In the Blink of an Eye

I've wandered around the house, picking up chew toys that were being played with only hours ago. As I decide what to put away, and wonder how to comfort my family, a thought occurred to me: that could just as easily have been one of my children.

Instead of washing dog bowls for the last time, I could be planning a funeral for one of my boys. I could be so broken that I couldn't speak, or breathe, or funstion at all.

Things could be so much worse.

But then another thought came to me: when Jesus comes back for His children, it will be just like that. We'll be washing our breakfast dishes one minute, and scouring the area for our loved ones later when they've been called home and some are left behind.

Guys, we don't know when Jesus is coming back. But we know that when he does it will be in the blink of an eye, just like it happened losing Titus. And those still here hours later will be wondering what happens next.

Don't be one of them. Don't waste another minute, because we just don't know how many we have left. If you don't know who Jesus is yet, if you haven't accepted Christ, then do it now. Go here and find out what steps to take. It's the only way to know for sure where you'll be when God blinks...


  1. Beth, I just finished posting a writing with a similar theme. No one knows the day, the hour or the time of Christ's return. I feel the urgency. Oh that we may be His ambassadors and share His Good News with those who don't know Him.

    On a rescue mission,

  2. This is SO true. I think about it every day. And I am so sorry about your puppy...we lost a kitten last winter when it crawled up under the hood of my husbands car and he didn't know it was there. My children were devastated, so I know how hard it is to comfort them. I'm praying for God's comfort for your family!

  3. Thanks for stopping by Momma In Flip Flops2 and entering to win some great prizes. I look forward to reading your comments again. CUte dog in the picture below. =)

  4. Beth, I'm so sorry. Losing a pet is so incredibly hard on the family, but you're right-- at least it is a pet and not a human.

    Down here at Northpoint there was a memorial service this afternoon for one of the staff members there. She had been on an anniversary cruise with her husband in Alaska and died suddenly of a brain aneurysm.

    We really never do know when it will be our last moment.

    virtual hugs for your family (heehee-- I can do many virtual hugs!)



So, what do you have to say?
