Good day, bad day — your choice
Every day provides potential. God desires that life be a rewarding journey. Winter's promise, spring's declaration, summer's fullness, and fall's harvest vividly and consistently illustrate divine characteristics of order and beauty.
Psalms 118:24 (NIV) offers example and encouragement. “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” The choice to “make the day” is given by God.
I remember my mother's words of wisdom. Her version of the Psalmist's words were, “God, some days are harder than others. You made them all. There is nothing too hard for you and me today.” Each morning her assuring words were, “As thy days are, so shall thy strength be.” Deuteronomy 33:25 (KJV)
Some people are like wheelbarrows, not beneficial unless pushed. Some people are like canoes, they require paddling. Some people are like kites, keep them on a string or they fly away. Some people are like kittens, contented when petted. Some people are like footballs, their bounce is unpredictable.
Some people are like trailers, they need pulling to get anywhere. Some people are like balloons, full of air and read to explode. Some people are like neon lights, always going on and off. And yet, many people are like their creator, ready to “make the day.”
