A few days ago some friends and I were discussing this song that we all know: This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made. I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it. We got around to saying how "old fashioned" that song was. Well, let me tell you I have not been able to get that song out of my mind!
I looked up the verse in the Bible and it's in Psalms 118 and King David is telling us to Rejoice and be glad! The Lord has blessed us with another day!
You might be saying, how can I rejoice when my dad is still in such critical condition lying in ICU with a ventilator helping him breathe? I do find it hard. And, I'm really not running around rejoicing too much either! And, I do understand the severity of everything my dad is enduring. But, I do feel the Lord telling me to find something to be thankful for. Find something to rejoice in. Even though we're going through difficult times right now there are still things to rejoice in.
So, let's start, okay?? I will rejoice and be glad that my dad is not more seriously injured. I will rejoice that he's in a hospital that is taking such great care of him. I will rejoice that the nurses are so nice. I will rejoice that my dad squeezed my hand today when I told him I loved him. I will rejoice...I will rejoice with the knowledge that my God is able to do all things and that I serve an awesome and mighty God.
Enjoy the song!
