This is definitely a good one!! After we’ve worked through the other nine disciplines for either maintaining a meaningful marriage or making sure that we are living life to God’s idea of fullness as singles, we need to make sure that each day is fun!
Psalm 118:24 says this –
We have to note the determination in this verse – let us rejoice – it’s a choice that we get the privilege to make each and every morning we are blessed to open our eyes to another beautiful day.
I know that sometimes it’s hard. When you’re kids have been up all night, when you’ve been studying for an exam into the wee small hours or when you have to get up for work earlier than you ever thought was reasonable... but it’s still a blessing and a choice. I love the poem (below) that reminds us that everything we complain about is a blessing in disguise.
We have been blessed with another day to live life to the full for God’s glory. Our purpose for the day has to be to make that choice to rejoice and truly embrace the challenge of doing God’s will and showering Him with the glory.
As Gabby Douglas, US gymnast and Olympic champion said,
‘I give all the glory to God. It’s kind of a win-win situation.
The glory goes up to him and the blessings fall down on me.’
Let’s fully embrace each day, making the choice to rejoice and be glad whatever our situation or the mood we wake up in!! What ways can you make today fun for your husband, family, friends and yourself? And how can you bring glory and honour to your Father above in the process?
Let us know what you do!!
And above, keep shining... J
