Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 163: Psalm 118

Psalm 118: 24

This is the day that the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.


Sometimes, well most of the time, people think of this verse when they are happy.  When the sun is shining and everything is going their way.

However, there is a flip side to it. 

This (no matter what: spilled coffee, rude customer, unruly kid, fight with the spouse, obnoxious coworker, unwelcomed diagnosis....) is the day that the Lord has made.

If God only  made good days, we wouldn't appreciate them.  We would probably complain about being bored. 

I read in a book where its ok to be honest with God about how you feel.  He knows it anyway, so you might as well not hide it.  He's a good listener.  Let Him know about your problems, maybe it will make you feel better to get it out.

Let God know what your troubles are.  God can give you a reason to be joyful even if you can't think of one.

God Bless You,
