Yesterday was not that great, if you don’t mind my saying. Nothing really big, I just had a lot of little details I messed up. I worried over things I pretended I had control. I planned and plotted about how my day should go. I said some things I shouldn’t have said. I didn’t stop and pray to ask God to direct my steps, to reign in my humdrum day. Yesterday I served the time god, the worry god, the control freak god. I looked back at the memorials I built to these gods and was discouraged. Building a house of cards, I realized I hadn’t done anything that counted in the way of Kingdom living. I felt empty, angry, defeated. At the end of the day, I had an email that showed me one little spot that mattered and my day turned around–a sign post that set me back on the narrow trail. And I woke up this morning and found it’s a new day, a chance to try again with His help. These are just a few of the pearls I found in today’s reading.
“God is higher than anything and anyone, outshining everything you can see in the skies. Who can compare with God, our God, so majestically enthroned, surveying his magnificent heavens and earth?”
“You who fear God, trust in God! Trust your Helper! Trust your Ruler!”
“Thank you for responding to me; you’ve truly become my salvation! The stone the masons discarded as flawed is now the capstone!
This is God’s work. We rub our eyes—we can hardly believe it! This is the very day God acted— let’s celebrate and be festive! Salvation now, God. Salvation now! Oh yes, God—a free and full life!”
He turns your day around as much as He turns your life in a new direction.
