What Are You Looking Forward To
December 15, 2020
John 14:1 (TPT)
14 “Don’t worry or surrender to your fear. For you’ve believed in God, now trust and believe in me also."
When this time of the year rolls around I become a very busy individual. There always seems to be some form of hectic agenda that presents itself on a dally basis. But, I look forward to this every year. I’m glad to see it come, and glad to see when it’s over.
So let me ask you a couple of questions. What are you looking forward to? And what does "looking forward" to mean to you? I saw this in an article, so I will quote it: “The expression "look forward to" is a common expression in English. It means "to expect (something) with pleasure." It is used to say that you are happy that something is going to happen.
Testimony: Last Saturday night we went out to eat after our evening meeting. We had never gone to this place before and I really did not know what to expect. I went to pay for my bill but the computer crashed so it wouldn’t charge my card. The manager told me to go to the other side of the room, and he would give me my order number so I could pick up my food. I had purchased three meals. I asked him when do I pay for the meals I had ordered. He said it was on the house. I have to admit that I wasn’t looking for that to happen!
After dinner a little girl just knew that I was Santa Claus, and came over to my table to meet me. She must have been around three or four years old. Her and her sister asked if they could have a picture with me. Their innocence got to my heart. I thought that I want that kind of "looking forward" to meeting Jesus when He comes back to get me and takes me home at last.
Thank You, Father for keeping Your promises that You make to us and are written in Your word. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
