My sister, time is running out. Jesus is coming. Get your house in order. Jesus is coming. Set your affections on things above, not on things on earth. There’s no time to focus on your inadequacies. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. Keep your hands to the plow. Keep a praise in your mouth and excitement in your heart. The one who loves you is coming. The one who has kept you all the while is coming. The one who has never left your side is returning for you. Stay watchful. Stay ready. Jesus is coming.
Father God, stir in my heart an expectancy for you. Remove my focus from myself and fix my eyes on you. Help me see that you truly are on your way. Remove all distractions and hindrances, LORD. Help me to live my life as if you could return today. Help me get things in order. I repent of anything I’ve done or said that displeased you, and I receive your love and forgiveness. Help me work while it’s day. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel” Mark 1:15, ESV.
