Short and Sweet

Had a thought today, right before my rushed Bible reading as I headed out the door. "I'm not gonna live forever, but I'm gonna LIVE today." Kind of odd, right? I should have known He was up to something. In 1 Thessalonians 4:1, I got my continued (from the last week or so) answer: "Finally brothers, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more." (italics are mine) I sat there, mouth hanging open, as I felt His Arm on my shoulder. He knows all about the struggles I face at work; the pettiness, the filth, the ungodly words that fly thick and fast loud enough for all to hear, and especially my desire to NOT be there, but to be here at my computer, writing for Him! Jesus and I have spoken at length about this matter; and He assures me it will happen in His Time, not mine. But I still get that rush when He shows me, right in His Word! that He hears and knows all about it.
