Brenda’s Blog – June 14, 2022
Driving to church I prayed as usual for a family member who is in the “far country.” I asked, “Could this be the day?” I had a specific outcome in mind, but then I paused and thought how many times and how many people could ask that same question.
Could this be the day: Marriages are healed; Families are restored; Health returns; Hearts are reformed; Hope is reignited; Courage is displayed; Truth is proclaimed.
Then I thought of even more crucial ones. Could this be the day Jesus returns; America repents and turns back to God; or the Gospel is preached in power with men and women responding and lives are changed.
What would you answer if you asked “could this be the day?” There certainly are some nitty gritty ones like solving work problems, finding gas or baby formula, affording housing, and receiving a long awaited job offer.
Today is the gift of God. We are offered the opportunity to express our giftedness, our hopefulness, and our receptivity to life’s broad experiences. Each one may not be stellar, but each one is sacred. And as we awaken we can sincerely ask “Could this be the day?” confident that God knows – YAY!
