No Time Limits

One Week, one day down.

One week, six days to go before she can put weight on her foot.

14 days until her next surgery.

Funny how some people count the passage of time.

We countdown to Holidays, birthdays, parties -  milestone events.  We count how many days, weeks, months, years since the birth of our children.


We are prisoners of time.  Constrained by it's limitations.  Bound by it's laws.

For now.

One day, we will be free to walk, run, fly, soar without constraints!  When Jesus comes to take us to be with him forever, there will be no laws of gravity and time and physics!

Titus 2: 11-13
  "For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.  It teaches us to say "NO" to ungodliness, and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope - the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ!  Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good."

Wow!  God has brought us salvation through Jesus Christ!  We should live our lives free of sin because we are waiting for this - Jesus is coming again!!

Ravi Zacharias said, “Hope is that indispensable element that makes the present so important. Significantly, the absence of future hope has an amazing capacity to reach into the present and eat away at the structure of life, as termites would a giant foundation.”

If you have chosen Jesus as your Savior - not just acknowledged he is God, but chosen to life your life for him - you have this hope too!!

Romans 10:9-13
   That if you confess with your mouth and say, "Jesus Is Lord!" and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.  As scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame..." for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved!"

I love this!!!   

I confess - 

Jesus Is Lord!!!

I believe Jesus died on a cross and was raised from the dead!!

I believe He is coming back for those whom have confessed Him as their Savior!

I want to live my life purposefully.  That others see Jesus in me.

I want to write purposefully so that readers find hope in the written word!

I celebrate my Savior today!   I no matter who difficult this walk for my daughter has been, he will redeem her pain!  No matter the tears I've cried He has seen each one and has cried with me.  I know that my God rejoices in our triumphs and dances over me!

This Time I am prisoner of will one day be broken and I will live forever with my Savior! I will dance in His presence!  I will sing with the angels!  I will run with my daughter!  We will laugh as a family in the presence of our King.  Forever! 

No Time Limits.
