Each one of us may have had an unique day in our lives, a day different from the rest of all days, a day which marked a new setpoint in our lives, a day which changed our life forever, a day when we embarked on a new mission and never looked back, a day which was the deciding principle of our life.
If ever such a day came in our lives, I am sure that after this day we were a transformed person, a person with a promise to uphold the beauty and virtues of the moment that altered the course of life for the better.
We all would have definitely thanked God for placing such a day in the destiny chartered out for us knowing fully well that the moments of this day is going to continue for all times.
If we look back at some of the significant days that changed the lives of many in the Bible. At the Annunciation, Mary's life was changed forever. From that day onwards, she had a special role to play as the Mother of God, to bring Jesus into the world, to help him complete his plan of salvation and to further continue his mission on earth with his apostles long after Jesus ascended into the highest heavens. Years later after her own Assumption, her work did not end on this earth, She continues to plead for her children from heaven and this she will do for all eternity.
When God called Moses to lead his people out of Egypt, that day was the deciding day of his life. He led the people out of slavery, tendered to them in the desert for forty years until he gave up his spirit on Mt. Nebo just before the Israelites could enter the Promised Land.
When the Samaritan woman encountered Jesus at the well, her life was never the same again. She lived a new life of hope with the promise of the living waters that would quench her thirst forever.
When Jesus called his apostles and they left everything to follow him, that day was the glorious day in their destiny because they were going to walk with God himself on this earth and later on in their journey be martyred for the sake of spreading the good news of Christ.
In life we experience God in various forms and every other day. He may be performing little miracles and great miracles at appointed times. No little miracle is however small when done by God but has a greatness of its own and the power to set us aflame.
We can never know when and how we may have touched the lives of others and struck a chord in their hearts. Every day brings forth a new story, a new gladness, new revelations and new promises.
When Love touches us, it touches us forever. That day is the dawn of a new and deep emotion that goes forth to pour itself in rapturous ways on many more other days. We pledge ourselves to the commitment of this day and seal it in our hearts for evermore.
For some Yesterday was the Diamond day, for others Today was the starting line and yet for others, Tomorrow may be the Sunrise point. We just need to have the courage to believe that this day will surely dawn.
A philosopher once said; "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".
At times we may feel that we have a strict discourse on religion to follow and it is all very hard. But if we are firmly planted in the Lord and His word, then we realise that each day is a cakewalk of faith and holiness and all so easy to achieve until we walk straight into the gates of heaven with a readiness prepared on earth.
The Prophet Micah tells us (4:1,2,6); "In days to come the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised up above the hills.
Peoples shall stream to it, and many nations shall come and say:‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.’.On that day, says the Lord, I will assemble the lame
and gather those who have been driven away, and those whom I have afflicted. The lame I will make the remnant, and those who were cast off, a strong nation;
and the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion now and for evermore."
When God made a Covenant with His people in the olden days, He sealed it with the blood of animals. However when Jesus came, He sealed this Covenant with His own blood.
We also read in Ezekiel 37:26-28; "I will make a Covenant of peace with them, it shall be an everlasting covenant with them, and I will bless them and multiply them and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them forever more. My dwelling place shall be with them. I will be their God and they shall be my people. Then the nations will know that I the Lord sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary is in the midst of them for evermore."
Tomorrow we enter the Holy week and from the time Jesus entered Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover, we too journey with Him throughout the week that led to his betrayal, arrest, crucifixion, death and His victorious Resurrection to live forever.
We too join Him in His solemn journey until the day we live with him onwards in heaven and for evermore at His side.
So let us always be enthusiastic and go out with joy, streaming forth in delight to welcome the Lord in our hearts waving the palms of faith, hope and love knowing that this day marked the start of our own new life with the Lord for light years to follow thereafter.
