank God for leading me to a man who understands the days when I just need rest. I sometime feel guilty for having a day where I do nothing but then Nick, (my dear husband) reminds me that when I am resting, my body is healing.
This evening while I was resting I was channel surfing and came upon the movie Left Behind. Not the new one but the one starring Kirk Cameron. This movie started me thinking about what the world would be like after the rapture and then my second thought was, I do not want to be around to find out what the world would be like after the rapture. In fact, if I may be so bold to say, I don’t want anyone I know to be left behind. Truly, I want everyone on the face of the earth to be saved and find themselves in heaven.
I also can remember being so scared about the rapture and what would happen if I was not taken to heaven as a small child. I went to the Church of the Nazarene in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania and the movie A Thief in the Night was shown to all the children in the church. I had nightmares for a long time after seeing that movie and even now, if I think about that movie, it still frightens me. I am sure the movies are made to show you what the world might be like after the rapture but the sheer scariness of the movie made me want to protect everyone around me and as a child that was not my job.
As an adult, I cannot help but want to protect all of the people I love and care about but again, that isn’t my job. My job in this world is to be faithful to God, to love and obey my husband as he is the head of our household and be the best writer I can be. I try hard to live my life the way God wants me to live it but, I am human and I fail but Jesus died on the cross to that God will forgive my sins. I don’t go around sinning all over the place but when it happens, I ask God to forgive me and I know in my heart that he forgives me. I don’t forget those sins, because those are the mistakes that I learn from. I try hard not to repeat those sins, however I am human and I will fail.
My friends, my prayer for you is that you find your way to God. If you believe in God, I promise you he will be with you wherever you go. You may not see him but he is with you in your heart.
The scripture I would like to share with you today is:
Romans 10:9-11 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord.” And believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” [NIV]
There is no single one salvation prayer that will guarantee you a spot in heaven. However just as the scripture says John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. [NIV]
I pray you have a blessed day.
PS. Thank you for your prayers for my family. My brother-in-law is home and with his family and for that I am grateful.
PSS. If you would like me to pray with you, please drop me a line. If you need help finding a salvation prayer I can help you with that also. I feel very blessed that the Lord is leading people to my blog and letting me share his word. Without God, this would not be possible.
