REVELATION 3:11 

I AM COMING SOON. HOLD FAST WHAT YOU HAVE, SO THAT NO ONE MAY SEIZE YOUR CROWN.

 

Hi all. I hope everyone’s had a good few Months and I’m sorry I haven’t touched base, but like I said from Day One. I never want to write things just to fill space. I always want to make sure I’m writing things that I know are coming from my heart and more importantly the LORDS heart.

Over the past few Months he honestly has been laying things on my heart to write about but I just never felt it was for me to do right in that moment. The best way for me to describe it is.  I felt like over the past few Months he was gradually painting this picture, and at first it may have looked weird and distorted but little by little, piece by  piece it all started to come together and formed itself in to this beautiful masterpiece.

So the question your all probably wanting answered is, what did he show me right? LOL.  What he showed me was the word TIME!!! As I wrote in my previous blog at Thanksgiving.  I not only was going through a lot of scary medical and personal battles myself.  But I also mentioned how I had a lot of friends who were going through some scary stuff themselves, and to be totally honest.  I am sorry to report that not only did One of those people I had mentioned back in November lose their life.

But I also had another friend. Who like me battled Osteogenesis Imperfecta and she lost her life too. Then there was also a 16 Year old Girl who lost her life to Osteogenesis Imperfecta just this past Week.  To be totally honest though the LORD started showing me stuff on TIME long before my friends had passed. Their passing only accelerated what the LORD had already started showing me.

Really this whole idea of TIME started entering my mind when I was writing my book.  Sitting there and not only thinking about all the battles I’ve overcome. But then also thinking about how I was coming up on my 30th Birthday. And how at One time thinking of me being 30 was nearly impossible to imagine.

And during all that, and during a time where I was already thinking I’m blessed.  And thankful for the TIME I’ve had, in the midst of me thinking all that. These people that I mentioned had passed away and then the real smack in the face came. The thing that made me realize more then anything how not only meaningful TIME is, but also how fast it passes us by.

The thing that made me realize more about TIME then anything. Was a phone call my Mom received.  It was my Brother on the line and he was all upset and he explained that his Wife’s Brother had just passed away.  He was not much older then I am and no he was not sick.

I will be honest, I did not know him that well, but his passing made me realize the meaning of TIME more then anything else I had previously mentioned.  Which I know is crazy.  You think someone like me, who is already categorized as “terminally ill” and who has overcome death more times then I care to think of.  Would have already realized the importance of TIME more then anyone in this world right?

Well in a way of life course I did always know.  But I feel this gave me the smack in the head I needed.  Sitting at all these Funerals watching these people bury their loved ones was extremely hard.  I know what it is like to lose someone you love. I have lost my Uncle who was only in his early 50s and I not only lost my Grandparents but I also sat with them during their final Hours, especially my Grandnother. I basically watched her die. Which was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, and again that’s saying a lot for me because I’ve been through a lot LOL.

But thankfully I have never had to feel what it is like to lose a Sibling or a Son or Daughter, or Spouse. Please don’t get me wrong and don’t take what I’m about to say next out of contex, and before I even say it. Please know I’m not trying to belittle anyone’s pain of loss.

But in my opinion losing a Spouse, Child or Sibling is probably the worse kind of pain a person can go through. And sitting there at Two different Funerals.  Where at One I’m watching a Man bury his Wife after an extremely long, hard but also very sweet battle. And then just Weeks later having to go through that all over again. But this time watch a Mother grieving for her Son. Looking around the room and seeing all these young men grieving their just as young friend, I can honestly tell you all. There is nothing in this world that could prepare you for that.

And then also sitting there and looking at all these same people and realizing that their all the people who have been holding me up in prayer for Years and realizing that their prayers took part in keeping me alive. There’s just no words to even describe what that’s like. I mean even the lady that I mentioned who passed. She had known me since I was not even 10 Years old and She had prayed for me daily. And now I’m sitting in a room watching all her loved ones say goodbye. And then thinking about all the Years my Brother feared loosing me and yet now he’s sitting there burying his Brother in law, again there are just no words to describe that.

I have always been prepared for the TIME the LORD comes to take me home. I do not look at that as a negative or scary thing. We all have a TIME limit, we all have a TIME that the LORDS going to come for us.  Please don’t take what I’m saying the wrong way. Don’t think I’m sitting here waiting to die or even thinking about death. Because I’m not, that’s the farthest thing from my mind. I focus on life not death. But what I’m saying is we do have an expiration date and I think we choose to ignore that at times. And please know I’m not saying that to scare anyone or depress anyone.

But during all these trials the one thing that kept running through my mind was TIME…

We forget the importance of TIME and most importantly we forget the importance of LIFE. There is no better TIME to remind you all of the importance of TIME and the importance that each one of our lives play in this world.

We are not put on this earth just to be here or just to enjoy the things that it has to offer. Each and every one of us are here for a reason, for a purpose. We are not put on this earth just to have “fun” we are put here to make a difference.  To be a light in the dark.

Some people take certain things I say the wrong way and think at times that I’m harsh or judge mental or a “kill joy”. I’m not any of those things, but when your someone like me who has fought with everything they have just to breathe. You not only realize the importance of TIME. but also I think the LORD gifts people like me with the eyes to see others more clearly and when I see the potential that certain people have and the gifts they have to make a difference, but yet are wasting that gift.  It kills me and I just want to take those people and shake them to their core and tell them WAKE UP TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

Romans 13:11-14 says: And do this, understanding the present TIME: The Hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The Night is nearly over; the Day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the Daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.

Ignore what the flesh is saying. Let’s all stop letting our desires take over. Let JESUS take over our heart. You think he wanted to be nailed to a Cross and tortured for Days?? Of course he didn’t, but he didn’t think about what he wanted. He knew his life had a purpose. He knew if he trusted in GODS plan and his destiny then he’d be taken care of. He had FAITH, FAITH in GOD and in the destiny that GOD told him was possible.

Were in a generation where everyone is so selfish.  It’s all about me and my needs. It’s   TIME for us to stop worrying about us and worry about LIFE, the true meaning of LIFE and the purpose for us all being here. Again we all have a destiny and a purpose. We all can make an imprint on this world if we just stop worrying about ME.

JESUS made the most of his 33 Years on this earth. It may have not been long, but he made the most of every Second he had. Because he knew the importance of trusting in GOD and also the importance in “TIME” he ignored his flesh and because of that, because of the sacrifice he made. We are able to live in freedom!

By the way I know the video above may look familiar to you all. You may remember I shared it in a blog a few Years back. As you all know I usually do not repost something on my site that I have posted in the past. But this video fit so perfectly with what I shared Today and truthfully I think we need to hear this video again. We need the reminder of how important life is and what we choose to focus our TIME on. And this video represents all that beautifully and the Minute I seen it I knew the LORD was saying to repost it. So please after or before you read this blog watch that video 😜

Why do I feel like I’m not living in freedom at times?? Good question and it’s one I’ll touch on in my next blog. There is so much the LORDS showing me on TIME and things of that nature and I can’t possibly write about it all in one blog. So what I plan on doing is making this into, let’s say a little mini series sort of speak hehehe😜  The next few Weeks I’ll keep writing on this kind of stuff so keep checking back. I do have a few announcements to share but since I wrote so much in Today’s blog and since I’ll be writing again in just a few short Days.  I figure it’s ok to wait and share my announcements in the next blog. So again keep checking back because I promise you will not want to miss these announcements….
