This is it!! This is the day we have all waited for! It has finally come--the contractions have begun!
This is day to rejoice, to be glad!! We have waited, not so patiently at times, but now the day begins!
How will it end? That will be up to you.
Go excitedly into this day--as the sun eagerly goes forth every day to proclaim the glory of God!!
This day will bring something like never before!! This day will change our life forever, we will never be the same again!! For just as the sun brings life, light and warmth into this world--so does the Son, the Father, the Holy Spirit breathes new life into all who breathe in their air!! Just as our love touches all we love, so does the love of God touch us by the very sun in the day, the moon at night, the air we breathe---touches us with the Presence of God.
So, this day, the Master returns, the Bridegroom comes and enters into our being. At the beginning of this day, every day---what we have waited for, what we have longed for! This is it!! This is the day!!
Keep your eyes open, your mind alert!! Be on guard, for you do not know the moment that God reveals Himself to you--but He will! This Day, you will come to know in your heart that He is Lord, and loves you more than you can realize. Proof? Just look at all creation around you and Hear His unspoken Word. See the Message written all over the works of God!
Psalm 19 (New Living Translation Bible)
"1The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.
2Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
3They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.
4Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.
God has made a home in the heavens for the sun.
5It bursts forth like a radiant Bridegroom after his wedding.
It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race.
6The sun rises at one end of the heavens
and follows its course to the other end.
Nothing can hide from its heat.
7The instructions of the Lord are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight for living.
9Reverence for the Lord is pure,
The laws of the Lord are true;
each one is fair.
10They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
11They are a warning to your servant,
a great reward for those who obey them.
12How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
13Keep your servant from deliberate sins!
Don’t let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
and innocent of great sin.
14May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer."
Yes, Oh God we pray, please do this this day--create again within me a clean heart--that You may dwell within me "This Day:" and every day, when like the sun--I arise and go forth to love and serve You--Oh, my God!!
