So many things are running thru my head as I watched the snow fall today. What an Awesome God we have! Look at what beauty is in the snow. How many things I have left to finish before winter...and then it hit me! We have no idea when He (God) is coming back! We had better be ready!
My family has had the privilege of having some pretty cool conversations lately around salvation. Avi has been asking so many questions and trying to piece together why Adam and Eve sinned, Why God sent His Son as a baby, Why Jesus died on the cross with nails in His hands and feet and blood and it hurt Him, that He didn't stay dead, and then asking Who is your Savior? It is an amazing privilege and responsibility to be here answering those questions for her!
I was then thinking about how we still have a few projects needing done before the frost sets in the ground. I was thinking how I knew the snow was coming and though I was mostly ready for it, (not gonna lie), there are some things I didn't do. and then it hit me! This is no different than salvation. God tells us be ready, He is coming, but how often do we live "almost ready" for Him. Sure, I knew the snow was coming, but I still put off some things, not completely ready for the snow to come. Well, ready or not, the snow is here and winter is here, sure we will have a little time left to wrap up outside, but unlike weather, when Jesus comes back, thats it. We are either ready or we aren't. Are you ready? Here are a few pictures from Avi's booklet that she is going over and processing. Hearing the hurt when she sees Jesus on the cross and the concern for the pain that He went thru has made me think all over again what He went thru for me on that cross! And the second picture shows that He is alive!
