If Jesus was coming back next month and people were shouting from the rooftops I really don't think I would believe them, since we do not know the day or hour of his return but I would continue to do what I am doing, serving him, helping others, praying for others, and I would have to hurry up and finish the book that God told me to write. I guess I better get to work on that since we don't know when he is coming.
Pebbles (Daddy God's Girl)
I asked God to spare me pain. And God said "No," suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me. I asked God to make my spirit grow. And God said "No," I must grow on my own as he prunes me to make me fruitful. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. And God said "No," I will give you life that you may enjoy all things. I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me. And God said, "Now you got it!"

Please Lord, give Shelly and all of us the strength to carry out your wishes. If I knew Jesus was coming back next month, I would continually ask for forgiveness, make amends for any wrongs and I too, would shout from the rooftops and throw a party!

Dear Jesus I pray that you will help Shelly to lead more people to the saving knowledge of you.
If I knew Jesus were coming back I would let more people know about him and his grace and mercy. Lord I pray that you will fill me with boldness so that I can spread your word to the lost and dying world. Please help me to be about your business and not get caught up in the vanities of this world. I want my life to be a living sacrifice to you Lord.
Dear God, I pray that you bring the lost to Shelly and that you give her an opening or a way to invite these people to her church. Shelly has such a love and yearning for you Lord. Please guide her in all her ways and decisions.In Jesus holy and mighty name, Amen
If I knew Jesus was coming back next month...I would be shouting the truth off of builing roofs to anyone who would listen...I wish I had the courage to do that now. Lord I pray; please forgive me for being such a coward. Forgive me that I allow those bounderies in my life. Help me to break those bonds and to speak freely of your love and sacrifice. In Jesus name, Amen

Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." John 21:29 Amen
I realized after writing this that I need to start inviting people to church. This takes me out of my comfort zone. I can't see myself walking up to a stranger asking them if they want to go to my church. I have also realised that I need to prepare the way of the Lord, and bringing people closer to God. Besides doing all these things, if Jesus was coming back next month I would throw a big party, & celebrate and rejoice his return.
Please bless me with your prayers,so that new people will come into my life that I may lead them to Christ. Please pray that I can find people who need God's love and needs a church to grow in His love. Thanks so much Shelly
IF YOU KNEW THAT JESUS WOULD BE COMING BACK IN A MONTH WHAT WOULD YOU DO DIFFERENTLY?
If you knew that Jesus was coming next month what would you do differently? Would you say sorry to someone, forgive someone, go back to church, start reading the bible?
No one knows when Jesus will return, not even the angels in heaven.
When Jesus comes back he won't give us a month, a day, not even an hour to make things right in our lives.
What do you need to do to make things right in your life? In what ways can you make your relationship with God stringer? What has God been asking you to do? Say , you don't know? It all starts with a prayer.
Dear Jesus, I am asking you to help me in a new way today. I want my life to be pleasing to you. Enable my thoughts and prayers to reflect my needs and problems, so that I can talk freely to you about anything in my life. I am asking you to completely change me. Give me a willing spirit, and an open mind to accept all that I receive during the time of delivery. Lord help me to make things right and pleasing to you. Help me to trust my instincts, and not to doubt anything after this prayer. For I know my father in heaven has accepted this prayer and will help me. In Jesus name I pray amen.
