Joyce Meyer – Every Day Is a New Day

 

This [day in which God has saved me] is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. — Psalm 118:24

God wants us to have joy in the midst of our ordinary, everyday lives—even on the worst days.

There were times in my life when I dreaded facing each day. All I could think about were my circumstances—wondering how Dave and I were going to pay the bills or get everything done that we needed to do. Sometimes I wanted to pull the covers over my head and just stay in bed.

I was so wrapped up in worry that I was missing the point: God had created a new day, and He created it so I could enjoy it.

Every single day is filled with all kinds of situations that could upset you—things like losing your car keys or getting caught in a traffic jam. But you can choose to be at peace and in control in the midst of them.

When we take our minds off of ourselves and our circumstances and put our focus on God and loving others, we are embracing an attitude that honors Him and enables us to view every day as an exciting new gift from God.
