I am really interested to see what God is going to do over the next few months.
You see, I have these seasonal friends in my life. When I am surrounded by them, I instinctively know that there is some kind of change that is either occuring or about to occur. They are some wise women who have been in my life for over a decade…well over a decade. When we all start communicating, I am so comforted, until I realize who is in my life again 🙂
I’ve had the sense that I was entering a transitional season in my life again…but now I see it clearly. I am one of those people who really doesn’t mind transition. I actually like change. Now that I realize that I have my Ya-Ya’s, I’m feeling less antsy and more excited. I wish that I could divulge more details. I can’t. Because I don’t know them yet.
Something that I do know, that I’ve written quite a bit lately, is that I can sense God’s move in the heavenlies. Let’s be honest. Satan has been on overdrive lately. If you are unaware of this, watch the news. Read the MSN homepage. The Good News is this: Satan and his cronies lose. Read the last few chapters of your Bible. Read any of the gospels.
A clarion call is being heard throughout the land. The battle is on. Eternity is at stake. Billions of people have yet to hear that Jesus loves them. Whose side are you on? Are you fighting, like Jesus did, for the souls of the dying? Are you showing people the love of Jesus? Are you being Jesus to a dying world? Or are you getting in your own way, too fearful to smile and say hello to someone? There are people whose are just waiting for someone to recognize that they are alive. Are you willing to be the difference?
I am passionate about snatching people out of the clutches of hell. I know that it is Jesus who saves people. Please don’t insult me by stating the obvious. However, I want to see everyone I know in heaven. I want to see the man who works at my local Wawa on the other side of eternity. I want to see that crazy bus driver who gave me motion sickness on the other side of eternity. I want to see Osama bin Laden on the other side of eternity. I want to see everyone in my church on the other side of eternity. (Did I say that out loud?) It literally keeps me awake at night that there are so many people who are going to hell.

Great post…I understand exactly what you are writing about…And you are right, God is up to something…My daily goal is to seek…
Two quick things…
1. I’m glad you mentioned Osama Bin Laden…I always ask, what if we see him in heaven???…Too many people discount the Grace of God…Saul of Tarsus killed Christians…
2. What’s WaWa??…Remember, I a Georgia boy…
Blessings from the home of Jeff Francouer,
I was in Boston last week, and I told my sister that there weren’t any Wawas and she said that “WaWa” is a wierd name. Wawa’s is a place where you buy your hoagies, and they make them according to your touch screen expectations even if the things you put on the touch screen don’t go together. You also buy your coffee there, as well as your tasty kakes. The ATM machines at your local WAWA is always free – so that’s where you go to get cash. There is also a tendency for them to tear down normal Wawas and build Super Wawas that also sell gasoline. They are a 24 hour convenience store that is located every few blocks in Pennsylvania. Morning, noon, or night WaWas Ice Cream is always right.
