This is the day.........

Don't let the sun go down on your grievancesImage by kevindooley via Flickr

Yes, in Psalm 118:24, the Word tells us that "this is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it."

We will never pass this way again. Once each day is gone, it is gone, never to return. What we have done and what we have said, is gone. Since my Mom's death, almost 9 months ago, I've thought so much about each and every day. Each day has become more important to me. I always thought I knew that life was fragile and uncertain, but I really didn't. Her sudden death brought a stark realization to me and I now really do know that life is fragile and uncertain.

I am not promised tomorrow, and I should live each and every day as though it could be my last. That is hard to do. But, when I do think that way and try to live my life that way, I feel much happier. Why? Most likely because I've done something unexpected for someone , made a memory, loved my family just a little bit more and allowed the Lord to use me as He sees fit.

My prayer is that I will live each day as though it could be my last, not as though there is no hope, but as though my hope lies in Him who gives us each day. Yes, each day is a day that the Lord has made and we are to rejoice and be glad in it. I look forward to tomorrow!

  1. Very good word! I never really thought about having today be my last until reading "Crazy Love" It totally changed my perspective and it is something I think about all the time now!
