I have been rather lax this week with writing – why?
Occupied I suppose — I am anticipating more occupation mid-week next week too.
But that does not mean you all are not on my mind — I have a blanket request for you all in my daily prayer journal.
I read 2 Thessalonians 2 today and made many notes in my notebook. I also had questions. Imagine that, huh?
I am not prepared to share it all, but I am inclined to share a comforting thought.
The people of Thessalonica were alarmed; some folks had told them YESHUA had already returned.
We’d be alarmed too, would we not at such a message?
So Paul set about to set their minds at ease.
I don’t have all the answers and I have more questions.
There are matters of eschatology that are beyond my learning at this time and that had been concerning me.
But today, coupled with a prayer a dear sister prayed with me this week, I have this direction:
Don’t be afraid. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, don’t be afraid to think outside of that traditional box; don’t be afraid to explore for the TRUTH.
And as you do: Trust Father to protect.
Trust Holy Spirit to teach.
Trust JESUS to return.
And in the meantime occupy!
Let us occupy ourselves with listening, obeying, loving, and going about our lives doing good.
Amen and amen – make it so of us too, Father.
