This Good Day

Every morning I wake up with the reality that today, on this good day, it is a gift from God. 

Right now I am here because God wanted me here on this day, in this time and at this place. It's the same for you too. We woke up today because God had plans for us. If we take time to think about that, it's pretty amazing and a bit overwhelming.

Before I even get out of bed I begin singing a song by Fernando Ortega entitled, "This Good Day."  The words to the chorus excite me knowing that the world is going about its business because God made it that way, without any help from man.

Things grow, the world turns, the sun rises than sets, the stars appear, the moon shines, the rain falls and the wind blows all because God said so. He has already gone before us and set everything in motion.  Wow! No wonder the psalmist proclaimed:

 "This is the day that the LORD has made. 
We will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118:24 (NKJV)

Take a few minutes and listen to this beautiful song.  You'll soon be singing God's praises on this good day, and every one that follows.
