“Today”… Is The Greatest Day, I’ve Ever Known!

Posted: February 20, 2015 in Today

My mind, will and emotions want me to believe that today is different from any other. That, it could be a good day, a bad day or even a really terrible day. my heart and spirit man tell me that today is no different than any other day, that “Today is the greatest day i’ve every known!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTNNBu5kreM

At first i added “there are no good days and there are no bad days, just days of grace… some to endure and some to enjoy.” While that seems like life for most of us, i no longer believe that God desires for me to endure a single moment of the life,  circumstances, and including people.

The reason my mind, will and emotions would like for me to wait and see if today is good or bad is because Ann Marie is going through surgery today. In fact by the time this post is read it will probably be all over. i’m posting this prior to the actual time because the results of that surgery have no effect on whether Ann Marie and i declare this day as a good day or a bad day. We determined first thing this morning when we arose around 4:00am that “Today is the greatest day we’ve ever known! Psalm 118:24 “This day belongs to the LordLet’s celebrate and be glad today.”

i make no claim to having mastered this idea that there are no good days nor bad days, just days of grace, but i do take intentional steps and speak intentional words to grow into it in every way conceivable.

My favorite John Maxwell book is called “Today Matters.” It has been a life changing book and i’ve read it at least 6 times and done to course at least 4 other time. Yep… it’s one of my top ten. Malcolm X says that, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” This goes along with my 2013 focus words. i must do today what others will not, so that tomorrow i can do what others can not.images-4

i’ll close with the words of Dr Seuss, “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”

“Today” is the greatest day i have ever known.
