I Was Thinking.

I was thinking (yes, I can hear the laughs already... specifically from R. and perhaps C.! I ususally utter those words to R. when I have a favor to ask or a really great idea to share:D And C. never misses an opportunity to make sure that it's been noted that a *blonde* was thinking for once!). I've been happily roaming around, jumping from blog to blog, as I investigate what's beyond the link and partake in one of my favorite past times: reading. Anyway, back to thinking. I have really enjoyed *getting to know* several sweet sisters in the Lord by reading their thoughts they post on their blog. It just gets me excited to think that one day we'll be in Heaven, worshipping the Lord together and praising His name! Isn't that amazing?!?! Yesterday morning my pastor commented, "Who knows? The Rapture might happen today. It might not happen, but it just might happen." And think: going to worship Jesus and lay crowns at his feet; the most exciting thing that is yet to come.

So are you looking forward to that, dear friend? Jesus could come back today, tomorrow, next week. But are you ready for Him to come? Oh dear, a question that burns in my heart as I think of souls still lost and without Jesus. Jesus is coming, and it's our responsibility to be the watchman and sound the alarm, or else there will be blood on our hands

"Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me."
~Ezekiel 33:2-7
