Do You Think We're Living in the Last Days?

This is one of the most important questions I'll ever ask. The Book of Revelation speaks to what the end of time (on earth) will be like. Do you think the end is near? I tend to think so myself. I realize that scares a lot of you. But if you think about it, we're all going to die anyway. So, why does what the Bible says about the end of days frighten us? I'll admit, it's alarming to see so many of these prophesies starting to happen. I'm not worried for me though. I'm worried for those of you who are not saved. Because death on earth is not the end. A new life continues after death. If hell is the continuation of your life after death, then you will suffer forever. There will be no end to your suffering. For those of us who believe and trust Christ to transition and mold us for his needs, we will live on forever with him in peace. No more pain, no more suffering in the next life. Doesn't that sound wonderful?

I hope you'll join me for my Revelation series over the next year or so. I want all who read these posts to find Christ and accept him as Savior. I want to share stories of people who didn't even believe in God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit and what changed their minds to become believers - and crusaders even - for our Divine Trinity. 

Last days

The good news is God will come to you. No one is too far gone or too far away for God to reach. And don't think you have to change your ways for him to accept you. You will never be able to change without his help anyway. He wants you just as you are so he can teach you how to be who he wants you to be for his service. Because Revelation isn't about just the end of days; it's about the Truth being revealed to you. The song Mended by Matthew West tells a beautiful story of Truth, of a Savior who loves everyone regardless of how they have behaved or how the world treats them. 

And from Heaven Awaits, a true story is told about a lady who died and had a conversation with God about how we are special because of who God is in us and not what others tell us we are. Somebody reading this needs to hear this today. How do I know? Because I wasn't looking for this story today. It was in the YouTube side bar when I looked for the song above. AND it's something I needed to hear myself - even though I can actually feel God's closeness.

Revelation is about a God who loves you and sent his only Son to die for the world's sins, the Son who endured the pain and agony on the cross, and the Holy Spirit who will come to live in you to help you become the servant you were born to be.

After all, isn't it better to serve for something good than to serve sin? Maybe thinking about it this way will help you understand: serving sin is bondage; serving the Lord is freedom. Some people think there are too many rules to follow in Christianity. If you think of most of these "rules" as advice or instructions, it just sounds like you're listening to a friend, which is who our God is. He's our friend, and he wants us to live with him eternally. His advice helps us make right decisions, with the assistance of his Holy Spirit, to help not only ourselves but others get to heaven. Eternal happiness without pain or worries in a land where we'll never grow old will be our reward for following his Holy Advice.

Matthew 22:37-40 NLT states:

37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

Paul said to the Galatians in Galatians 5:14 NLT:

For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Peter tells us in 1 Peter 4:7-8:

7 The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers. 8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.

So, if you can love God and others, you've pretty much got this. And again, the Revelation series isn't going to be about just the end of days; it's going to also be a journey of self-discovery in Christ and how to bring others along on the journey. Do you love yourself enough to come along on this journey? 

I'm looking forward to serving you and hope you'll join the fun. You have nothing to lose but have much to gain.

Blessings in Christ,

Patricia

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d
