Glorious Day

A while ago that false prophet told everyone that the rapture would happen on May 21. I felt so bad for the people that got ready for it, and sold all their belongings and all and thought it would happen that day. But it did make me think about that glorious day when we will see our Lord. What a day.

I love my life, and my husband. Every day I get to bask in the love my husband showers on me, but when I get to be in God's presence it will be so much better. I get to just bask in God's presence. I cannot wait for that. Ever had one of those awesome worship services where you just feel God and know He is there? It will like a continuous one, but way better. I cannot wait for that day.

But looking at all those people it did make me reevaluate my life and think about how am I getting ready for Him? Those people did everything to get ready. They got rid of material items, and were ready for when they though Christ would take them away. Now, I read about some of them like going to Disney World and maxing out their credit cards to get ready, and I'm not espousing that. But I am saying, that we should be ready for Him to take us. We never know when He will require us to come to Him and leave this world, and we should live every minute like its our last one.

Just thinking about being in the presence of my Savior really makes me excited, but then I think about how every day I live in His presence. He is here with me. He is with me every day and wants me to worship Him constantly. I don't have to wait for the rapture, or to die to feel Him and to live in His presence. I can have that every time I play some worship music and just stop what I'm doing worship. I can do it every time I'm working and just stop to pray and talk to God. I can do it when I do my quiet time right before bed and I read all about His greatness. I do not have to wait to worship and enjoy Him until I die or rapture, I can do it right here, right now. I want to live my life enjoying Him.

I have to say that I don't do a very good job of living my life in enjoyment and service to Him. Stuff just happens. It seems like at the end of the day I get to it and life just took over. Homework eats me alive, or housework or something and I realize that I did not spend enough of my time just focusing on my God. I am not saying you should become someone who neglects everything to just sit around worshiping God, because all the things you do can be part of your service to Him. I am saying that sometimes I need to stop and just worship Him. I need to stop housework and facebook and homework and everything else that distracts me and just focus on my Savior who loves me so much and yearns for time with me.

I want to spend more time thinking about my Savior and getting ready for that glorious day. But for now, I just want to serve and worship Him with everything that I am.

I wanted to post a song about this, and one that I love to just stop and worship God with. Its really a great song that just begs to have you stop everything you are doing and just worship our amazing God. Do you have a specific song that makes you just stop and worship? Do you do anything special to remind yourself of that day and our God? I am always looking for new ways to serve God and focus on Him, and if you have one I would really like to hear it!

Today, try to spend a few minutes just worshiping and thinking about that glorious day, and our amazing God.
