 I’ve held on for as long as I could. I was halfway hoping this past weekend would make it a non-issue since the buzz about being raptured was at a fever pitch again. I even waited an extra day just to make sure it wasn’t an issue of time zones, but I woke up this morning and had to admit that it wasn’t Sunday anywhere anymore, so we’d likely be here for a bit longer.

I went and told my neighbor he couldn’t have my lawn mower after all and started paying off some past-due bills I was hoping I wouldn’t have to pay because, you know. It’s not like I would have left a forwarding address, and Heaven’s a big place, so I don’t know how likely it was that they’d find me.

Could you imagine, though? You’re sitting down for a conversation with Paul, or Timothy, Jeremiah, or Daniel, and suddenly, a phone rings. When you answer, you hear, “I’m calling about your past due bill for the George Foreman grill you committed to purchasing for six easy payments of $19.99, plus shipping and handling.”

I know what you’re thinking: phones in heaven? If a modern-day prophetess – and I use the term as loosely as humanly possible - is insisting that we’ll have pet dinosaurs in the great beyond, why not phones? Is it really that much of a stretch from pet dinosaurs to mobile phones in heaven? Just a thought, but I digress.

I’ve said all that to say this: I need your help!

I’ve been alternating between the Book of Job and the Epistle of James for my morning reading, and there is much to be plumbed from both books. With the Epistle of James, there would be a continuity of sorts from the Epistle of Jude since they were siblings and half-brothers of Jesus. With the book of Job, there would be a fountain of wisdom on suffering well and would serve to dispel many myths getting passed around as gospel truth today.

I’m at a crossroads, and I can’t decide. As such, this is my ask. Leave a comment with one word, either James or Job. I’ll tally them, and then we will pursue the book that gets the most votes. It would be too complicated to alternate between the two in real-time, but once the first is done, we will jump into the second. Until one of the two books is the clear winner, I will post standalone musings, whatever they might be. Either way, it promises to be an eye-opening journey, just from the handful of notes I’ve jotted down the past few mornings.  

With love in Christ,

Michael Boldea, Jr.
