Daily Walk 365 – Day 6

August 30th, 2008 1 comment

This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. — Psalm 118:24 (NKJV)

And this from Phillip Yancey:

Some of us seem so anxious about avoiding hell that we forget to celebrate our journey toward heaven.

I love that song.  Especially the SKA version I heard about 8 years ago.  The racous music and rough singing was at contrast to the lyrics, but that was what made it unique.  As is each day we live in the Lord, each uniquely made for us to enjoy, and be glad for.

Daily Walk 365 – Day 4

August 28th, 2008 Comments off

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. — 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV)

Lists are good things.  We try to make list for our days, little bits of routine to make our lives work.  Hints to remind ourselves, and sometimes our children, to do each day to make our lives easier.  Here Paul gives an ‘everyday’ list, the type of thing you put at the top of your Outlook calendar, when you check the ‘All Day Event’ box.  Then at the top of each day you’ll see:

  • Rejoice
  • Pray
  • Give Thanks

Can it get any easier?  How come it seems so hard?
