"Daddy, I can't see you!"

One night a house caught fire and a young boy was forced to flee to the roof. Below, the father stood on the ground with outstreched arms calling to his son "Jump! I'll catch you!" He knew the boy had to jump to save his life. All the boy could see, however, was flame, smoke and blackness. As can be imagined, he was afraid to leave the roof. His father kept calling "Jump! I'll catch you!" but the boy protested, "Daddy, I can't see you!" The father replied "But I can see you, and that is all that matters!"

There are times that perhaps we can't see God, we can't feel God, we can't hear God; but He sees us, He knows us, He hears us, He is there. And dear friends, that is all that matters! We can believe and we must believe! Our unbelief could cost us our life! God is too good to betray our trust, will you have faith in Him?

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Running out of Time

I find myself saying it a lot these days... "Running out of time".

Umbrella's over our heads and seeds, we try to plant in the rain... A little break in the clouds and we run outside to glue what PVC pipe we can. A little sprinkles and chilling winds, we go out to mow and cut the grass... I head to the house to get a part thinking "I wish the weather would clear up, we are running out of time". Friday comes and the whole list of things to do. I think "I'm running out of time" and I work a little harder.

I think ahead to the times for Campmeetings and weddings and the time in between those events and all that must be accomplished between now and then... and I think "running out of time". I have no idea how we are going to get everything done and be ready for those events... Time is flying....

Then it strikes me... Yes! We all are running out of time! Every moment that's passing is less time we have to live on earth. We are running out of time to make our lives right with God (if we haven't already) and to perfect our characters. We don't have time to dally around and think we have all the time in the world to give God our hearts and our all and to put Him first in our lives.

The world is running out of time, for each moment's that's passing is bringing us nearer to Christ's second coming. We are running out of time to spread the news of salvation to others...

Friend's let's remember that we are running out of time and search our hearts more, pray more, work harder, give more effort...

We are running out of time so may we let our lights shine a little brighter.
