This is the day which the LORD hath made!
Psalm 118:24 is one of my favorite Scriptures! "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
So many times we just do not feel like rejoicing on a particular day. I am very blessed that many years ago, a dear friend made me a little framed cross-stitch piece with this verse on it. I chose to hang it in the bathroom because the colors were perfect with the wallpaper. It's only been in the past few years that I recognized God's hand in prompting me to hang it there. This little verse is the first thing I see when I step out of the shower each morning.
Even when I haven't been consciously aware of it, these precious words have prompted me to have an attitude of rejoicing as I start each new day. No, the day ahead may not be filled with our favorite things. Often, we do not have any idea what a particular day may bring. But God does! It is a day that He has made, and He is our all-wise, all-knowing God. We can rejoice in that!
