Prepared

The featured image is a picture I took of corn leaves silhouetted.

I’m usually a prepared person. I set out my clothes for the next day and hang them on the bathroom door. I know what time to be ready and I make sure I am. I know the family’s agenda and work all that I need to do (blog, school, work out, dance, the list goes on and on…) into the schedule. Heck, I even think I about when to go to bed and wake up so that I’ll get plenty of hours of sleep and not be irritable the next day πŸ˜‰. I plan how I can get done early enough in the day to be spontaneous later! I plan. I can plan because I know when everything has to happen. But as Christians, we can’t plan when to be ready for Jesus’ return. We have to be constantly prepared! The first step is knowing where you’ll eternally end up. The second step is growing in the Lord so that we’ll have rewards in heaven when He returns, and no one knows when that is, no matter what they say. So are you prepared? Are you ready to see your God and go to your eternal home? We should live always thinking, if Jesus saw me now, would He be proud?

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. -1 Thessalonians 5:2, KJV

Thanks for reading! Are you a prepared person like me, or more of a go with the flow, roll with the punches kind of person? Comment below! God bless y’all, BibleBloggerGirl

        It’s very rural actually! I mean, I live in an apartment now, but back at home we have woods behind our yard. There’s a stream too. It’s gorgeous there! Lots of good memories.

      4. That sounds really similar to where I live! Fields in front, woods with a creek in the back. Tons of good memories too 😁

    I love how you put this. People tend to shy away from me when I try to discuss (openly) about end of time scriptures. All people like to tell me is, “All I can do is be ready.” In fact, this should be a post I cover eventually haha, because I feel being ready is understanding the scriptures, even the tough ones. But like you said, it is not about what we say, it’s about the daily choice to be prepared. Thank you for this! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh, thank you! Sometimes, Ezekiel and others are tough to understand, or sometimes we just don’t want to hear the words in other passages πŸ˜‰

        Very true! Within the past five years, when I first started looking at those scriptures, God has started to show connections. One thing Christ gives us, even through trials, and eventual tribulation is assurance of His love, and God’s plan. Amen! πŸ™‚
