The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. – John 10:10 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. – Romans 15:13
No day is promised not a minute or an hour. Each interval of time is a blessing granted to us by God. To have the ability to wake up and see a new day is a celebration. We often take the act of waking as a guaranteed daily encounter opposed to another gift from God. There are times we arouse tired, and groggy only wishing for a valid reason to stay home, while every blue moon, there are days we great the morning with zest and feeling on top of the world! Now, would it be wrong for me to say you should awake each morning full of joy, happy and singing? Nonetheless, I will tell you it’s not too far fetch to strive in making that happen in spite of how you feel mentally, physically or spiritually.
Recently, I stumbled across an old secular classic, I Just Want to Celebrate, by Rare Earth, which depicts the very essence of what I’m trying to say: “I just want to celebrate another day of living\', I just want to celebrate another day of life. Had my hand on the dollar bill and the dollar bill blew away but the sun is shining down on me and it\'s here to stay that’s why I\'m telling you I just want to celebrate another day of living’.” As simplistic as these lyrics are, one has to continue to believe that in each day there is hope and opportunity despite the forecast which predicts another gloomy day of facing hard times, uncertainness of jobs, health issues, or even relationships. When it is all said and done, we have to learn to encourage one another don’t be afraid to confide in each other and celebrate living.
Our existence is not a given yet God asked his children to trust and confide in Him. He also finds it pleasing when we praise, pray, worship and discover the true meaning of peace through in storms. Yes your body, mind and spirit is in pain, your pockets are bare, the gas tank is empty along with the bank account too. However, the word of the day is celebrate! Celebrate! Learn to celebrate each day of living! “The devil will spit in your face and will not give you a napkin to wipe it off” because he finds joy seeing you sad, mad and dejected. Lean upon God’s unchanging word and celebrate!
By standing on God’s promises, “move away from self-centered prayers and began to intercede (stand in the GAP) for others. If God is present in the atmosphere then he is fully aware of your needs, wants and desires.” (Thank you good Brother Rev. Carl Hunter), continue to lean upon fellow Christians to praise God’s name. When two are more gather in Jesus name, he is with you! Seek enjoy, A.S.K., and God will give you another day of celebrated life!
