This story has nothing to do with gardening but I feel very compelled to write it. With everything that is going on in this world I feel it won't be long until Jesus returns. I've been reading different books, watching different shows and really feel this in my heart. I have discussed these things with family and some friends and many are in agreement with me.
I've been reading a book titled, "One Month to Live" by Kerry and Chris Shook. It is based on what would you do if you found out you had 30 days to live. For instance, would you change your lifestyle? Would you change the way you think? These are just a few of the questions that it makes you consider.
I guess I have really taken this to heart because the other night I had the most unusual dream. Oh sorry but one little detour. Sometimes when we are talking there are times when my husband and I tell each other that when Jesus does come we are ready to go. Life has been great here but in Heaven it will be oh so much better. Okay, on with my story, sorry.
Back to the dream. I dreamed I found out I had a terminal illness. In my dream I was so sad to tell my mom. Then when I was telling my husband I was even more sad. I told him that even though I knew things were going to be okay I didn't really want to leave him and my life on earth. I told him there were still some things I wanted to do. Then after that I woke up and thought that was some kind of dream.
Most of you don't know but I have daily devotion and quiet time with my morning coffee. So that morning as I opened my Bible this is the first verse I read - The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. Romans 13: 11-12.
Now I don't know if you are like me or what but some people say they hear God talking to them. Honestly, most of the time I don't hear him. But if this verse doesn't speak loudly then I don't know what does. As Crystal Lewis sings in her song, People get ready Jesus is coming, soon we'll be going home. People get ready, Jesus is coming, to take from the world his own. I really believe this! Question is, "Do you?"
