Just Another Day

Does it feel like just another day?

You know, the kind of day that seems to promise nothing of significance?

At times, the routine of responsibilities can seem like a mountain to climb.

With the Lord, a day is never just another day. Every day is a new day. The new day gives you the opportunity to draw near and know and love your Lord.

Paul’s words give us a challenge for those times when it feels like just another day

I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. … But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:8, 13-14

Paul reminds us of the greater goal — knowing Christ Jesus our Lord. He helps us realize that one day we will see our Lord face to face. Every moment is working towards a goal and a prize given by our Lord Himself. We don’t realize the importance or the value of each moment. Every moment counts whether we know it or not.

I woke up one morning awhile ago — and it felt like just another day. I spent quiet time with the Lord and I had a rich time in His Word. Just another day? And then, I looked outside and I saw that the clouds were shaping up for a beautiful sunrise in the desert. I grabbed my camera and tripod just like I have many other mornings, and I raced to a special place I love for shooting the sunrise. I was not disappointed. It was beautiful and majestic! Somehow different than any other sunrise. So I gave the Lord a standing ovation and I tried to capture the image just perfectly. I learned something that day. The Lord taught me how He makes all things new on a morning that felt like just another day.

So dear friend, press on to know the Lord. Walk closely with Him. And look for His beauty in His Word and His creation. And you will discover that it is never just another day, but something filled with wonder when it is experienced with Jesus.

God bless you dear friend, as you continue on in the great adventure of knowing Him.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
