7 weeks have passed since Easter Sunday, and with 7 days per week that makes this the 50TH day of Easter. It’s the day of Pentecost – the day that commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and the followers of Jesus Christ. It’s known as ‘The Birthday Of The Church’, so I wish all of you who are the church a very glorious and happy birthday. Represent the church well in everything that you do at everywhere that you go.
Acts 2:1-4 (NLT, 2ND Ed.)
1 On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place.
2 Suddenly, there was a sound from Heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting.
3 Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them.
4 And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.
Today I celebrate 45 months on my fantastic journey. It’s just as exciting today as it was yesterday – and last year – and 45 months ago. That’s because with God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit fully in charge – all things are possible – all things are exciting. Thank You God for keeping me alert and on my toes by constantly surprising me with your miracles. I don’t want it any other way. I lived the other way and I don’t ever want to go back.
One thing I know is that when Life’s moving slow
I’m not out here on my own
I’ve got You to get me through this
I’m on a long journey through mountains of apathy
And I’m not afraid to walk through.
It’s in the lyrics:
