The day the Lord has made - Rejoice! (Psalm 118:24)

"This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it." - Psalm 118:24

For me this means rejoicing not at the troubles my friend is having in his marriage but rather, the opportunity I have to speak into it. Not having to get up early in the morning, but getting to go for a bike ride with friends when I do.

It means love my daughter and delight in her. Bless my wife and delight in her. Pray for my friends and enjoy them, bless them.

For me it means remembering that time, while occasionally annoying, is still a gift from God. That while death may be gain, to live is Christ. It reminds me that I cant have this hour back. I cant have this day back. I need to make the best of them.

And rejoice and be glad through all of it.
