What’s Right with this Picture?

Each day we’re blessed with a fresh start, a chance to start anew. What an amazing gift we’ve been given, but all too often without realizing how we take this for granted, it slips away. The daily grind of work, shuffling children to and from, running errands, meeting deadlines… wears us down. At the end of the day it’s easy to find so many things to grumble about.

We tend to let the negatives flood our thoughts; after all, misery loves company. What happened to make you feel so down? Was it really that upsetting when your supervisor was critical of your work? Did your coworker realize they hurt your feelings? Were you really that angered when that car cut you off in traffic? STOP!

Take a deep breath and really truly think about your day. How did your day begin? Were you greeted by your children with smiles and hugs? Did your spouse pull you close for a good morning kiss? Were the birds singing as you stepped outside? Were you able to catch the morning colors of the sky as the sun crossed the horizon? Did someone brighten your day because they took time to smile?

Knowing that we’ve been given a precious gift, one that only He can give, challenges us each day to work His will and be His hands as He wants the best for us.

 Psalm 118:23 This is the LORD’S doing; It is marvelous in our eyes.
