Conntecting the Dots

Today’s a Gift


Lord, thank You for this and every day.


“This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it,” says Psalm 118:24. These words resonate with us some days more than others. Do you agree?

Our family recently vacationed at a lakefront cabin. Waking up to waterski and play on the beach made it easy to rejoice. Returning home to chores—not so much.

Regardless of our feelings, the truth remains—today’s a gift not to be wished away for tomorrow or overlooked with yearnings for yesterday. Open it with anticipation. Expect to experience God’s presence and love.

I start each morning with this Scripture. Before I roll from bed, I say, “This is the day You’ve made, Lord. I’ll rejoice and be glad in it.” This sets me in a healthy place where I’m more apt to respond in a God-honoring way come what may.

Consider adopting my habit unless you already have a similar one that works for you. Whatever you do, regard today as God’s gift. Embrace it, for it will never pass this way again.


Take Action:

Say aloud, “This is the day You’ve made, Lord. I will rejoice and celebrate!”
