I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion: The Return

We go about our business.
Everything as usual.
Suddenly it all changes,
Jesus has returned
Not for those who lie and steal
And wink at sin
Not for those bent on revenge
Filled with anger and unforgiveness
Not for those for whom religion
Is a talisman or tradition
Rather than a faithful relationship
Not for those who value
Finances,
Power,
Prestige
Background and education
Above Him
Creator; Lord
For those who seek peace and hope
In government or a charismatic leader
Rather than salvation in
The living Word
He comes for those who honor Him
In Heart, soul, mind,
In thought, word and deed.
Is my heart ready for Him.?

When He comes
Will He find me faithful?

I Thessalonians 5:2-3, 9 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. …For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
