Every day is a special day. Another chance, another opportunity.
I have mentioned several times that I spend most of my days on the telephone and in conference calls. I have been very stressed about some other tasks that I have been asked to complete that I have been kept away from because of these calls. The stress from that has just been ridiculous, and so I have often been praying for ways to handle it.
Well, I think today is a gift and an answer. We like to point out the big things God does for us- the healings, new jobs etc- but today I want to emphasis a small little thing. Its a day on the calendar without any meetings!
I think this is an answer to prayer – a gift, a simple gift, a special day.
Today, I will do my best to use the day given to me to reduce the stress that was creeping into other areas, other more important areas, of my life. You probably have been given some simple gifts today as well. Take the opportunity to use those – take advantage of them, treat them well! and give Glory where it is due.
Psalm 103:1-5 (New International Version)
1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
