This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. - Psalm 118:24
As you awake, do you ever feel like it's just going to be another predictable day? You have a to-do list a mile long. Nothing special, just the daily tasks and things that keep us busy. Maybe you think today is just another day to get through.
But God wants us to see each day as an adventure, with Him as our guide. Instead of trying to make your day into what you want it to be, you can praise God and ask that He opens your eyes to all the things He may have prepared for you. Maybe the long line at the post office is an opportunity to pray. Maybe the overburdened cashier really needs a smile and encouraging word. Maybe the daily tasks that feel like burdens are opportunities to share God's love with those around us, or to teach us qualities like patience, persistance, and hope.
Each day is God's precious gift to you; You only have one chance to live it. And your smile, kind word, or example of patience may be God's gift to someone else today. Trust that God is with you every minute, working in your life, and through your life to share God's love with others. Jesus says to us in Matthew "You are the salt of the earth, but if salt loses its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown
out and trampled under people's feet." (Matthew 5:13, ESV). Don't be afraid to season someone's life with God's saltiness today. And thank Him for this day - no matter what happens.
Expect suprises! When you live your life with God, no day will ever be boring or predictable. Don't take the easiest path. Don't just get through the day - Live it! Be willing to follow Him wherever He leads. Even when His way seems predictable, the most exciting place to be is by His side.
