Is it a Happy Day? Dear Friends, come and share in a heart-felt moment with me…
Today is Mother’s Day. One day out of the year set aside to celebrate mothers. But what if the emotion—the build up, the possible joy-filled moments, and the countless let downs— have crowded out the One who daily rejoices over us with song? The One who lavishes unfailing love on us?
Hear the word of the Lord: -The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV -Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John 15:13 NKJV
Emotions lead us astray. They carry the weights we are called to carry to the cross. They blind us from the glory of God in our midst. Yes, even the joy (when it’s separated from the Giver of joy)!
Be blessed! Today and everyday! Because you are Beloved of God. Jesus made a way—to see beyond the realities of this world and to find contentment, hope, and abundant life by His Spirit.
-Are you celebrated today? Rejoice, and glorify God for such gifts! -Are you alone? Grieved? May you have eyes to see the lavished love of God surrounding you, and therein rejoice as well!
This is more than Mother’s Day! It’s the day the Lord has made, and we can rejoice and be glad in it!
