This is the Day the LORD Has Made

There is a sense of wonder about the dawning of another day when we look at each new day as a gift from a loving God.  Even when we are facing illness, sadness, confusion, or loss, these events are part of God’s handcrafting an eternal string of pearls.  From the perspective of eternity and with knowledge of a loving God through whose hands all things must pass, what seems unbearable today is tomorrow’s beauty from ashes.  No matter what comes today, know that God loves you.  He is hard at work today to give your life eternal beauty.  Imagine today as a pearl He is faithfully forming to be revealed some day in all its perfect beauty.

Rejoice today and wait upon the LORD.

Lamentations 3:18 So I say, “My splendor is gone and all that I had hoped from the LORD.” 19 I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. 20 I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. 21 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
