Consider the time

Time can get away from us cant it? I haven't been online to blog in a few weeks. Even as I ponder that thought I am reminded how precious every day is. We need to spend our time sewing into the Kingdom of God. I have such an urgency to complete the good work that the Father has begun in me. I am aware now more then ever that I have a calling to fulfill. I guess I am a late bloomer. I wish I could say that I was this sure and this focused and this passionate when I was younger. Coulda, shoulda, woulda, is a colossal waste of time. Now I intend to press forward like there is no tomorrow. How glorious to know that there is always a tomorrow. It is a matter of where and how we will be spending tomorrow. For the believer we will be in heaven, but, sadly for the ones who never knew Him, eternity will be in the Lake Of Fire. Sure makes you have an urgency to sew into the Kingdom doesn't it? If we could just look at every person and remember they too were made in the image of Christ. To offer them any less then we desire to receive would be offering Christ Himself less. What a challenge.
I am so thankful every day for the privilege of knowing Him. He truly is my Abba Father. All I want to do is to be pleasing to Him and fulfill the calling that He has on my life. As some were call to be prophets and some evangelists etc I want to seek out with all my heart the part that God has for me to play and to do it to His glory. When I stand in front of Him in the throne room I want to hear Well done...
Every day I desire to know...what do you have for me today Lord. Sewing in, sewing out whatever it is,I pray I can be faithful and obedient. I thank Him for His Grace and Mercies. I wish I could say I get it right most of the time but to say some of the time would be more accurate. I just keep aiming higher...keeping my eye on the prize. I pray that you are inspired to consider your calling and the time you spend investing into Kingdom things.
Here I am...send me.

I think this is a great line, it would make a great motto. Something I need to remember.

Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Amen! Great thoughts!

I was thinking about this today with a dear friend that has moved. I was at her house helping her sister clean. Some children came by that she had ministered to. They were so sad she had moved away. She had really taken time to sew into their lives. May we make the most of every opportunity!
