What hour is it on God's watch...?

When comes this hour I put my headphones on with an ipod I thought I bought at a bargain, but then had second thoughts. But if this keeps me awake examining God's word, it's worth it! We turn to 2Thess.2 and we read,

[1For you yourselves know, brothers,[a] that our(A) coming to you(B) was not in vain. 2But though we had already suffered and been shamefully treated(C) at Philippi, as you know,(D) we had boldness in our God(E) to declare to you the gospel of God in the midst of much(F) conflict. 3For(G) our appeal does not spring from(H) error or(I) impurity or(J) any attempt to deceive, 4but just as we have been approved by God(K) to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not(L) to please man, but to please God(M) who tests our hearts. 5(N) For we never came with words of flattery, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed-(O) God is witness. 6(P) Nor did we seek glory from people, whether from you or from others,(Q) though we could have made(R) demands as(S) apostles of Christ. 7But we were(T) gentle[c] among you,(U) like a nursing mother taking care of her own children. 8So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God(V) but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.]

I turn to this place in the bible to remind me why I have to keep on looking into God's word. And I also turn to Luke 15, it says,

[1Now(A) the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2And the Pharisees and the scribes(B) grumbled, saying,(C) "This man receives sinners and(D) eats with them."

3So he told them this parable: 4(E) "What man of you, having a hundred sheep,(F) if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine(G) in the open country, and(H) go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5And when he has found it,(I) he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for(J) I have found my sheep that was lost.' 7Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who(K) repents than over ninety-nine(L) righteous persons who need no repentance...]

And turn to Luke 14 where it says,

[1One Sabbath,(A) when he went to dine at the house of a ruler of the Pharisees, they were(B) watching him carefully. 2And behold, there was a man before him who had dropsy. 3And Jesus responded to(C) the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, (D) "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath, or not?" 4But they remained silent. Then he took him and healed him and sent him away. 5And he said to them, (E) "Which of you, having a son[a] or an ox that has fallen into a well on a Sabbath day, will not immediately pull him out?" 6(F) And they could not reply to these things.]

Here God tells me to what extent God is willing to go to search for his lost lambs. And sometimes it happens to me that I misplace something, and I look frantically for it and even pray that God leads my feet to find it. Then I'm reminded of these passages and how God want to point out how he feels about

continuing his search for his lost. I must confess this is something I only tell my facebook journal. I just want to tell someone what happens to me when I think I done it all and need to retire for daiy each day. God remind me to search and search for his lost. I spend hours and hours reading, studying what to say in my blog that perhaps I may catch one of his precious lost.

I drink coffee and more coffee to stay awake. I read books and books to get ideas on new ways to communicate God's word. But I don't mean to put focus on myself and see 'how wonderful and diligent' I am. Its' just so convinced that this is something God cares about. The Premier gift. I don't know what to say, it opened the door to continue the search.

When I get on my knees every night before I go to sleep, I tell God that I pray earnestly that it is his words and precepts I've spoken. I pray that I've spoken the truth from beginning to end and have peace that I have confided this to Him, God. May you be blessed. Amen.
