This Is the Day…

By Pastor Mike 

3-29-20

 

 

    Rhonda and I got engaged in the month of March 1987.  It’s been 33 years for this blessed couple!  During our time of betrothal, we went to her home church in Woodland Maine in Washington County.  Rhonda’s home church was the Woodland Full Gospel Pentecostal Church.  Being a relatively new Christian, I didn’t know much about church singing.  The only singing that I did up to that point was in the bathtub and the only song I knew was Ernie’s song from Sesame Street “rubber ducky.”

    Every time, we gathered to worship in Woodland, we would always begin by singing…

This is the Day, this is the day

That the Lord has made

That the Lord has made…

 

I know that you’ve heard it before.  I sang it so much that it never quite impacted me until now.

    As I sit here meditating on this wonderful Sunday morning on the eve of Palm Sunday, I am reminded that this is the day that our wonderful God has created.  We are called to live for today and not fret over what tomorrow may bring.  We can rest assured that our God holds all of our tomorrows in the center of His hand.

 

Shalom my friends…
