God’s Love Each Day

Every day is a gift from God
There’s much to be thankful for
If we open our eyes and our hearts
We’ll see life as something to adore

Each morning when we wake up
Thanking God should come to mind
He has blessed us with a new day
And we have new treasures to find

What a precious jewel each day is
A new day to soak in Jesus’s love
Every day can bring us peace and joy
If we keep our eyes on things above

God’s love is overwhelming
We thank Him for this new day
Eager to see what the day will hold
We seek Him every step of the way

In my last post, I mentioned that during the month of November I will be holding a gratitude challenge. A fellow blogger, DarylMadden, commented on that post, sharing a YouTube video. (If you enjoy poetry, then I highly recommend Daryl Madden’s blog!) I wanted to share the YouTube video with you, as well. So please take a few moments to watch it. It is so beautiful. I want to live every day of my life with this mindset. Here is the link to the video: A Grateful Day with Brother David Steindl-Rast.

  1. I really like this Bridget That third verse just stood out to me. Each day is an opportunity to soak in His love. And experience His peace and joy if we keep our eyes on things above.
    Blessings to you my friend.

    • Thank you! I am so glad you enjoyed it! Sometimes I feel like life is a tug of war. Problems and despair pull us one way. But God is on the other side beckoning us to turn to Him and fully embrace His love. If we could just remember that and hold onto that, I think we would have a much more joyous and peaceful life. Blessings to you too, dear friend! ❤️

    • Sometimes we forget that God has blessings waiting for us each day. He is a loving Father who is always eager to be good to us, because His very nature is good. Thank you for your comment! Blessings!

    • Thank you, Michelle! I am glad you enjoyed them! I have listened to the YouTube video several times now. I wish I could hold that good feeling tightly in my hand. It’s like when I am listening to praise music. It makes me feel so inspired, blessed, loved, and in awe. I think to myself that I wish I could hang onto those feelings all the time. I believe they are always there for us to grab hold of, but we just have to remember that. God bless you, my friend! ❤️
