A Question Worth Asking
This train of thought continued as I arrived and began setting my day in order. In the course of all of my thinking, I found myself in a short prayer: "Lord, how long will it be before You come and take us out of all of this?" And shortly afterward, I had a twinge of conviction that led to this question:
"When we pray for the Lord's soon return, is it because we long to see Him, or is it because we just want to escape our circumstances?"
It's a question worth asking. The former is a must, and the latter is very human. However, the former ought to outweigh the latter. Sometimes, I am not sure that it does.
May the Lord change that in me. I want to see Him first and foremost. Everything else will work out.
