Today's Scripture This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:2
In every season of our life, we’re tempted to focus on our present burdens and miss the blessings. We love it when we receive the blessing—the promotion, the new house, the baby—but with the blessing comes new burdens—responsibilities, payments, cares. Rather than enjoy where we are on the way to where we’re going, we get so caught up in the challenges that we miss the beauty of this moment. You could be in one of the best seasons of your life, but you don’t realize it because you’re focused on the struggles, on what you don’t like, on what’s taking so long.
At some point you have to put your foot down and say, “This is the day the Lord has made, and I will not allow my burdens to steal my enjoyment of my blessings.” Change your perspective. Shift your focus from the burden to the blessing, from what’s wrong to what’s right, from what you don’t have to what you have. Make the most of every day. A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for this day and for this season of my life. Thank You for every blessing You’ve given me, and thank You for the burden and responsibilities that have come with them. Help me to make the most of every day by focusing on Your goodness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
