Let us rejoice.
Cartoon of a boy at the front door and a Mom. Boy says, “I know, ‘This is the day the Lord has made.’ Can't I rejoice and be glad tonight?”
This is the day the LORD has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
(Psalm 118:24, New King James Version)
Do rainy days (or snowy days) and Mondays get you down? Are you a night owl? does the very thought of morning make you want to file a protest with Department of Weights, Days and Measures?
It can be tough when we don't feel like rejoicing. We like to look forward and imagine when we will feel like rejoicing in the future. Not a future thinker? Some of us like to think back to glory days when we felt like a million bucks and you were sure you can take on the world.
The past is gone. We don't know what the next minute will bring All God has given us is this present moment. Let's rejoice because He has given us another day to celebrate.
Look around you today and think about reasons you can rejoice right now. You can start by being thankful your computer and Internet connection is working. That's a miracle right there!
