Could It Be Today?

I was driving home last night when this song came on the radio. I was surprised by how much it moved me. All of a sudden tears filled my eyes and my heart felt tight with emotion. My life has been going so well lately. There are so many blessings and genuine joy, but I know that nothing will compare to THAT DAY!



Two friends of mine are suffering right now. One is grieving loss and one is grieving unfulfilled dreams. I know the hurt they are going through right now and I'm so thankful that this is not it.

I can't wait.
I can't wait to live the way we were made to live.
I can't wait to worship Him face to face.
I can't wait to live a life without pain, suffering, fear, or shame.
I can't wait to love people unselfishly and with pure love.
I can't wait to experience real joy and see real beauty.
I can't wait for every knee to bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

My heart breaks lately when I think of my friends and family and neighbors who don't know Jesus. It hurts inside so much. I can see their faces. During my run today, I looked at each house and wondered, "Do they know Him?"

It makes me wish I had the talent for helping people see Him, to inspire them to want Him. I wish I could do or say something to express to my loved ones that don't know Him, how much they need Him, how empty life is without Him, and how important it is to give their lives to Him.

I understand doubt. I understand confusion over religion. But I know Jesus. He's the answer to everything.

And someday I'm going to see Him face to face!
There will be a day when He comes back and I can't wait for that day!

Looking forward and upward~
Could it be today?

By the way, I read this beautiful post today and wanted to encourage you to stop by and read it, too.

Love,

Becky, That was a beautiful post that shows what a beautiful heart you have for Jesus. It was like a song. How did I get such a daughter as you, such a blessing. Let me know when you figure out how to talk to our loved ones about Him. I love you, Mom

Becky,
I am so thankful that there is someone out there that can express in words what I feel. When you wrote about your experience while you run it reminded me of a missionary in Japan who goes for a walk everyday. He takes a different route and prays along the way. Sometimes the Lord will point out a house to him and he will pray over that house. People have actually come to know the Lord that have come out of those houses and talked to him. Sometimes that day, sometimes later but God might be speaking to you in the same way. Just a thought. There are always opportunities and I am the worst offender when it comes to ignoring them or running away from them. Let's be in prayer for each other that we would all be bold in our witness to others. The Lord is coming soon. I just know it. So, I'll see you soon. Here, there or in the air. Love you Beck.

Becky! Can't you see? I read your posts and you do have a talent to show people Him. Your readings show so much love and faith, I am in awe that you would write such a thing :

"It makes me wish I had the talent for helping people see Him, to inspire them to want Him. I wish I could do or say something to express to my loved ones that don't know Him, how much they need Him, how empty life is without Him, and how important it is to give their lives to Him."

You have no idea how much your faith strengthens my faith! You are such a beautiful person Becky, and a very modest one at that!
