I heard someone say, “We don’t have bad days. We have bad moments.” We must decide if we are going to let the bad moments ruin our entire day.
Yesterday, I had a few bad moments. Verbal disagreements. Lost my cool. Wanted to punch a couple of people in the face. Bad moments.
In the past, I would have allowed those moments to ruin my day; to overshadow the victory of seeing struggling students understand a difficult concept; to negate the satisfaction of helping my mentee ease the angst of a parent; to minimize the joy of catching up with old friends. But yesterday, I chose to see and embrace the good moments of my day which far outweighed the bad.
I had a couple of bad moments but I chose to have a good day.
The Bible declares God has made every day. It is our “present” from our Heavenly Father. King David encourages us to make the most of our “present” by choosing to rejoice and be glad in it. Choose to focus on the good that is happening around you. Choose to see what God is doing in the midst of the bad moments.
At the end of the day you can glorify the works of the enemy by declaring, “I had a bad day.”
Or you can celebrate the goodness of God by declaring, “Overall my day was good. I had a few bad moments but the goodness of God overwhelmed my day.”
“This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalms 118:24 NASBThank
