"You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound. I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety." (Psalm 4:7-8 NIV)
The four-year son came up to the breakfast table. Instead of the usual 'good morning', he met us with "What really fun thing will happen today?" It was really a good question, and a wonderful attitude to life. When we belong to Jesus' family, we have the right to begin each day with an expectation that something good will happen.
It’s clear that there are dark days in a Christian's life. But faith in God allows us to face difficulties in a positive way with Him. When we were new Christians we sometimes sang especially when we faced adversity:
Something wonderful must come from this,
It must result in something wonderful.
Because the Lord God can only do wonderful things,
So something wonderful must come from this.
Help me to accept this day from You and expect it to be a good day. Thank You that everything you do, You do in faithful love for me.
