Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why we call it present. A. A. Milne

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. James 1:17

I believe her story: “9 Ways to Start Your Day Right” is well worth reading.

Each day is a gift from God. It is a moment in time that has never come before and never will come again. What we do in our day, how we act, and how we react to situations and to people,… Danni White

I loved Mike’s short article: “Gifts from God”

While we wait, let’s focus on who He is. This will help us find and keep joy in our relationship with God. Mike Bertelsen

Today’s story is about how each day is a blessing and a gift bestowed on you by God.

May you be blessed and touched by the Love of God in this story.

Each new morning is a miracle to behold. Each new morning may be heralded by sunrise of many colours. Each new morning brings gifts from God to be shared and acknowledged. Step into each new day with wonder and awe.

How do you show God how blessed you are? You show true thankfulness for each blessing as it happens throughout your day. You reach out with tenderness and compassion to those you meet along the way. You share the gifts and talents God has so generously blessed upon you. You share them with the world.

When you view each new day as a blessing and a gift from God life will change for you. It does for me.

When I see each day as a miracle I don’t waste a second of it. I use it as if God Himself is watching. As indeed He is. He is watching with love. God is eager to see what I accomplish with His miracle. On this day. Each moment is used to bring His love into the world.

With these stories on Medium. I am oh! so aware of what words I use. I go over each draft many times before I press the button “Publish.” After all, I am writing about the Love of God. I do not want to lead anyone astray. This is so rewarding. Yet, at the same time so challenging.

I start each day with a few words of thanks to our Heavenly Father. This simple prayer of gratitude puts the day into focus for me. It reminds me once again that the day is a gift from God. I must use it wisely and with love.

Once all my daily chores are over and done I turn on my laptop. Open Google search and choose a topic from God’s Word to study and meditate on throughout the day. I try not let anything to distract me, easier said than done though. Then I spend at least 30 minutes of my precious time in the beautiful and Holy presence of God my Heavenly Father.

Then I feel refreshed and ready for the rest of my day.

When you form a prayer routine of gratitude as you awake each morning. All worries and cares take second place. Just a few simple words, thanking God for sleep, those you love and who love you and your home. These are enough. More if you feel inspired.

By finding time each day to study and meditate on God’s Word. Your love for Him grows and deepens within your heart and spirit. Take time and effort to memorize a Bible verse here and there allowing God to speak to you.

Throughout your new day, these remembered Biblical treasures speak to you of His love and glory.

When you step outside to be greeted by a sunrise of colours, that I could only try to replicate on canvas. You remember Bible verses on how a rainbow is the Old Testament’s covenant between God and His chosen people and all He created.

When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth. Genesis 9:16

When you walk through your garden you remember Bible verses on how God is the Father of all Creation and nature.

How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. Psalm 104:24

Another way to see each day as a blessing. As a gift from God. Is to see it as a new adventure.

Oh! God my Heavenly Father, I don’t know where this adventure is taking me. But I am following your lead. In Jesus’ Name. Amen. Me!

Then I try my very best to do this. Not easy for me. I am the type who likes to do things My Way, (as the lyrics go). Doing it my way things at times get a little messy.

If you listen to God’s still, small voice. Seek His guidance in this new day. Your day of adventure will unwrap clearly for you.

When I first decided to join Medium.com I never thought in a million years what an exhilaration this experience each day would provide for me. Now I am sharing the love of God with the world.

What wonders, miracles and joy are waiting for you? Just learn to let God take the lead. Let God show you today what you are to do to share His love. Your purpose in this world is to Serve God the Father by serving other people.

This day will bring opportunities to do just this. Just be open to each and every one of these opportunities.

Whether it be preparing your young children for their new day. Remember they too are loved by God and are His beloved Creation. Everything you do for them, do with the love of a mother. As God the Father loves you!

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalm 127:3

Each day is a rich and precious gift from God. With new grace and opportunities.

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

An attitude of gratitude throughout your day makes all the difference. It changes the way you see things. Maybe the greatest gift of them all is life itself. The pure blessing of being alive. To Praise and Worship God for this day that He has given you.

If you are honoured to have the unconditional love of a dog. Take a moment to see the love she has for you in her beautiful deep brown eyes. Her deep appreciation and gratitude for being alive. In this small part of your day, she is an example of how you are to love and be thankful to God the Father.

I hope and pray that this story has shown you that in your day you need to be completely aware of God. God, Himself places people and experiences on your path intentionally. Everything in your life has a divine plan and meaning. God has a perfect plan for your life. Each day is a step in this plan.

In every part of your new day please pause. Pause and find time to pray a simple few words of love and thankfulness. To God the Father in the Holy Name of Jesus His Son.

Thank You for today, all of its blessings and Your love, Heavenly Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

God loves you and always will!
