Suns Up! Begin Anew!

24 The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. Psalm 118:24

Yeah for new days! If the previous day left much to be desired the good news is that it is gone never to return. Whatever it is that is getting you down and keeping you in despair now you have another new chance to start again. Don't you just love fresh starts especially if you have messed up? God makes all things new and He is on our side. His desire is not for you to wake up and go "oh no not another day" but to get up out of bed and say to Him "thanks for being alive!"

Instead of complaining about having to go to work maybe thank God you have a job to go to. Start a new habit of waking up and instead of saying "I'm just not a morning person" try quoting the scripture above. The New King James Version translation is often more familiar and it says "This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it."

    Now rise and shine and give God the glory and enjoy your day!

PRAYER: Each new day is a wonderful gift from you Lord. Help me to use it wisely and to shine your love today wherever I go. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. Becky: I had a spell recently where I had to say that verse in order to get up. It worked. I like your thought that yesterday will not come back. I actually had some bad experiences yesterday. Thank you for your message today.
