CALLING YOU!

As a child, do you recall playing with your neighbours when your mother would call you to come home? You were having so much fun that you really didn’t want to leave right then so you stayed for a while longer, but in a few minutes you heard her voice again and you thought this time you had better leave.  When  you got home she had a surprise waiting for you,your favourite cousin was waiting for you, had you stayed another few minutes you would  have missed out, as they were ready to leave!  You were so glad you had heeded the call before it was too late!

I remember I went to work in Sussex as my first job and also my first time being away from home. I had a little sister 12 years younger than myself, who hadn’t  started to school, but had gone across the field to play with her little friend.  She didn’t  know I was coming home that day, but when I went out and  hollered “Myrna” She recognized my voice and came running up the hill as fast as she could!  She was as excited, as was I, as was only  home for a few hours as I had to go back to work the next day!  Sometimes it really pays to pay attention when you hear your name being called!

There has been times when I was so engaged in a book that when my hubby called my name I didn’t even hear him!  It wasn’t that I did it intentionally either! I was just so taken up with the story!  It is coming close to a day when my name will be called again and I don;t want to be too busy to hear it!  I hope all my family and friends will also hear their name when it is called and will be ready to answer, Yes Lord, Here I am! Then we will hear  “Thou good  and faithful servant. enter into the rest that I have prepared for you!” 

But in order for us to hear that we have to prepare ourselves to meet Him!  If you don’t know how to get prepared  I will tell you how, and hope you will believe me!  In Acts the 2nd chapter , verse 38 & 39 you can read it for yourself! On the Day of Pentecost , Peter stood up and told the unbelievers what they must do to be saved, and it is just the same today! God has never changed his mind!  You must repent of your sins, (be sorry for your sins, enough to completely turn your life around) and be baptised in the Name of Jesus for the remission of your sins, and Jesus will fill you with the gift of the Holy Ghost!  Then you must walk holy in his sight, for He is Holy! If you will just taste and see how good God is I’m sure you will want Him in your life and will wonder how you ever got along without Him in your life!

Calling you, Calling you, don’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?  He will take you by the hand, lead you to that promise land!  Don’t you hear the Blessed Saviour calling you?

Calling today,calling today,Jesus is calling, tenderly calling today.Come home,come home,ye who are weary come home.earnestly ,tenderly,Jesus is calling ,calling oh sinner come home.

I’m trying to write another book as I do this story, from now on my stories are apt to be quite short. Hence the title-“And That’s All Folks!” I started writing in August of 2009, when  the Lord told me to write!  I answered by saying, “Lord, I’ll do this as long as you tell me what to write.”  So when I asked for another title today, this is all I got! I am not saying that I won’t be writing any more stories, but I am terribly slow and getting slower!  I still plan to do at least one story each week–Lord willing!

This morning started off when our cat (Lucky), upset my carnations, that my husband got me for Valentine’s Day, on the floor!  She knows she can bother me, as I can’t get around to chase her!  I can’t even swat her hard enough. Because of this she thinks I am playing with her.  One day she was tormenting me.  So I took a ruler I had in my hand and started hitting her.  So, she grabbed a cushion off the chair and rolled on to her back and held the cushion in front of her, as if to say, “Keep on playing with me, I don’t care!” Roy was watching and got a real laugh out of her!                   

We have been watching Bro. Irvine Baxter’s DVDs (The End Time series) on Wednesday evenings at church, which are about the end times.  They tell us what to expect concerning the time we are living in today.  Jesus said, “No man knows the day or the hour when the Son of man cometh”, but we do know the signs of the times that we are living in.  He also said, “When ye see these things begin to come to pass then look up for your redemption draweth nigh!”  So, as we know, we are in the last days! Jesus is coming sooner than we might think for His people  and it would pay us to get prepared for this great  event!  Perhaps you are wondering what must I do to be in that number, who go to be with the Lord?  On the day of Pentecost they asked Peter, “What must we do to be saved?”  He answered, “Ye must repent and be baptized, in the name of the Lord Jesus, for the remission of sin, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost!”  He went on to say, “For the promise is to you and your children and to all that are afar off, as many as the Lord our God, shall call.”  That means you and I today!  How do I know?  I know, because I have the Holy Ghost!  And you may have it too! Christ died on the cross, to grant us liberty! Over every sin, there is perfect victory! I have it and I know it!  And you may have it too! And that’s it folks!

Try Jesus!  He never fails! O’er evil, His love prevails. Through sunshine or stormy gales!  Try Jesus!  He  never fails! Never failed me yet!  Never failed me yet!

Jesus love has never failed me yet!  Where so ever I go, this one thing I know.  Jesus’ love has never failed me yet!
