We were never promised a rose garden here on
earth instead it seems we were given all the thorns. As the end of days become more evident so to does the turmoil and pain.
Our Lord in the Garden of Gethsemane knew all to well the agony of life's sin and pain, and yet in his strength he endured. Regardless of the
dark times in our lives we are to continually shine the light of the gospel into a world of sin
We may feel as though we are the only ones enduring life's trials but let us not become weary in well doing and forget that we have brethen who are going through much more then we could ever imagine.
The end of days is upon us and His return is even at the door. He is readying himself for a spotless bride, one who does not reflect the world but one who reflects her husband, the "King of Kings and the Lord of Lords".
Is the church anticipating his arrival? Are we infact living the life that he told us to live before he left? Only we as individuals can answer these questions. I hope the church is ready as we live and face the end of days.
