Enjoy Ordinary Days
From the book Starting Your Day Right – by Joyce Meyer
Our days in the kingdom of God are like seeds scattered upon the ground. We must continue to sleep and rise, night and day, while the seeds that we sow through our words and deeds sprout and grow and increase (see Mark 4:26–28).
Most days are not full of excitement, and some days are more difficult to endure than others. But we can learn to enjoy the ordinary and the challeng¬ing days of our lives. As the earth first produces the blade, then the ear, and finally the full grain in the ear, so will our lives produce a great harvest from our faithfulness in sowing righteousness.
Continue to do what you know is right to do and enjoy this ordinary day. You are one day closer to a joyful harvest.
Prayer Starter: Father, help me to enjoy ordinary days as much as the exciting ones, knowing that every day is a good day with You. Amen.
