Word of Encouragement

I am encouraged by my God.  Every day!  A great lesson for me right now is, “today is the only day you have right now, so make it a good one.”  It is not like there are not days when I feel discouraged.  There are.  It is just that now I know what I need to do on those days.  Wanna know?  The whole of it lies in a simple word, trust.  I have come to trust that today is a day the Lord has made, so I will rejoice and be glad in it.  Even though my heart may be sad, my soul can rejoice.  The reality of this overflows in all of scripture, old and new testaments, men and women, prophets, kings, slaves and priests.  Nearly everyone comes to the same conclusion.  And though each of us may travel a different difficult path to get to the answer, the answer is the same for all of us.  So friends, this is the very best day God has in store for you.  Make the most of it.  Rejoice and be glad.
