Reclamation Proclamation

Today is going to be an amazing day! After spending some time over coffee with the best husband in the whole world, (truly), I am going to go to work at the local nursing home. We only have about sixty residents right now. Their lives are rich with memories and experiences. They are almost always happy to see me and always very kind. There will be puppies at work, (three baby yorkies) and they too, are always happy to see me. What is better that holding and hugging a puppy? Tonight, I will get the privilege of being with my church family. We will sing and pray together and then share a meal. I will come away spiritually, physically, and emotionally filled. It will be an amazing day.
Today will be an amazing day! Today we can make a proclamation. We can blow the trumpets and herald to the world that we have been reclaimed. We belonged to God and then we were lost. And satan claimed us as his own. He kept us enslaved by sin, bound and entangled, helpless and hopeless. He kept us blindfolded so we could not see the glory of God, or His love working all around us. We could not see His plans for our rescue unfolding. Satan tried to desensitize us, filling our minds and hearts with a constant barrage of negative violent and lustful thoughts. He held us captive, deceiving us, convincing us that the entire world did not extend past his dungeon of sin and that our entire purpose was looking out for number one. And we, we were miserable.
But, Today will be an amazing day! Today we can make a proclamation. We can blow the trumpets and shout to the world that we have been reclaimed. God loved us and sent a Knight in shining armor to rescue us. He burst into our hearts and reclaimed us as His own. He released us from the chains of sin, and disentangled us from the choking stifling darkness of the world around us. He removed the blindfold, allowing us to see the beauty and splendor of an awesome God. He removed the gag and gave us a voice, a voice to sing His praise, the voice of reclamation.
Today will be an amazing day! Today is the day we will make a proclamation! We will blow the trumpets! We will shout to the world ---we have been reclaimed! We were lost, now we are found. We were blind, now we see. We were captives and now we are free. We were dead, now we live. We have found our voice----and today----Today is the day we proclaim it to the world. Today will be an amazing day!

Peace
Neva

Neva,
It wasn't until 2000 that I truly realized that today is a day of Proclamation. I didn't know it at the time that that was what it was called. It truly is amazing when you grasp how wide, deep and high is the love of God through Christ Jesus!
AMEN!

Mr. Neva - I actually like the Me Neva thing you had going on! Kinda like Me Tarzan, you Jane.

That is the kind of spirit we need every day. I try to get our youth inspired to behave and live like they really believe they have been redeemed.
Good words, Neva

I like your choice of words here, sister. I may use it in a sermon if that is okay?

Keep up the good work

Neva, you make me smile every time I stop by. I think if we would read this post every day, it would turn around at least half the days that had a bad start to them. (o; It's amazing what a little encouragement can do for us.

Nursing homes remind us of our mortality and also help us to put into perspective our blessings.

Peace.
