Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6

 The Creator was gracious when time was divided into daily doses. Twenty-four hour cycles allow us to plan and experience life in manageable segments. At times we are anxious to see down the road, what will happen a year from now, a week from now and even anticipate what will happen tomorrow. Thankfully, we do not have a crystal ball to see ahead. Today is a day of trusting. It’s a day of listening for direction. It’s a day of knowing that the Lord is able to keep us despite any uncertainty. We can take life one day at a time recognizing that the every detail of our lives is working together for our good. We can experience one day at a time with the Lord.

 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28

My heart is full of gratitude for this day.  Today is designed and made by God, so I can approach it with anticipation and hope.  My Heavenly Father loves me and has created another 24 hours of opportunities to experience His love for me.  Grace and mercy surround my journey and I am thankful.   The Holy Spirit provides guidance and strength to make good decisions about every aspect of my life.  I will listen for His direction with an open heart and mind.  I am yielded to the Lord’s higher ground for my steps and thinking.  He is leading me toward my purpose and I am thankful.

This is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be happy today! Psalms 118:24 ESV

This is the day that the Lord has made. I will be glad and rejoice in it. Psalm 118:Newport_Sun_Set324


We approach this day with expectancy about the Lord’s continued work in our lives. Our Heavenly Father is faithful to each of us and is continuing to perfect us in Him. He is smoothing out the rough spots of unforgiveness and lack of compassion in us for His people. He is renewing health and thinking. He is making us stronger and more able. He is providing renewed vision for ministry and service to the least of these. He is compelling His bright light of love and mercy to shine through His people. He is working out our situations for our good in ways that we could not imagine. He is God. We thank Him. We honor Him. We give Him all the glory for this day.
