Try Something New Tuesday – Be Watchful

But now, O Lord, thou art our father;
We are the clay, and thou our potter;
And we all are the work of thy hand.    Isaiah 64:8

Happy Tuesday.  I spent yesterday resting and reading, and today I am ready to go.


Last Sunday was the first Sunday of Advent.  It’s a time of waiting  with anticipation.  So, I posed this question to my Sunday School class.  If Jesus walked in the door right now, and you knew it was Jesus, what would you do?  I often see images on television of a soldier coming home and surprising their family.  The family cries with excitement as they hug their long awaited son, daughter, husband, wife, mother or father.  Would you run up to Jesus and hug him?  Would you fall on your knees in adoration?  Would you hide?Would you feel dread and regret?  What would you do?  Mark 13:33 tells us to “take heed, watch and pray; for we know not when the time is.”  Does this mean we should dread every day because the end might be near?  No.  It means be ready, get right with God and live your life as a joyful Christian.  I can’t wait to wrap my arms around Jesus with excitement!

Share what you would do and have a great Tuesday!  God bless you.

I promised my friend Hayley of Red Letters I would share this video of her singing and playing the song recorded by Hillsong.  It is beyond beautiful. I’m blessed to have become friends with her over the past year.   Enjoy.


  1. Oh I miss our Advent Sundays with the candles and weekly reminders of our waiting season. The churches we have been members of in the past celebrated the season with the candles. We don’t have anything for this year – and we are with our grandsons….oh Lord, give us a Holy Boldness to share about You to our unchurched grandsons. Thankfully, the older one, age 4, does like attending church with us from time to time….May You touch his heart, mind and soul this Christmas season. May his 2 year old brother see and follow him!

    1. My three year old grandson goes with us sometimes. At first I think he was afraid. Now he thinks its fun. I make a game out of the experience. It’s serious business, but if it’s not fun to them, they won’t want to go back. Stay blessed.
