Evening friends and family. It’s been a while since there was a Serene Saturday post from me, so let’s get into it.
This afternoon after church, I had to take home one of our church members-Danyon. Fun Fact: When I was a little kid I once believed he was my father after my actual dad told me that he was. Boy was I upset at the end of the day when I learned that it was just a joke. What parent lets their kid think they’re adopted?! Mine apparently. Love you Dad. Anyway, one of the topics of discussion during the car ride was the secondary coming of Jesus.
One of many traits I love about my Savior is patience. He is a being that rushes nothing and nobody. Think about it. Instead of making the Earth all at once, He literally took one day at a time. Six days of hard work, and He rested on the seventh day, making it Holy. He was patient and merciful with the people of Nineveh. They were a wicked people, but upon hearing of God’s wrath that would be brought down upon them, they prayed to Him for forgiveness and changed their ways.
Just as God was patient in Biblical times, He is still patient with us. In my faith, we believe in the Second Coming. We believe Christ will return. And no we don’t know when. Sometimes with how downward the world seems to be going with matters such as war; climate change; questionable world leaders; and death rate, sometimes I wish Christ would hurry up. Seems a bit ironic coming from me, since I hate being rushed. Let those thoughts be pushed away. Besides, with how I am spiritually at the moment, am I really ready for Jesus to come. If I’m being honest, I’m not ready.
I think I could work more on my character. You can never go wrong bettering yourself. More biblical knowledge wouldn’t hurt. And I could try to invite more people to church, instead of letting my faith be a mystery. This time that we all have before His hour is a time for us to work on ourselves and there for another, rather than do to whatever we want and go crazy like there is no tomorrow.
Thank you Lord for being a patient God. And thank you all for being patient with me as well.
Have a good day, and God bless.
