This week has been amazing! Each day, I’m asking the Lord to give me my daily bread and he has done so literally. A friend brought me some bread this week. I was expecting one loaf, instead it was an overdose of artesian breads from a bakery!
Currently, I’m having serious financial problems including growing credit card debt. However, I’m trusting Jesus to help me each day. God answered my prayer.
I have long been suspicious of the “rapture” or escape of God’s people, which is a belief where true believers will leave this world before anything really bad happens. It was in the early 1990’s when I first learned of such a belief. In fact, it was a religious person who told me about it and let me read a book on it. I remember the book was written in the 1980’s and laced with anxiety. One chapter ended in a terrifying climax. It went something like, 1984 could very well be the last year we’re on this planet! Sorry, I can’t quote it or remember the title or author but after reading that nearly a decade later it was hard for me to take “the Rapture doctrine” seriously.
