I Don't Want To Be Left Behind
Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Okay, so I am a Christian and I see what's going on in the world and how much prophecy has been fulfilled. I really believe we are in the beginning of the last days and that the rapture can happen at any time. I'm finding it increasingly hard to focus on my job, exercising, sparking and most everything else. The bible says when you see these things begin to come to pass to "look up, for your redemption draws near." But All I can think about is if He comes for His church today, will I be included or will He say "I never knew you". I've been too wrapped up in my own life and have not been devoting the time and effort needed to reach others for Christ. I spend so much time tracking food and logging it in and reading all the articles plus working 55 hours a week that my time with the Lord, bible study and prayer time have seriously suffered. I may have to step back from all this for a while and make sure my relationship with Jesus is as it should be. I have been struggling with this for the last month or so and it's affecting all areas of my life. I know there are some who are non-believers who will think I'm foolish but I hope those of you who believe as I do will understand. I'm not leaving, I will be back, but this is something I need to do. Thanks for your understanding and prayers.

All we need to do is sit at His feet and learn from Him, and His word.
The Bible passages below have been a great help for me. HUGS!

Proverbs 3:Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. K.J.V. in Public Domain
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. K.J.V. in Public Domain
Isaiah 40:Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. K.J.V. in Public domain
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

It's great that you realize that you need to take time to be with God. He's been waiting for you and wanting you to come back to Him. A lot of times our lives are busy and we don't have time to pray, but God is looking at how we live through our actions too. "Go forth and preach the Gospel and if necessary - use words." Since we are made in His image and likeness we have the ability to love how he loved. By showing your love for others and treating people with dignity is following His will.
Before you go to bed at night just open the Bible and read a passage, it's actually really relaxing. Also when something good happens to you, make sure you take time to thank God. Praying while driving is also excellent - just have a conversation with God. i hope this helped a little.
