Borrowed from the book, Great Day Every Day, by Max Lucado:

Every Day Deserves a Chance!

This is the day the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalm 118:24

The first word in the verse leaves us scratching our heads. ‘This is the day the Lord hath made’?

Perhaps holidays are the days the Lord has made.  Wedding days are the days the Lord has made.

Easter Sundays…super sale Saturdays…vacation days…the first days of hunting season…these are the days the Lord has made.  But ‘this is the day’?

This is the day includes every day.  Divorce days, final exam days, tax days, sending-your first born off to college days.

The next time you are mired in a bad day, check your outlook with these three questions:

1.    What do I feel guilty about?

2.   What am I worried about?

3.   What am I about?

Reflect on your answers with these reminders:

         Yesterday…forgiven.

         Tomorrow…surrendered.

         Today…clarified.

Jesus’ design for a good day makes such sense.  His grace erases guilt.  His oversight removes fear.

His direction removes confusion.
