The Long Run:

     This world is not your home.

     For most of us, a daily reminder is needed.  

     When circumstances are smooth and delightful, affirmatively taking hold of the privilege of being a Sojourner and a Pilgrim is of the utmost importance.  It is one thing to live in the Sabbath rest and have Peace, but it is another to only have Peace when things appear to be unruffled.

     When by sight the worst is happening and events leave devastation in their wake,  how precious is the knowledge that we are only passing through.

     Those who are consistently in the Word and consistent in prayer often declare aloud to the Lord the confidence of having a home in heaven.  This frees the Soldier of The Cross to attend to others when:

     There is not enough time;
     They don't deserve it;
     I'm too tired;
     They won't even notice:
     I'm too busy;
     I'm not sure how to go about it.

     We are to love the Brethren, and  the Indwelling Holy Spirit will empower and instruct one step at a time.

     You have one job- Trust and Obey.

     Tell Him today. Aloud.
     Don't look down and move on!
