It’s A Daily Thing

This is the day

I have had various Scripture verses jump out at me over the past few years that I knew were meant to serve a purpose for a particular situation in my life at the time.

The most recent one has been “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

I have woken up with this verse on my mind often lately and, paired with “Give us this day our daily bread” as well as a few others, I am very aware of the reason for these Scriptures to be my new resting place.

You see, try as I might to take it a day at a time, I have a dreadful tendency to think ahead…worry ahead…fret about the future…

Funds are tight. Vehicles need repair. Health takes a nosedive. Appliances are not getting any younger. Grocery budget slashed yet again~how low can it go. Hair not going to cut itself.

Present income streams a little shaky. Hopeful new income streams not working out.

So God has to remind me again and again, fresh and new each morning:

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22,23

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow…” Matthew 6:34

Daily rejoicing. Daily bread. Daily mercies. Daily peace.

Daily prayer. Daily trust.

IT’S APPARENTLY A DAILY THING.

 

God has given us all hands ~ hands to serve. Let’s use them to serve Him well.

    Hey, just stumbled on your site and I think it looks great.
    And this article, very well written.
    It really is a daily thing.
    It’s why we need to let go and let God more often.
    It’s why His Grace and His steadfast Love is renewed new every morning,
    His faithfulness forever Great.
