I wake up every morning and stay in bed for a bit and talk with the Lord. Did you notice I said WITH and not TO? He showed me that as I began to write these words down. Because our relationship has become such a place of intimacy and the absolute top priority of my life, it has become much more of a conversation than I ever thought was possible. I am not saying there is anything "special" about me...I am saying there is a whole lot "special" about Him! His promises are true...what He says in His Word is ABSOLUTE! If you draw near to HIM...HE will draw near to you.

Calvary was about so much more than the forgiveness of sin and making heaven our home! All of those things are wonderful and I am looking forward to all of it! But Calvary was also the way back to the relationship and fellowship that Adam had before the fall! We can have that relationship with Him...now! All the Eternity promises are real and sure...but these words He spoke to me as I sat and talked with friends the other evening, have "exploded" in my spirit..."In the meantime..."

There is so much He wants to both BE and DO in our lives RIGHT NOW! And then, of course, do through us to touch the lives of others. I looked up the definition of the word "glory"...long list. I like the one that defines it as the "the presence of God." We can have that "presence" in a greater measure than most of us realize...but it will not just "fall" on you. And yes, there are occasions when that happens...but I am talking about an "abiding" presence. I believe with all of my heart that there is a place of "abiding in His presence" that can be obtained in this life...our "...in the meantime..."

While I was preparing to write this, something else was going through my mind about "peace." I always ask the Lord to give me the words...so I can explain things effectively. This is how I can define this "peace" He has given me. It is deep and lasting and unaffected by my circumstances. It is not the "absence of stress," but the ability not to be reactive to it or controlled by it. It is an overwhelming, inexplanable, unshakable, "sense of well-being," regardless of what is going on around me. The understanding that it is "well with my soul!" Peace! So...in my "meantime" I am going to continue to seek Him and love Him...with all my heart, and all my soul, and all my strength...and I WILL ALWAYS FIND HIM! He promised I would! And everyday, I will spend all of the time I possibly can...talking WITH HIM! Building our relationship...giving Him all of me that I can possibly give...and receiving all OF Him I can possibly receive! That is my life and will continue to be...in the meantime!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
