Think about how you often begin your day tired, worried about all you have to do and resentful of the things you have to do that you don’t want to do. How do these days turn out? You usually get exactly what you expect, and that’s not good. Imagine beginning your day by thanking God for the gift of life, the gift of Jesus’ love, and the gift of being able to spend the day loving God and neighbor. How do you think this kind of day will turn out? You probably will experience more healing, joy and hope in the most unexpected ways than you can begin to imagine, and that’s exactly what God wants.
