Watch and Pray....

It's been a while since I've posted here at Seashells and Lavender.
It's time I pull my head out of the sand, and write down what's been laid on my heart.

I'm not a dooms dayer....but I DO believe in biblical prophecy.
I don't pick and choose parts of the Bible that suit me....I believe the whole book....from beginning to end.
If God does not change, then we've got some splainin' to do real soon.
I live by the sayings of "watch, and pray....no one knows the hour, and know one knows the day."
"He comes as a thief in the night."

The weather patterns have been bizarre, to say the least.
The cloud formations this past summer were amazing! We witnessed wall clouds that were so close to the ground, they were almost super-natural. The lightening storms were scary...and they didn't produce thunder!  When did we ever have such storms in cold weather? Lake Superior just had a huge water spout on Saturday during cold weather!
This past weekend a weatherman joked about the bizarre weather, and said if he sees locust, he knows what's coming next...LOL.

In difficult times, it's easy to become discouraged, and afraid.
What keeps us going?
Why do we push ourselves to get out of bed in the morning?
For me....it's my family.
But what about those overwhelming times when I need someone to lean on?
Who do I have that keeps me going when all seems hopeless?
But He's not a physical being that can hold you, or speak to you...you might say.
His Word is a physical manifestation that I can hold in my two hands. I can read what is written, and receive it into my heart and be comforted and encouraged, and loved.
I am assured of what will be.
No matter what happens here.
There is truth, and power, and light in His Word.
If you want to know what's happening in these days.....read your Bible....it's in there!!!
The weather is just the tip of the iceberg.
then.....watch and pray.....
