Pastor Mike’s Minute Message: I Choose Today To Feel…

This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalms 118:24 NLT)

Today I got a call from a friend, they had just received some distressing news from the doctor. No sooner had I left their house after consoling them, I received a text from another friend saying, “This is a great day!” This family had been through some tough times too but were coming out of it. Funny how one day can be on two opposite spectrums for both individuals.

The truth we know is that everyday is the same, it is a gift from God. Regardless of bad news or good fortunes, the day is the same. We choose daily whether it will be a good day or not simply by how we allow ourselves to feel, how we choose to interpret news, or even what we keep our minds fixated on. Good or bad, the sun will still rise, birds will still sing, and we will always face cycles of triumph and challenges.

While not a fan of author Henry Miller, I do like his sentiment: “Tomorrow is no hazardous affair, a day like any other day: tomorrow is the result of many yesterdays and comes with a potent, cumulative effect. I am tomorrow what I chose to be yesterday and the day before.” Live today and each day as the gift God intended it to be! You are loved!
