This world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever. 1 John 2:17
Dear Fading World,
I am so over you. This is my 50th year of life and I find no pleasure in you. I spend a great deal of my time wanting to enjoy you and coming up empty. I also spend a great deal of my time working with others sorting out the destruction you have sent their way and trying to help them find peace and it is not found in you. You are a world that is fading and I will not hope in you.
“But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever”
Not forever in this fading world but in a world that promises much more. I have come to the space in my life that I live for THAT promise. The promise of what is to come and that promise can only be attained through Jesus.
OH HERE WE GO…..yep the woman shares her heart and it is the same thing time and time again…JESUS!
Move on, swipe right or left or un-heart me or whatever social media tells you to do….I will preach Jesus. I have been called to walk alongside hurting, lost, hopeless women and each time one story trumps the next. I’m not even surprised anymore at the sin, the separation, the disasters that the enemy leaves in its path…it is the fading world at work. Here is what I know for the sweet women that desperately seek help and hope and end up on my doorstep….Jesus is the only answer. Their circumstances are really bad, really stupid, really hopeless. They want desperately to fix their marriages, to get a job, to help their children, to do right, but they are sucked into the deep abyss of the Fading World!
Friends, Please, I plead with you, consider Jesus.
“BEHOLD I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW.” Revelation 21:5
This world is fading away and all your serious circumstances and real life disasters are going to be obliterated and you will be left standing before the One who says “Behold, I make all things new.” Please know Him so that when this world is faded and you are standing alone before the Great One, The God, Father Almighty, you will BE MADE NEW!
“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-3
As the world fades, seek the things above. If you don’t even know what this means or don’t even know where to begin but you know in your heart that the world is fading and if you don’t get some help you will fade too, then reach out to me. Go to a local church and get help. Find the One who will make all your things new!
I write this because I have seen and heard so much. I know that the world is fading and I don’t want you to fade with it. Be renewed, be assured, and rest in TRUE hope and peace.
I love you,
