Psalm 118:24-25, NIV: This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. O LORD, save us; O LORD, grant us success.

Today, you have been given a unique and wonderful gift. The gift is today. It is a new day. It can be, to borrow from the adage, the first day of the rest of your life. Consider with that, that all good things come from God, and that all the good that He has built in your life to this point can be seen as a foundation to build new things upon. Today is ready to be set up on that foundation. What will you make of it? Even if it resembles days before, it does not have to be identical. So many of our days are what we make of them. But consider what God could make of your “today.” You can live today as unto God. And even if your day seems ordinary, you can lay your head on your pillow at the end of today and enjoy the fact that if nothing else, you pleased God--today.
