Anyone else here feel as though they'd be as pleased with an earlier than planned 'departure', rapture or not? The world's last best hope is on its way out economically, culturally, etc. Each day brings another mind-war with sin, as we pray to accomplish good thru Him. It's as though the only things left that bring ANY comfort are those good things prompted by Him, done by His power. Everything else feels empty. "Vanity" I think Proverbs calls it, in reference to the majority of our earthly works apart from the will of God. I feel like I used to enjoy it (vanity) a lot more-- a good meal, a hobby, conversations, movies, nature. Occupy, never tire of doing good, suck it up and drive on.
