Monday's Dose - 20th February 2012

The Day After

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: - 1 Peter 3:15.

Holidays are wonderful! You have a great meal, and enjoy fellowship with relatives or friends. But, then, there is the 'day after'. The day after leaves you with the clean up job. It leaves you with the leftovers that seem to last and last. There's nothing like having leftovers and not having to cook, but when they keep lasting, it does get a little old. And, being from the 'old school', one hates to throw out anything. But, nevertheless, the dog gets lots of leftovers!

Then, there are the 'day after' blues. You've all had them. You built yourself up for the holiday to a big high. And, immediately after everyone left, you started feeling lonely. You miss the celebration already! And, then, the day after, you are so down, it's hard to function. Holidays can certainly be a bummer!

Remember reading about the 'day after' in the Bible? Jesus was crucified and placed in a tomb. But, after three days, when the women went to check on him, the angels told them that he was not there - he had Risen!

God's Word is Truth. There will be a 'day after' again. The world will realize that, indeed, He has come for His people, and they have been left behind. You don't want to experience that 'day after'. So, be prepared, get ready, dress in the full armor of God, and keep your light shining! HE is coming back!

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, we know there is always a 'day after', and we feel low and lonely. But, knowing the great reward is awaiting each of us in eternity, help us to hold on to you and your Truth. We give you praise! Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer.
Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
