Here Today….Gone Tomorrow?!?!!

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

I got a call from husband two Saturday’s ago while I was out looking for curtains for our home. The tone in my husband’s voice spoke “URGENCY”. He was calling to tell me to meet him at the ER because my twins woke up from a late nap with their eyes unable to open because of mucus (YES BOTH OF THEM). I RUSHED to meet him because my kids were sick and it’s OUR responsibility to care of them. Once we sat in the ER for what seemed like FOREVER with two small SICK children, we were seen and the Dr. treated their eyes ON THE SPOT so they could began to HEAL. Ok….TRUST that I’m going somewhere with this in Jesus name OF COURSE!!!

 We got their prescriptions filled and after 2 days BOTH their eyes looked as if they were NEVER SICK. The Dr. CLEARLY advised us to place the medication in EACH EYE 4 times daily for FIVE DAYS. However, with the work week beginning and their eyes LOOKING NORMAL we slacked off on putting the drops in their eyes. (Yall have been sick and began taking meds and started feeling good so you stop taking them even though your suppose to take them for a number of days). They returned to school the following Wednesday after being out a few days to BE ON THE SAFE SIDE and the teacher even said “IT DOESN’T EVEN LOOK LIKE ANYTHING WAS WRONG WITH THEM”. The FOLLOWING week (About 10 days after the ER visit) after not completing the FIVE DAYS as prescribed they BOTH woke up with their eyes looking BACK SICK AGAIN because though it APPEARED ON THE OUTSIDE TO BE GONE the sickness was STILL LINGERING in their systems.

 So, we had to START ALL OVER AGAIN WITH TREATMENTS DUE TO US NOT FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS BECAUSE WE THOUGHT THE SICKNESS WAS “HERE TODAY GONE TOMORROW”. Today as adults we tend to find ourselves in situations when we may be “SICK” and we LEAN on GOD for a healing for a FEW DAYS and when the coast LOOKS clear we quickly FALL BACK thinking the SICKNESS IS HEALED. 

Let me give you an example…Just because I say “SICK” doesn’t mean actually “SICK”; your sickness that you carry could be loss of Peace, Joy, Love, Health, family closeness, or friendships. See as we felt, when you are going thru any of these above named you find it URGENT to turn to God and pray/read/go to church or just get close to God; however, when the situation LOOKS good you go right back to END UP BACK AT SQUARE ONE for NOT FOLLOWING THE DR’S INSTRUCTIONS (THE BIBLE). Situations may APPEAR to be “HERE TODAY GONE TOMORROW” however if you’re not following the DR. or His orders THE SITUATION will SURELY LINGER and rear its ugly head again. Today, I encourage you to keep living/walking with Jesus in your everyday life and when your going thru a sickness (Whatever yours may be) and choose to URGENTLY turn to God for a HEALING that you STAY THE COURSE and COMPLETE THE TREATMENT!!!

I’m a LIVING WITNESS that the INITIAL LOOK being HEALED can SURELY become PERMANENT if you follow the DR’S ORDERS (THE WORD OF GOD). This walk is NOT EASY and that’s why it’s a WALK (NOT A RUN OR SPRINT) however, it’s so SUPER worth EVERY STEP….

2 Thes 4:7, 8 “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness …”

Be Bold

Be Following the “DR’S ORDERS”(WORD OF GOD)

Be KEEPING URGENCY in your DAILY WALK

Be ENCOURAGED………………….

Love Always Dad

  11. Cassandra Joyner says:

    I love your post! It reminds me of the scripture (Psalm 119) that my aunt used to refer to about staying course. I will include the scripture beneath but first I want to thank you for sharing.

    Psalm 119: 1-8
    Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD. Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart— they do no wrong but follow his ways. You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees! Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands. I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws. I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.

    • Mrs B. Carter says:
