I love the beach! Anyone who knows me can tell you exactly how true this is. In fact, a handful of readers just said “DUH!” I try to go at least a few times each year. Each time I’ve got a trip planned, I start counting down. The anticipation is excruciating and wonderful all at the same time. If I close my eyes, I can feel the sand under my feet, hear the waves crashing, feel the sun beating down on my face….oh, I’m sorry, what were we talking about? Anyway, you get the point – I’m a true beach lover.
As believers, followers of Christ, Jesus Freaks, we should be experiencing the same type of anticipation. When will I get to spend time with Him? What does His Word have for me today? When is He coming back for us??? We have been given the most incredible gift – a Savior who calls us friend. And, we’ll get Heaven thrown in, too!
So, are you living in a state of anticipation? If not….why?
Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Romans 12:11-12 The Message
Be blessed and tell someone that you love them!
