Women of Word

Had the opportunity today to attend a Woman of Word class at our new church, Real Life Ministries. First of all, felt great to get out of the house all by myself and to do something just for me. All you moms know what I am talking about! It was a great time of fellowship with other women. We were discussing biblical foundations of world events. How do we know that we are closer to the end times than any other generation? We read Matthew 24:1-8 which talked about the beginnings of end times and how they compare to birth pains. What an interesting comparison. We had the chance to discuss this in groups and my group talked about just how similar these two events are. In both there is a glorious result after a painful process. There is an aspect of faith in the unknown. We experience joy, expectation, worry and anxiety all wrapped up in one. We also know that it is going to get worse before it gets better. I think that is where it is important to focus on the end result. Most importantly, it is short-lived. I always remember what my mom told me when I was pregnant with Nathan and fretting about the pain of labor. She told me that it was just one day. How true is that! No matter how painful, it would be over in a day. And when I look back on it, I can remember it wasn't my favorite thing but I don't re-experience the pain. Just like what it will be like when Jesus comes! We may suffer here on Earth, experience trials and hardships. But it is so short-lived compared to the time we will have in heaven with our creator. And we will no longer feel that pain and suffering. Definitely makes it easier to deal with whatever comes my way here when I know the end result will be so sweet. If it felt that good to meet my new little babies at the end of the labor process, I can only imagine what it will be like to meet my Jesus.
