On my way to work this morning, I went,
‘Whoa today is February 29! A Leap Year !’
I am not sentimental about the day, I just consider it another day of extra.
Another day to leap, reach out and touch God or to spend more time doing something extra that makes you feel optimistic.
I see it as another extra 24 hours to do something GREAT- something you really wanted to do but you thought you needed more time -You have twenty-four hours extra to be positive [even if you’ve been pessimistic the entire month].
Today is a day to be cheerful and hopeful- to love, to share, to appreciate, to do something unusual for somebody. Including that person or people you feel don’t really deserve it- show an act of kindness- just because you are in the position to do so.
Probably you are in a position where you would like somebody to reach out to you-but nobody is forth coming- do not feel dejected.
There is someone, somebody, one special person who is willing to reach out to you now. His love is unfathomable and unconditional.
In His own case He is not reaching out to you because today is an extra day-He has always been trying to reach out to you. He feels your pain and is willing to take your shame.
At this moment I remember a passage reading from the Children’s Bible. Hopefully it might make sense to you whatever season of life you might find yourself in. It reads: “The person who trusts in the Lord will be blessed.
The Lord will show him or her that he can be trusted.– “Jeremiah 17 verse 7.
Could you try something unusual today? There is nothing to lose, stretch out to somebody and if you need to reach out to Jesus- why not do so today- February 29. He can be trusted, He really can.
Why not trust him today -February 29 [If you are reading this on the day], but even if it is not He is the same everyday, still reach out to Him, instead of waiting to the next February 29.
Hope you do something worthwhile to enjoy today and every other day that you are alive!!!
Thanks for reading.
