The Night is Coming

The Watered Soul: The Night is Coming

The Night is Coming

 

John 9-4

We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work. John 9:4 (NLT)

We all know that we will not be here (not on this side of heaven anyway) forever despite the lyrics in Fame. But who knows the number of our days? Whatever the number, we only have a certain window of time to complete the work He has given us.

Are you using the time wisely? Night is coming you know.

Maybe I should spend less time blogging and more time writing my MS.

Yes, our time on earth is finite, and I pray and hope I use my time wisely, but there are days when I know I could have chosen better. Thankfully, each morning I am reminded of His mercy and grace to begin again - Thank you, Lord! Wanda, your post is a wonderful reminder of the coming night. Gorgeous photograph, too!

I sure feel the immediacy of the moment. I just believe the Lord's return is at hand. May he find us loving, serving, worshiping and winning souls upon His return.
Thank you for this word!
Happy WFW!

Wanda, Wanda, Wanda ..... Oh yes. Earlier today, I listened to NPR as a theologian stated that one of the reasons so many false doctrines and extremes within Christianity are drawing people away from the Body of Christ is that the average mainstream church no longer teaches the word, especially the second coming of Christ. May we all walk in light and take every opportunity to live in light and be aware of the time and the season. Night is coming.

Bless you Wanda... this is breathtaking! Whata mean "I'm gonna live forever..." just not here.

How very true that we must be about Our Father's business NOW and quickly! The night is not only coming soon, it is upon us and we DO need to carry out the tasks that Jesus gave us. Beautiful reminder and Word!

Thank you Wanda for your understanding words yesterday. I'm a day late! I'm so glad Bella hanging by your side reminds you of God's faithfulness...so very true.
Give her a hug today and tell her thanks!

Such beauty and peace here,
Peggy

The only time left is the time remainder before our Lord's return. May we spend our time wisely to fulfill the will of God!

Hi there dear Wanda,

What a TIMELY word! I've been engrossed, once again, in the Dream Giver as I teach it at Bible Study at church and that has been the running theme I've been encouraging them as the Holy Spirit encourages me; that we must get busy working and completing what GOD has purposed us to do.

Your message is a blessed reminder and confirmation to my spirit. Love the photo you selected.

I pray that you are doing well Wanda. You are a blessing to ALL of us!

Much love,
Lisa

When it does, I hope there is an eclipse to stall it a bit~ Point taken and you are sooo right! We need to make the best with our time~

Convicting and inspiring, Wanda.

Yes, I am doing my best to be about the Lord's work. Night is coming...

...and He is coming, the Light of the World.

GOD BLESS!

Thanks beautiful ones for sharing your lovely thoughts. May we each find ourselves busy doing the work in which we have been called.

Very good message, Wanda. This is definitely something I've been thinking about a lot these days. Thank you for the reminder.

Hi Wanda,

Amen! I'd like to think I'm using my time wisely. Writing for the Lord and living for him. In light of the false prediction of judgment day this past weekend and all of the natural disasters lately, our time on this earth as we know it is short. Judgment day may not have occurred Saturday, but it is truly coming soon! I wrote about this in my latest blog posts. Enjoy!

Blessings,
Judy
