Last night, Sonya woke up at 2:00am and discovered something beautiful. Our lights were on. It has been a week since we’ve had power and what a welcome sight. It was a good thing because it was a humid night, I was getting hot and having a hard time sleeping. The first thing we did was turn on the A/C.
We watched the power crews work all day on the power lines but the lights never came on. The last thing we expected was for them to come on in the middle of the night. I am not sure how Entergy’s process for restoring electricity works, but they surprised us with their 2 am wake-up light. It came on when we least expected it.
There is coming a day when we will be surprised by another great event. When we least expect it, Jesus will return. The Bible says that the rapture of the church will happen in the twinkling of an eye. In a split second. No man knows the day nor the hour but His return is imminent. He is coming again when we least expect it. We must be ready for His return.
