I told someone, that I did not have much to write about lately, because not many want to hear that times is short.
I know that it has been said over and over again that the end is coming. But, things were never in place like they are now.
God has given me and some friends vision of our future and all have felt the pain of that. I had an occasion to talk to God about my feelings and His response was short.
I had been working on our farm. God has called us back to the farm to prepare for the things to come. I decided to take a break and went down to the pond to pray. My new dog went with me. He is an Australian Shepard. He will be used for herding. He came into my life quite suddenly. One year old and full of life. He never rests.
While sitting at the pond, I told God, "I do not want this." I then began to grieve what my vision had shown me. My dog came to me and showed me compassion. I was shocked. He is usually totally out of control.
When he came to me, I heard God say..."I gave you your dog as a gift."
"Well, then, he is the perfect dog." I said to God.
Then God surprised me. He told me..."Grieve now...You will not have time later."
Wow, what a shock. I wept a bit more, then headed back to the house.
I found a friend taking a break. He told me that while he was tilling the garden, he had begun to weep over what is to come. He then said that God had told him to "grieve now, because he would not have time later"
I have wondered if we were having the same talk with God at the same time.
So, we both grieved and then we went to work. My grief is over and now I will walk in joy. The joy of knowing that everything is planned by God and His plans are perfect.
I will try to write more often and try to be uplifting.
