This is His Day
This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24 NLT
God gives us this day; He fills it to the brim with possibilities, and He challenges us to use it for His purposes. The 118th Psalm reminds us that today, like every other day, is a cause for celebration. The day is presented to us fresh and clean at midnight, free of charge, but we must beware: Today is a non-renewable resource—once it's gone, it's gone forever. Our responsibility, of course, is to use this day in the service of God's will and according to His commandments.
Today, treasure the time that God has given you. Give Him the glory and the praise and the thanksgiving that He deserves. And search for the hidden possibilities that God has placed along your path. This day is a priceless gift from God, so use it joyfully and encourage others to do likewise. After all, this is the day the Lord has made...
All our life is a celebration for us; we are convinced, in fact, that God is always everywhere. We sing while we work... we pray while we carry out all life's other occupations.
St. Clement of Alexandria
The church is the last place on earth to be solemn . . . provided you have lived right.
Some of us seem so anxious about avoiding hell that we forget to celebrate our journey toward heaven.
If you can forgive the person you were, accept the person you are, and believe in the person you will become, you are headed for joy. So celebrate your life.
Dear Lord, You have given me so many blessings, and as a way of saying "Thank You," I will celebrate. I will be a joyful Christian, Lord, quick to smile and slow to frown. And, I will share my joy with my family, with my friends, and with my neighbors, this day and every day. Amen
