“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” Philippians 4:4
By the grace of God you made to a new day. You are blessed! Before you begin filling your schedule with plans and things to do, treasure this moment. Breathe in the goodness of God. Sense Him smiling on you. Feel His love. See His hand upon your life and stand in total awe of Him. Tell your cares and worries “goodbye” because God is at the helm of your life and He is steering you to His expected end for you. There is so much excitement in heaven over you because this is a time of wholeness, rejuvenation, refreshing and due reward. God is not a hard task master that is all about work, productivity, quotas and counts. He gets pleasure when His children are happy, satisfied in Him and joyful, not only because we know Him, but because we have received from Him what He has promised. Treasure every moment God gives you. Stay in His grace, get understanding from every challenging life lesson and if you must resolve to do anything, resolve to surround yourself with what you love, surround yourself with who you love, and to enjoy your life.
Prayer: Father God, I love you. I am so blessed to have this intimate relationship with you. Thank you for the gift of life. I receive your love, your rest and your reward. I trust you with my heart and with my life like I never have before. Be glorified in me. Make this time of my life breathtakingly gorgeous. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
