God Bless the Day

31 Aug

Before my feet hit the floor, before the day becomes crowded by its noise, I want stop and ask God to Bless the Day. This thought and words are from Charles Billingsley who I believe is one of the greatest praise and worship leaders of all time. It is so true that we can get up and begin our day without asking God this or even acknowledging Him at all. We often times hit the snooze button time again and again and before we know it we are late and have to rush through just getting to work on time,

I have tried to make for it a point for many years to be an early riser and to give myself more than enough time to get ready for the day and have time alone with my Father. Its not always easy to do because I also want to snooze a little longer each time the alarm goes off but I have found that getting up allows me time ALONE when no one else is up and there is no noise except the sound of the clock ticking and the sound of the refrigerators hum……………………………….Peace and stillness abides,and I can truly find the still voice of God my Father.

What the writer is saying in the song Bless The Day however is that even before my feet hit the ground I should awaken and say Thank You God for this day and Bless it. Without exception God has given us a new day today no matter what we struggled with yesterday and what we may struggle with today it is a day to be grateful for. God himself has breathed His very breath into you this day and without that we die. He has given us this day and we should rejoice and praise Him for it.

On my face book page today I found this entry by Robin Farmer Davis ‎”I’ve never met a bitter person who was thankful. Or a thankful person who was bitter. ” how true. How often have you come across someone that was difficult to be around and you either asked them or thought to yourself that they must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed that day. I would say that they forgot to acknowledge the creator and give thanks to Him for the day before they put a foot on the floor.

Habits are hard to establish even breaking bad ones but I know that if I make myself do this each day I become a happier person and more thankful to my Father for all He has done for me in my life. It has been said that we have to do something for 21 days in order for it to become a habit Try going to bed at night and thanking God for the day that has past and tell Him that when He wakes you up in the morning that you want to before your feet hit the floor to thank Him for the day. Do this for 21 days and see if you don’t become happier and less stressed. The more we praise God for His Blessings the easier it is to see them and realize them as they come into our life, the simplest of them is waking up to a new day.
