Beautiful Beyond Description

My friends, be patient until the Lord returns. Think of farmers who wait patiently for the autumn and spring rains to make their valuable crops grow. Be patient like those farmers and don't give up. The Lord will soon be here! Don't grumble about each other or you will be judged, and the judge is right outside the door.

My friends, follow the example of the prophets who spoke for the Lord. They were patient, even when they had to suffer.  In fact, we praise the ones who endured the most. You remember how patient Job was and how the Lord finally helped him. The Lord did this because he is so merciful and kind.

James 5:7-11

When a new baby is born the most difficult time is right before the moment of birth. The time of labor is always hard and sometimes terrible. The nine months of carrying a child requires a lot of patience on the part of both parents.

We are closer now to the time of the return of Jesus than ever before. Many people believe that the labor pains are well under way. Troubles are everywhere in the lives of those who love Jesus. You need patience and faith just to get through one day.

But the "delivery" is coming when we will be delivered from this world and ushered into Heaven to be with Jesus forever! It will happen in the "twinkling of an eye." Faster than you can blink your eyes Jesus will be here and Eternity will begin. And all the trouble we have had here will seem like nothing compared to the Glory we will share with Jesus.

Here is a good thing to do. Live today as if this is the day for the return of Jesus. Be ready for His return every second of this day. Cast off all thoughts that would pull you away from Him. Run away from every temptation. When you become aware of sin in your life, repent immediately! "The Lord will soon be here! "

"Jesus, I have expected You before and I expect You today! May the day that You return be one on which I am waiting and looking for You to come back. Help me to stand strong in my faith in spite of all the problems, difficulties and even suffering I may have today. Lord, I know you are beautiful beyond description, and I know that one day soon my eyes will see Your face! Come quickly, Lord Jesus. Amen."
