This Is The Day The Lord Has Made... (Psalms 118) REJOICE!!!

Do you wake up with, "Good Morning Lord" or "Good Lord, It’s Morning?"

Some have problems in their past but living in the past can harm to the future. 

What's more, worrying about the unknowns of tomorrow can petrify us today.

God's word says, "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might."  (Eccl.9:10) This directs our efforts and focus on "The Now," THIS DAY.

Every day is a gift.  The Lord has wisdom in Matthew 6 from His Sermon on the Mount that can make each day a treasure.  Putting these words into practice will give you both balance and focus to help you succeed every day.

"Give us this day our daily bread" and "Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Dale Carnegie told the true story of Edward Evans, a family man, who had many failures in business that made him worry too much about his future. There were many pressures he dealt with as the provider to his wife and children and he was overwhelmed to a point of total exhaustion that landed him in the hospital. He was in such poor health that the doctors pronounced him "Terminal" unless something changed within the next two weeks. Edward gave up at that point and simply laid down waiting for death to arrive. He focussed on his current situation and forgot about both his past failures and his future concerns. That is when his health began to improve to where he regained his strength and was cured of all his physical ailments. Edward Evans went on to succeed in businessman but remembered the lesson he learned from his near-fatal health crisis.  Living for today, forgetting yesterday's failures and the unknowns of tomorrow, will help you function with a healthy focus on what is at hand.

"Now" is where God meets you, talks to you and blesses you. Rejoice in this.
