“This is the day the LORD has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:4
Every day is a blessing from God. Every day we have a chance to learn new things, have fun, spend time with family and friends, and live a life that pleases God. We should treat every day as a special gift.
Just like anything we receive for free, we can forget what a precious thing life is and take it for granted. After a person has suffered a terrible life-threatening disease or been in an accident that could have killed them, they often talk about how thankful they are for each day and how they do not want to waste their time left on earth.
We should thank God for each day we are given and use our time wisely. We do not live for ourselves alone but live to glorify God in our lives.
Though things may not go well some days and we may be sad, it is still a good day because the Lord made it and we can pray to God to help us make the right choices and to help the day go better.
If you always find ways to be unhappy, each day will be sad for you. Look for the good things that make each day special.
The Lord made this day for you. Are you happy about it? What are you going to do with this day?
