A new day awaits you as you face the tasks that lie ahead of you.  Be grateful for the opportunities that have come to your door – whether it is open or closed — and the life upon which God has bestowed upon you. Rejoice, and be glad as you are doing something profound in your life today.  Look to hills from where your help comes and you will begin to see and feel the true sense of what God has for you today.

Today is the day that the Lord has made, let us all rejoice and be glad in it.  What are you going to do with your day? Are you up?  Are you planning to make waves today? Or are you asleep? Wow! Some of you can’t even open your eyes because you’ve stayed up way too late, so you can’t accomplish anything today, or you’re lost and don’t know where to begin. You can’t even open up your eyes because you stay up so late and then you are not able to accomplish anything in your new day today or are you just lost and can’t seem to figure out how to begin, where you should be going, what is even happening in your new day today.  

There are many reasons why you should rejoice when you wake up in the morning and give God all the glory!  Our lives can be filled with trials and tribulations, and sometimes it seems like they last all day, every day.  But it is up to you to determine how you will rejoice in the Lord, and how you will uplift Him in your life. 

That will be how He will support you during the burdens and trials and uncertainty of this world today, not just in your life, but around you as well. 

It is happening to all of us.  So decide how you are going to rejoice today, and make it a joyful experience, because you don’t have a choice — there is nothing much more than you can do.  When you rejoice, be sure to do so with sincerity so you can walk, share, and just enjoy your life to the fullest.   Life is so short — you are just a vessel passing through. Sometimes we pass through quicker than others.  

Today is the day that the Lord has made, let us all rejoice and be glad in it.  So decide today to rejoice in what God has for you. No matter what is going on around you, you deserve all of the blessings, all of the love, and all of the experiences that were designed just for you.  Stop selling yourself short. Get up out of that bed, get  out of your house, walk around the block, meet new people, and find places where you can go and rejoice with others. 

Be sure that you are hitting that Sunday pew in person. The time for virtual life is winding down for many of us — don’t let it prevent you from enjoying life activities in person again. You only have one opportunity to go around — do your best to rejoicein everything you do  today. Shout it from the rooftop –, you are the child of God and you deserve everything that God has for you.  Rejoice!  Rejoice!  Rejoice! Rejoice!  

Today is the day that the Lord has made, let us all rejoice and be glad in it.  Until next time…PEACE!
