“You are being guarded by God’s power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.”  1 Peter 1:5 

Lord Jesus, I can’t wait.  I’m sitting here in faith waiting for you to pull back the veil, to tear apart the heavens again.  I’m waiting for you to tear the heavens apart and to sound the final trumpet when you will come in glory with your angels to bring me home at last.  I’m waiting here, on the edge of my seat, waiting with hope-filled expectation for you to come and create the new heavens and the new earth, my eternal home.  I’m waiting for creation to be restored to paradise instead of this desolate wilderness that it is now.  I can’t wait for you to do this.  Lord Jesus, keep me in the faith until that day.  Keep me from losing hope in this salvation that is about to happen.  Keep me from growing discouraged and hopeless in these last days.  Fill my heart with longing, yearning and excitement as I wait for you to reveal and to give me eternal salvation from the suffering of this earth.  Fill my heart with exceeding joy as I wait for my faith to be turned to sight.  Amen.
