Sunshine’s Word of the Day
Good Morning blog family and friends! Dear blog, I’ve missed you! My family and I are doing much better, thank you for the prayers. I pray that everyone had a blessed and safe Christmas holiday. God is truly in the blessing business. Enjoy your day and if you received a lot of snow please make a snowman, snow woman, or snow family. (Giggling)
John 14:3 (New King James Version)
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
Today’s Word: PREPARE
Prepare means to put in proper condition or readiness; to get ready. 2010 has been an interesting year for many and is quickly approaching its end. Can you believe that 2011 will be here in five days? We’ll ready or not here it comes. Each year many people come up with new year’s resolutions. We sit around saying what we will do different in 2011; whether it’s lose weight, relocate, become more involved in ministry, get a better job, end some relationships or negative friendships, and the list goes on. We say all of these things and end up unsuccessful because we haven’t prepared for the new year. We haven’t prepared for the change that will take place in our lives.
We have five days to put things in proper condition or readiness for 2011. Don’t wait until January 1st to make a change, start preparing for your change now. Even Jesus knew the importance of being prepared. Jesus left to put things in proper order for us so that when the appointed time comes everything will be ready for all of His children. It takes time to get things in order for change or to make things ready for people to move to the next level. Why not start today.
Start preparing for 2011 by praying today for God to equip you for the new journey. Start getting your words together to end some unhealthy relationships, start packing up some of the things of your former life to make room for the things of your new life as a Christian, start throwing out the unhealthy foods and start getting active today for your new physical life. You will have a better success rate of completing a new task or pressing through a journey if you are prepared.
2011 is coming whether you are ready for it to come or not, put your life in the proper condition by reading God’s word more, fasting and praying more, and going to church more. Don’t wait until January 1st, prepare for a new spiritual life today.
Ask yourself: What are some things that you need to prepare for? Are you prepared for when Jesus comes?
Food for thought: More people spend more time preparing for summer vacation then they do preparing their spiritual relationship with Christ.
I pray that you have a blessed day in Jesus Name.
