So while we are still in this period of waiting, what shall we focus on?
Why not work on our intimacy with Jesus, letting him pour out His love into our hearts?
In Luke 10:38-42 NIV we read:
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Mike Bickle has some great teachings on cultivating passion for Jesus and a short series on you tube called The Greatest Life. This is a 15 minute message about Mary at Bethany:
So let’s not waste this time God has given us to spend more time with Him! Let’s share these truths with others to multiply what we are learning into others! Let’s be different and spread hope all around! Let’s be the light!
Romans 15:13 is my verse for this year:
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
