I was just thinking, do I really expect my Lord to return at any time? I should be saying, "Yes, my Lord must be coming this year, and if not, definitely next year." Instead, I was already thinking the chance was past.
I realized the other day I would be prone to say, "Well, I guess he's not coming this year..." Why oh why? This year is not over yet. God's hope toward me is long suffering, yet my hope toward the soon return of Jesus for His bride wavers?! It shouldn't.
I am adjusting my view to expect my Lord's soon return. EVEN THIS YEAR. Even five short days before Christmas. And may He find me faithful when He comes.
Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus.
