Always waiting for that best day ever?
My 5 year old daughter is always jolly and everyday she tells me. ” Mom, this is the best day ever!”
God’s word reminds us to be like children. They see things the way God would want us to view things. Knowing that God has everything under control, to care for us, to hold us and comfort us, to pick us up when we are hurting.
My daughter sure reminds me that there’s no better day than today. If I am waiting for the best day ever to come tomorrow or someday, there may not be a tomorrow or a someday.
I can’t look at the past and how I had a really good day. That’s behind me. The best day ever is today! The best day ever is now! While I am in now, I just need to find things about today that I can count on, to make the most of today feel like it’s the last day of my life. But how when I have so many things going wrong today?
- Even having so many things going wrong, bouncing from one wall to another, try to look at what you can be thankful for. God loves you and has you for a purpose. Whatever it is you are going through, He has the best plans for your life. Plans not to harm you, but plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
- Look at others who have it worse than you do and find ways to help them. By doing so, it helps to not get caught up in self pity and playing the victim.
- Enjoy God’s creation as you take walks and imagine God walking right beside you to hold and lead you by the hand.
- Don’t look at your past mistakes to define who you are today. Each day God gives us a fresh start. ” great is His faithfulness, His mercies begin afresh each morning.” Lamentations 3:23
Make today, your best day, Embrace it and know that God is a God of today, not yesterday in just history, not tomorrow only but of now. He’s present when you need Him. It all starts by making Him your friend. Talking to Him as you would talk to a friend.
” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here. ” 2 Corinthians 5:17
