The Dr. Seuss Quote for Today . . . Today Was Good . . .

The Dr. Seuss Quote for today . . . "Today was good! Today was fun! Tomorrow is another one!" If we are people who have experienced God's incredible love and grace, then we have something to celebrate each and every day! Psalm 118:24 says, "This day belongs to the Lord! Let's celebrate and be glad today!" We can celebrate because our days do belong to the Lord!

Some of our days are filled with good things, good times and good experiences . . . it is easy to celebrate and be glad on those kinds of days!  Some of our days are sad, difficult and trying . . . it can be difficult to celebrate on those kinds of days. On the difficult to celebrate kinds of days, remember Romans 8:28, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." While we may not be able to see beyond the pain of today, God has a plan (as we've saw the past two days) and He knows how in the end, all things will work together for good!

Be sure to point these things out to the children in your ministry, too! Talk with them about how we can celebrate because this day - both the good in it and the bad - belong to the Lord! God is working all things for our good and we can celebrate and be glad today! Help them make day-brightener cards and then as they leave your class, ask them to find two people on their way out of the church who they can give their cards to just to "brighten" their day! Be sure to take a moment to pray for each child by name - "Thank You God for working all things in _____'s life for good! Please help him/her celebrate today because he/she knows this day belongs to You!"
