“Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” (Matthew 24:44 ESV)
On Fridays I usually write something that is meant to encourage the reader…something creative and easy to remember that you can find helpful.
The cares of this world and the trials of life have sucked all the creativity out of me…but I will offer one thing to those who are in deep, long trials.
Every morning I get up to an alarm even though I currently have no need to do so.
I shower, I groom, I get my coffee, I take my medicine…I’m ready.
There is a set of pressed clothes waiting in my closet, while I wait for the call that means I need to wear them.
I get ready for the day, even though I don’t have any plans for the day or know what the day holds.
I’m ready even though I’ve been ready for almost a year and a half without anything to be ready for.
I’m ready because His mercies are new every morning and in faith I anticipate His mercies for that day.
I’m ready because He is going to come into my circumstances at a time and in a way that I don’t expect…I need to be ready.
I’m ready because He promised to never leave or forsake me….which means He’s with me and working all these things for my good and His glory.
I’m ready because no situation is hopeless when your hope is in Him.
I’m ready because He told me to be ready.
Make your own application…
