365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 63-West Palm Beach, Florida:
This is the day that the Lord has made, so let us rejoice and be glad! We have heard that a million times and it still has a certain spiritual ring to it that is very uplifting. We all have to take the time to remember the joy of life and to give God all of the praise. Even in our darkest moments there is a reason for that particular season, which always leads us back to Jesus as our Lord and Savior no matter the circumstance.
We could and should thank God hundreds of times per day, as we accept the blessings that we are constantly receiving. For every negative events of the day there are at least ten positive moments that can easily offset that one adverse action that seems to always and unfortunately bring us down. This usually happens because we allow someone or something to take control of our lives, until we come to our senses and snap out of our funk or anger spell. God usually has a way for that process to happen much quicker, and we should always be ever mindful of that as we call about Jesus to forgive us for our wrongdoings and sins.
It is extremely easy to go down the road of negativity that usually begins with an action by someone else that upsets us. We begin to fall into the devils trap as he uses our thoughts against us to spark thoughts of revenge. It really takes the strength of God to overcome this dilemma. The great news is when we give the glory to God and pray for our enemies, we will have more time to thank God through our own thoughts and actions. In addition, through our relationship with God we can reduce the time spent on people who need prayer just as much as we do, in a rehabilitating way.
