It is a wonderful time to be alive! Winter cannot stop our hearts from celebrating the truth of God, and His work being done on earth. In my heart I would curl up on the sofa with a blanket and cup of tea and not move, but there is much good to be done. There is a time for tea and blankets, Thank God.

"And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, {Ephesians 1:9}

Do you like mysteries? I used to like  the t.v. series "Murder she wrote", which was based on the Agatha Christie novels.There wasn't any blood, or gory details, just a good mystery to figure out. Never as simple as the butler did it, but always a good challenge. I like this sort of mystery, a thinking kind of setting where you can't sit back and not engage.

God hasn't hid His will from us, otherwise He never would have sent his son. He wants us to know his ways, and he wants us to listen. Not only did he plan out our salvation, it pleased him, a lot. Why did it please him?  He wanted you to be born, so that he would have a relationship with you. God is all about relationship. What exactly does this mean for our everyday lives?

It means that you count in God's eternal plan, and purposes for this world. Every thing you do. Every thing you say. Everywhere you go. You have an opportunity as I do, to influence some one for God. Jesus plans on coming back to this earth very soon. Many don't know him, but he wants to give them every opportunity to know him before it is too late.

When he returns every sickness will cease from ever harming another person. No one will go hungry. There will be no war, or fighting. The very earth that we live on will react and rejoice. No more decay, not a flower will die or wilt. I don't think we will have to think about calories, or foods that will hurt us. We will have banquets that will last for a long time, because no one will be running here or there.

When we honor God in our dailyness, he is closer to his coming. Why does he wait? More souls to come to His saving grace. God would not have any to perish, but some will not turn their hearts to the truth. Pray, pray, pray for the lost. Every one wins as more come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Won't you pray?
