THIS IS THE DAY

Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Today is the 13th day, the number 13 is usually associated with bad luck, and the 13th day is a day some refrain from making critical decisions or celebrations. Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13. Manufacturers try to avoid the number in their labeling and in some multi-level building the thirteen floor is omitted altogether, some elevators skip to the 14th floor. Hotels also avoid labeling a room as the 13th room. Some also consider Judas to be the 13th person at the Lord supper table, thus unlucky – so much for superstition.

In “Attitude Is Everything” by Francie Baltazar Schwartz, the author wrote “Jerry replied, “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, ‘Jerry, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.’ I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.
“Yeah, right, it’s not that easy,” I protested.
“Yes, it is,” Jerry said. “Life is all about choices. When you cut way all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live life.”

The Psalmist put its this way. God has made this day we rejoice and be glad in it, be excited about this day and you will be glad you did.

JOY

You know joy has come when you can dance without music, when your mouth becomes the musical instruments and the whole cells of your body becomes the choir. Vibrating in harmony to the beat of your soul. It doesn't matter if you are off key, it is not important if your steps are off beat as you do the shuffle, tears of gratitude may cascade down your eyes as your heart connects with the angelic choir in heaven as you know Unspeakable joy full of glory... In that single moment you know you are created for this... to bring forth HIS praise... Halleluyah... Let the whole earth sing HIS praise...

SMALL & BIG

Don't despise what you have, take time out to understand the potential of what you carry. It may look small to you or everyone else, but with God's involvement, your time and dedication it will become big. The big is in the small, a tiny seed can make a forest. Do something with what you have NOW, your future is in your seed. YOU WILL GET THERE...

STORMS

The presence of Jesus in the boat is not a guarantee that storms of life will not come, but it is a guarantee that they will not overcome you. Every doer of the word is guaranteed to outlast the storm. The 3 Hebrew children came out of fire to their places of prominence in a foreign land, Daniel came out of the the Lion's Den unscathed, Job lost all and gained much more back. Whatever you are going through, God has an unquencheable Laughter in stock for you that will erase the pain and pressure you are going through. See as HE sees you, on the other side of the storm, fully fulfilled and satisfied, nothing missing, nothing broken. HE is waiting for you on the other side. YOU WILL GET THERE...

RELATIONSHIPS

"How you handle relationships, will determine, if you will have open doors or will be standing before doors with broken knobs" God has scheduled the people in your life for a purpose, the challenge is to recognize them and the purpose for which they are in your life Most things that God wants to get to you, will come through the vehicle of relationships, an angel may not appear to u but God will use people "In life, There are people in life that you must not MEET and there are people in life that you must not MISS. The challenge is to know the difference."
