This is the day the Lord has made. Let us be glad and rejoice in it.
Last Friday God had other plans. My eyes fell upon this verse. No tune. No mind wandering off to churches past. This time around these words found some traction.
THIS is the day the Lord has made.
This is THE day the Lord has made.
This is the day that THE LORD HAS MADE.
And so REJOICE. Be GLAD in that.
I reflected upon those very familiar words all through the day (the one that the Lord had made) and it gave added joy and purpose to each of my tasks. By late afternoon I began to imagine what it would be like to start each and every day aware that it was a day the Lord had made, worthy of joy and full of Kingdom potential. Because this isn't a verse just for a Sunday chorus. It's a verse for every day.
Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
