Day 23: The Perfect Wait


LIFE is

THE WAITING GAME

with every

TICKING SECOND.

WAITING for the GOOD to come.

WAITING for the NOT~SO~GOOD to leave.

But then what is left.

Your SECOND right now.

And then GOD graciously gives you another

SECOND. 

And HE never stops giving you another

SECOND,

even when you and I leave this

TEMPORARY WORLD.

This WORLD

is our

TEMPORARY HOUSING,

just like a

that is just like a

COCOON

for where we

WAIT,

for that SECOND

 when

we won't be WAITING anymore~

"For this world is not our permanent home;

 we are looking forward to a home yet to come" (Hebrews 13:14).

WAITING for our

 FOREVER HOME~

 “Look! GOD'S dwelling place is now among the people,

and HE will dwell with them. They will be HIS people,

and GOD HIMSELF will be with them and be their GOD.

HE will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away”

(Revelation 2-4).

So how do you WAIT out your breathing

SECONDS?

With an

EXPECTANT JOY

when you KNOW whose you are~

"See what an incredible quality of love the FATHER has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of GOD!"*

So how do you WAIT out your breathing SECONDS?

With an

EXPECTANT HOPE~

"We know that when HE comes and is revealed,

 we will [as HIS children] be like HIM,

because we will see HIM just as HE is [in all HIS glory]"*

So how do we WAIT out our breathing SECONDS

Becoming just like HIM~

"And everyone who has this hope

[confidently placed] in HIM purifies himself,

 just as HE is pure (holy, undefiled, guiltless)" *( John 3:1-3).

So how do you

LIVE LIKE HIM

while WAITING TO BE LIKE HIM?

You LIVE COCOONED IN HIM~

"I have been crucified with CHRIST. It is no longer I who live, but CHRIST who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by FAITH IN the SON OF GOD,

who loved me and gave HIMSELF for me" (Galatians 2:20).

Therefore,

look forward to

LIVING IN EVERY SECOND

with

EXPECTANT

JOY & HOPE

as you

ABIDE IN HIM~

"Now, little children (believers, dear ones),

remain in HIM [with unwavering faith],

 so that when HE appears [at HIS return],

we may have [perfect] confidence and

 not be ashamed and shrink away

from HIM at HIS coming" (I John 2:28).

TICK. TICK. TICK.

"WALK WITH JESUS"
