Thought For The Day 03/29/11

Standard

This morning I checked out my Facebook page and the very first post there was one from someone I don’t really know well….he’s kind of a friend of a friend….but today he had posted a video from Casting Crowns, “Glorious Day”! I had never heard it before, but I quickly grabbed the box of  tissues as I was listening. The words so touched me, and though I seem to be able to find God in nearly everything I do these days, this was just one more arrow along my path that tells me I have chosen the right road to travel. This song’s message is especially poignant as the holiest days in the Christian calendar are nearing. Here is the chorus: “….living He loved me..dying He saved me..buried He carried my sins far away..rising He justified, freely forever..one day He’s coming..oh glorious day….”! Oh glorious day, indeed, because now I truly understand just what His sacrifice means. And even more than His promise that I will join Him in heaven one day is also the promise that my daily trials, as well as joys, here on earth are the things that will continually bring me closer to Him!
