fathers tears

The older I get the more I look forward to going to heaven.

I want to go home to be with my Abba…my Daddy.

I want to be able to go to that First Person that I have been waiting

an eternity to see. The one who called me from eternity past, out of the mind of God.

I want to thank JESUS for ALL that HE has done for me. And then there is that Second Person.

Who is that Second Person for you?

Do you have any idea who that person is? Someone you love dearly.

Someone you desperately want be in Heaven with you!

Someone who has not come to know JESUS yet?

For me, all my Second Persons have died already. And they ALL have died without knowing the LORD.

So, Determine this DAY, in your heart, that YOU will stand boldly before those you love and give them the GOSPEL.

There is no greater gift that you can give them!

Then maybe… just maybe… the LORD will allow you to plant the last seed that brings Salvation to the person that you love.

Then in Heaven, the two of you will cry and weep together, for the Joy of the fact that you both know Jesus, and the Joy that you will both have an eternity together.

Then Jesus…. who already took His Nail Scarred Hands and wiped away the tears of sorrow from your eyes…will rejoice before each of you… as the two of you wipe the tears of JOY from each other’s eyes.

Now…how AWESOME would that be?  

AMEN and All God’s Children said AMEN!

My Tears

Have you ever given any thought to the tears Jesus will wipe from your eyes? Why am I going to be crying before Him? Maybe because as hard as I tried while here on Earth encased in this broken vessel of clay, the motives of my heart have always been tinged with pride.

Maybe because in my own way I too have Mocked God by trying to blend into the sewage around me like a Chameleon instead of standing alone for HIM?

Maybe because I haven’t taken His command to share the Gospel serious enough and He will show me the hundreds of times I could have made a difference in someone’s life by planting a seed for the Holy Spirit to water.

I will stand before Him and use words to give an account of the life He gave me to live out before HIM. He will then give an account of the times He had given me words to speak, but I chose to remain silent.

To my shame my life is full of words never spoken. Words that were meant to give life by planting seeds into the hearts of people that God put into my path. Thousands upon thousands of words never spoken have filled my memory with If Only Moments.

Only God knows the answer to “what If I…obeyed and spoke”

In the end when we stand before HIM and HE wipes the tears from our eyes, the lesson we will learn is that our lives will be measured not only by what we did, but also by what we did not do.

Because you still live in this vessel of clay, everyday you have life is a day of hope that you will walk before HIM in obedience. I know that I am weak and I know I am not Holy. But, I also know He said my weakness will show His strength if I look to Him for help.

I know that HE called me to stand out in the crowd, to let the light within me shine out like a pillar of fire in the wilderness surrounding me.

Jesus says to you and I:

Let ME help you…. I have walked in your shoes…Come….take up your CROSS and…Follow ME.

If you feel the need … then ask Him to help you match up your walk with your talk …I have…. and HE WILL… if you follow HIM.
