Taken Away- Time Is Short

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Taken Away

Time is short, little sister, and never returns. What you do not accept at a given moment will never again become available to you, because I think that you would not receive it willingly. (Jesus) (July 24, 1963)

Today’s Readings: And to those standing by he said,
‘Take the gold coin from him
and give it to the servant who has ten.’
But they said to him,
‘Sir, he has ten gold coins.’
He replied, ‘I tell you,
to everyone who has, more will be given,
but from the one who has not,
even what he has will be taken away. (Luke 19)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, this parable terrifies me not just a little bit. How many times do we bury Your Grace and Your Blessings which can come to us in many forms, even sufferings, instead of turning them into the pure gold that saves our souls and the souls of others. Lord, You have given us all sufficient grace for the seasons of life we are in. And You have given to each of us a task that is uniquely ours to accomplish- time is short and it never returns. Lord may we receive willingly what You are offering us in every moment be it joy or pain- let us not be the ones who do not have the faith to persevere, but let us be the ones receive every blessing You have to give us at every moment of our lives!
