If you have ever been over due date then you know how I am feeling. It feels like it is going to last forever! Every contraction is a hope of maybe this is it and you look at the clock to see if you will have another one. Then if it doesn't come you drop your shoulders and wait again! Well, as I was talking to a friend today she reminded me of how we should be waiting on the Lord's return in just the same way. What a thought, to hang on every minute just waiting for our Lord and seeing what we can do for Him before He comes. That is what we are supposed to be doing. We just get so carried away with our daily lives. It is a very encouraging thought to me so I wanted to share it!
Matthew 24:42-44 "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh."
