Hello God. It's me, Mara

Coming events


You know, Lord, recently a headline read: “Coming Events!” Listed were: Hat Style Show, Mother-Daughter Tea, Bake Sale, Music with Mick and Moiré, Car Wash and Swap Meet, Dog Show, Rodeo, Golf with Glenn, Swim Meet, Softball Starts Sat.!

That certainly gives the impression that there will be a well-rounded selection of events to soon take place in our city. There was a wide enough choice of just about anything and everything to please almost everyone, wouldn’t you think?

One might think of You, Lord, when the subject of “Coming Events” is brought up. It seemed an easy enough task to choose a verse to tell of a coming event pertaining to You, but in a complete and unabridged concordance there were 17 columns allotted to the words come, came, comest, and one whole column allotted to the word coming.

Exciting things will soon be “coming” to pass at the same time as the Spirit world and the physical world, as we now know it, are preparing for Your second coming. There are several places in Your word that tells of this coming event.

Some awful things await those who choose not to serve You, Lord — one only needs to read Your word to recognize that that is so! But, on the other hand, Lord, Rev. 21:7 states, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God and he shall be My son.”

A new heaven and a new earth are promised. John writes in verse 2 of chapter 21, “And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven. It was a glorious sight, beautiful as a bride adorned for her husband.”

A friend said that she’d recently seen a “bumper sticker” on an old pickup that read, “He Cometh,” Yea! for “Coming Events.”

Love, Mara
