God is whispering sweet somethings in your ear,
For He is not far but oh so very near.
He has wonderful things for you to behold,
That in this life you can be so very bold.
For your life here is not the point of it all,
But the glory of God that stands oh so tall.
So quiet your life and give heed to His voice,
That you may know Him and through Jesus rejoice.
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
There is much in this life in which to be depressed.
There is much in this life in which to be angry.
There is much in this life in which to be frustrated.
I recently read a blog post (I won’t get into details as they aren’t important here) that made me frustrated. Nearly ever day I watch/read something in the news that makes me roll my eyes. Each morning I wake up in some degree of back pain as I deal with arthritis. There is much in this life in which to complain.
…there is much in this life is which to rejoice.
God made this day.
God is in charge.
God has redeemed this creation through Jesus Christ.
God has created you for a purpose.
God is sovereign.
When one reflects on that (and the many other truths that could be written) how can one’s heart not rejoice?
This is indeed the day that the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it 🙂
Praise be to God!
