I'm beginning a new post series...Thought for the Day.
It comes from my study of the Bible and things I'd like to share.
I hope you will follow along each Friday.
I know...it's not January...
but I was a teacher for a long time and as each August rolled around,
it always felt like a new year;
I was reading my devotion this week and the verse of the day was:
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
The message in the devotion was, "... that each day God gives us a new beginning. Because of Jesus'death and resurrection, our sins are forgiven and we have a shiny new day before us. This day is special - it will never come again. This day gives us another chance to praise and glorify God in all we do and say."
And...if you don't feel like rejoicing today, talk to God about it and I'll bet He'll give you a reason
He loves you.
Have a blessed weekend!
