This is the Day

My 7 year old took a long time getting moving this morning, and when he finally come out of his room asked me, “Did everyone else go to the car?” I said yes, and gave him a hug, since his whole body turned downward at my affirmation. His hands balled into fists and he punched the air, shouting,”I didn’t even get a bowl of cereal! Now I need to wait until later! This is the worst morning ever.”

I told him it didn’t need to be, and offered him some blueberry Belvita biscuits. I even tried to make it more attractive by telling him it was the last pack, so clearly, it was meant for him. His scowl slowly turned around as he accepted them from me before scampering out the door.

This is the day that the Lord has made:
This dreary day,
This running late day,
This no time for breakfast so you had a granola bar in the car day,
This you lost your mid-day snack day,
This “I can’t even believe it’s not 9:00 yet” day…Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

If you opened your eyes this morning, felt breath in your lungs and your feet touch the floor, you have the power to turn things around at any point in your day. Things might be taking longer to get started, there might be some unplanned interruptions, everything that can go wrong might go wrong and still you have been given the power of life and the authority to speak that life into your circumstances.

This is the day that the Lord has made:
Full of potential
Full of Grace
Full of the hope of a new day, a new week and a new month.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
