I had a good conversation with a stranger recently at a convenience store. I commented on the lovely weather we were experiencing and they agreed saying, “This is a good day.” They continued by saying, “Even if the weather turns bad and the storms come like the weatherman says, it’s still a good day.” This led to a conversation with this person in which they shared about some of the storms and struggles they have encountered in life. They testified about the way God watched over them and helped them even in the midst of dark and difficult days. They said their favorite verse, the one that helped them keep going on during those times was Psalm 118:24.
Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
This person praised the Lord for the help and strength He provides to them every day – good days and bad days. It was a blessing to hear this person’s testimony. And it was good to be reminded that this is the day the Lord has given us and though storms may come, we can still rejoice and be glad that He is with us.
