Are you ready?

I watched the news this morning and saw the devastation in Missouri. Last month, I watched as family members searched through leveled houses praying they found their family members alive in Mississippi. You can turn on the news and see more devastation throughout our country than ever before. While I'm watching all this unfold, I can't help but wonder, Is everyone ready? For those who aren't ready, or the one's who don't believe in God at all, this is just a fragment of what you will endure the Lord comes back. The fear, the panic, the sadness is all just a glimpse of what is in store for your life. I am happy to say that I wont have to endure any of that. What a glorious day that will be, at least for some. I am scared for the people who will be left behind. One thing that scares me more than anything is that people that I love will be left behind, and I wont remember them in heaven. Anything that brings sadness will not be in heaven. For those reading this that may be saved, do you know someone close to you who isn't? Are you praying for them? Talking to them about God? If not, DO!! The time is nearing. God is coming back for his children. We don't know the time, or the day, but we should remember that God doesn't make promises that He doesn't fulfill!!

I can hear the Lord screaming to His children that something is going to change. If we took the devastation in Missouri, or Mississippi and we told the country that it was a terrorist attack, what would happen? American's would be furious. They would start listening! But because God is allowing these things to happen without putting a name on the side of the tornado, we see what is going on, but we aren't listening to what God is really telling us. God is angry people. Our country has pushed God out of every building, and in most homes, people are leaving God outside their home. He is trying to show us He is still in control. He wants us to get back on our knees!!

Based on the Bible, we still have some tribulations yet to come. The trails and tribulations aren't really all that important. Because if you trust in God, he will protect you. We live in a scary place... but God is watching and waiting for His people to turn TO him.

I know you have all heard it, Get Ready, Or Get Left... So... Get on your knees and find out what God is wanting YOU to do for Him.
