As darkness befalls this day, am reminded again that, there will always be good days and bad days. We should be thankful for them all. Because both bad and good days have there blessings!
give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Thessalonians 5:18
No single day can be without a blessing. The fact that you are experiencing a bad day is in itself a blessing. Because there are those who aren’t. Today was one of those days i may call a bad day for me. Interestingly i cannot put my finger on what it is particularly that made it bad for me. Though i know the negative news cropping up from all corners of the world may have contributed to bringing dampness into my day. Collapsing buildings, people drowning in the heavy rains, politicians making senseless noise, the list is unending.
The beauty of life however is that God gives us a fresh start whenever we choose to focus on Him. So as the evening drew close, i made a phone call to my mom who shared a joke that i dare not write here that made me laugh long and hard, interesting because i was tasked to break bad news to her the passing on of her cousin earlier in the afternoon.
This jolted me to the awesome reality that however down you may be, however sad, no matter how bad you may think your day is, it will soon pass by, and you can never reclaim it. And so my prayer is;
Lord God, please enable me to be thankful for the gift of life each day regardless of my fleshly discouragements. For, just to be is a blessing!
The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:16-17
