A PROMISE OF REST! Hebrews 4 leaves an exhortation to REST! TODAY not SOMEDAY. Someday is not a day. We have been given 86,400 seconds today to take advantage of opportunities. Today may be made up of little things. But little things aren’t little. They make big differences. How we spend our todays is how we spend our years-as a story that is told.
Today the little things may be just clean sheets, a meal with family who remains, an unexpected call from someone you love, just blowing bubbles! Hearing children’s laughter or grownups laughing out loud even giggling! Maybe it will be just giving or receiving encouragement. Or remembering how fresh hot coffee smelled early in the mornings when you were on a camping trip with your Dad. Maybe the taste of hot maple syrup on hot biscuits, yum! What about a night at the Symphony? Or the excitement of preparing for worship in God’s house on Sunday Mornings! Ah,remembering the front porch swing on my aunt’s house where with every creak of the chain, secrets were shared and laughter rang out-memories!
Today! Not Someday I’m listening to rain fall on very dry lawns and the smell is wonderful! Today I’ve met big hearted people making a difference in people’s lives.
Today…the voice of reason and the voice of history and the voice of experience unite in one loud voice and shout! TODAY! We have been given today! One second at a time. Today we can stop and pray for the HARVEST AMERICA CRUSADE in Philadelphia PA with Evangelist Greg Laurie. Today I prayed over the venues that will be hosting the telecast here in Tyler TX. I pray for lost people to be drawn to these areas and to find JESUS TODAY! Go make a difference in someone’s live TODAY! TODAY SPREAD THE FRAGRANCE OF CHRIST.
