MENTAL HEALTH MONDAY: HOSANNA
“They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the king of Israel!” John 12:13
This coming Sunday, we will celebrate Palm Sunday. This is the beginning of Holy Week, and I want to encourage the WC community to reflect and remember. Carve out some quiet time this week to read Matthew 21:1-11 and reflect on Jesus’ last days leading to the cross and His resurrection.
Traditionally, on Palm Sunday, churches pass out palm branches, and we sing or read the word, Hosanna. What does Hosanna mean? “The Hebrew root words are found in Psalm 118:25, which says, “Save us, we pray, O LORD!”. As we remember, welcome Jesus into your hearts and renew your willingness to follow Him. Allow Him to enter the places you feel worried and stressed about, and let your Hosanna be known. Turn your focus to Jesus and read His Word. Set specific time aside for prayer and worship, and know this is the best way to fight any battle. You will discover peace in the storm.
When you celebrate Jesus this Sunday at church, you will feel refreshed and confident that He came to save you and sees and hears you. We have the gift of eternal life in Jesus, and His sacrifice is for you so you can experience the never-ending love of our Heavenly Father for eternity.
“Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” Psalm 118:26
