Morning Coffee with Jesus - November 19, 2009
Hello loved ones!
Today’s “Morning Coffee with Jesus” comes from Psalm 7:17. “I'm thanking God, who makes things right. I'm singing the fame of heaven-high God.” (The Message)
Have you ever experienced a day when everything went really, really right? Do you remember just how good it felt to have everything fall into place? Maybe “Morning Coffee with Jesus” put you in a good mood, you then enjoyed a great breakfast, followed with a bit of time laughing and talking with loved ones before heading off to the daily grind. Then, when you got to work there were no problems to contend with, no personalities trying to get in the way of you doing a good job, no complaints, no issues, no concerns. When you arrived home after a full day, the dog really did bring your slippers and newspaper, you heard your favorite song on the radio, your spouse greeted you with a warm hug and friendly smile, and your favorite food for dinner, and then you dropped off to sleep without having to count one sheep.
I have experienced great days like that but admittedly, they are rare. Nonetheless, when they occur it is important to thank God for them because a day like that is a testimony of God’s love that endures forever.
So what if only half of the good things above actually happened? Would it still be a great day? What if one quarter of those good things actually happened? Would it STILL be a great day? What if only one of the good things above actually happened? Would it STILL be a great day?
The next time something positive happens, write it on a post it note and stick it on the mirror in your bathroom or on your refrigerator. Soon you will begin to see a collection of post-it notes scattered throughout your house, and hopefully will recognize that a great day is not made up of a full day of monumental events, but instead, it is the “little things” which occur every day that we take for granted and never stop to say “Thank you” to God.
It’s easy to focus on the things around us we see going wrong. Sometimes it is important to take notice of and be thankful for those things that go right.
Have a blessed day in Jesus. Go MAD in someone’s life today!
