If This Is The Day…

I grew up singing hymns in church. And since I would stay with my grandparents (Southern Baptist preacher and his wife) some in the summers, well, then I learned all four verses of most of those hymns.

And they tend to bubble up in my soul pretty frequently even though I don’t sing them as often anymore.

This morning, after 5 hours of sleep, I swung my legs out of bed and almost automatically said to myself…

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. ‭ Psalms‬ ‭118‬:‭24

But then I really started to think about that…

If this is the day that The Lord has made, then this is the day that God can make you new.

If this is the day that The Lord has made, then this is the day that God can restore to you the joy of his salvation and make you willing to obey. (Psalm 51:12)

If this is the day that The Lord has made, then this is the day that you can allow God to open your eyes to how strong you really are.

If this is the day that The Lord has made, then this is the day that God can turn your mourning into dancing and clothe you with joy. (Psalm 30:11)

If this is the day that The Lord has made, then this is the day that God can show you how to be a blessing. He can show you that you are WORTH so very much and that no matter your state, you DO have something to offer the world.

If this is the day that The Lord has made, then this is the day that God can help you become who you can be.

If this is the day that The Lord has made, then this is the day that God can make. you. free.

If this is the day The Lord has made… well then, by all means, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
