Good Morning! I hope you are staying cool these very hot summer days! I have been enjoying fun days on the beach with my family and staying cool in the ocean waves. It is such a funny feeling because I don't have to pack up to leave for long periods of time anymore. Now, I live here at the beach! Funny how life changes so quickly!

As I was reflecting about how God led us to move from Mississippi to Destin, Florida, I started thinking about God and preparation. God will NEVER lead us to go somewhere where He has NOT gone first. God has already prepared YOU a place in His Kingdom.

"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what's coming to you in this kingdom. It's been ready for you since the world's foundation. And here's why: I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes, I was sick and you stopped to visit, I was in prison and you came to me.'" ~Matthew 25:34-36 The Message

As the scripture above assures us, God has had ready the Kingdom for all of us since creation. He has been waiting on YOU since the foundation of the world! The word READY has been on my heart. God is always ready and we must be ready, too. This really gave me such comfort and hope and I pray it touches you.

My WHOAChallenge this week is: ask yourself do you believe that God has a place for YOU in His Kingdom for eternity? If not, just ask God into your heart and ask Him to increase your faith. Allow God to show you that you will be coming come to heaven when you pass away. Also, look over the reason's why God created you-- so that you would feed the hungry, give a drink to the thirsty, help the homeless, clothe people, help the sick, and visit the prisoners. May we all strive to fulfill God's desires for us as we are His hands and feet here in this dark world! One day we will see God's face and spend eternity with our Lord and Savior. WHOA! How encouraging for all!
