Sunday Devotional With Mr. E: Today

Today is a great day to create. When you are happy you can share your joy through your art. Life's celebrations can be commemorated through creative endeavors.  Dreams can be captured. Memories can be recorded. When you are sad you can process your feelings through your work.  If you are confused you can use your art to help sort out what you are going through. If you are angry you can deal with your emotions in a more constructive manner. Art as a part of one's daily life can be incredibly beneficial in a vast array of ways.  

This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

So often believers think that they should have a "blessed" life because of their faith.  "Blessed" in the minds of many means free of trials, tribulations, burdens, and bereavement.  However, this is not the case! John 16:33 lets us know "In this world you will have trouble." We see in Psalm118:24 that "This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."  What day? THIS DAY! It might be your best day, or it might be your worst day. Life might be going great, or your world might feel like it is crashing in around you. No matter your situations & circumstances....today is a gift from the Lord.  It is in Him, through Him, and because of Him that we can rejoice no matter what life is "blessing" us with.  He is enough for today...and everyday.
