Are we Really living in the end times?

I  have been “waiting’ and “watching” for the Lord’s return for 38 years.

As I look around, I wonder if I am more convinced of His soon coming because of my age….or, because the signs of His coming are more evident then ever before.

When I talk with other believers, I often leave the conversation with the realization that they are NOT convinced that we are living in the last days. Maybe we are not talking about it enough or maybe, we don’t believe the times.

Just thinking out loud again.

I Change…He Doesn’t

A kaleidoscope that I once owned  was a cardboard tube with little bits of brightly colored plastic inside and with a hole to look through. While looking through the tube toward the light and twisting the tube, I could watch as the little bits of plastic fell into endless shapes, always changing…no two designs were ever alike.

Our lives are like that kaleidoscope; constantly changing moods, plans, loyalties, interests. Our fortunes are here today and gone tomorrow. On Monday you may get turned down during a job interview and all  is gloomy and sad: on Tuesday someone invites you to lunch and on Wednesday a better job comes through and all is bright. Life constantly changes, constantly surprises, constantly keeps us off stride.

How good it is to know that we can live for a reliable, unchanging God. As unpredictable and changeable our lives on this earth are, so is the presence of God just as predictable and unchanging. We can count on God’s love. It is predictable! It is Certain! It will always be there!  We can count on His forgiveness, on His strength, on His willingness to answer our prayers.

I am comforted by that.
