Glory Seed Devotional’s 2018 Experiencing Jesus, the Prelude to Life
There are only good, better, best days…
“This came from the Lord; it is wondrous in our sight. This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:23–24)
Monday, I wrote about having a bad day, this morning while writing my daily letter to God the Holy Spirit stepped in and scolded and reminded me since I’ve lived 3 or 4 years beyond the life expectancy of a patient with pulmonary fibrosis each day is a gift from God. Here’s a clip from the letter that start it all… Thank you for another day, what I should be doing thanking You for every day I wake up. And I need to drill into my thick skull any day I wake up is a good day! I am sorry for thinking otherwise.
Then remembering Psalms 118 I took it upon myself to change it slightly and promise the LORD… “This is the day the LORD has given me I will enjoy every minute of it!” For me there is what I consider a line (similar to the Mason Dixon Line) dividing a life lived in the “land of positivity” or in the “land of negativity” and it seems in our world today the “law of gravity” is in favor the land of negativity constantly pulling us downward.
While there is a great deal of workings behind the scene our perspective and imaging (imagination) on life plays a huge part in what side of the “line” we experience. I believe when we give our lives over to Jesus and the Holy Spirit becomes the wind beneath our “wings” we can view and experience all of life as we soar above the land of positivity. I know that does not change the circumstances pulling down on us, but what it does is overpower the forces of negative gravity and allows us to “soar on wings like eagles.” (Isaiah 40:31)
Has the land of negativity got a hold on you? If so, turn on your imaging (imagination) and feel the lifting winds of the Holy Spirit and join me in proclaiming there are only good, better, and best days!
“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” (John 14:6)
Grace and PEACE,
