You may hate the weather today, be in a horrible mood, mess up royally, be hurt deeply, regret how you treated someone or any of a thousand other things. So it’s no surprise when you do your best to try forget today as quickly as possible. But guess what? Today is a gift from God. Of course, there will be challenges, struggles and painful moments. Maybe even more than you possibly think you can handle. But today is God’s gift to you because God is with you every single moment, beckoning you to experience God’s love more and more deeply, inviting you to enter into a deeper relationship with God, helping you to grow in generosity, compassion and humility, and challenging you to find more ways to share God’s love with others. Yes, today is a gift from God. And that means you have every reason to rejoice in it.
