Much of your joy in life depends on how you approach it.
Some people see every day as a trial to endure. Some see each day as mundane chore. But did you ever look at a day as an unopened gift from the Lord? That is the best way to approach a day. You don’t know what’s inside. You do know that whatever happens to a child of God passes through the providential care of a loving Heavenly Father who knows just what you need. Some days he has arranged a test or trial to strengthen us or deepen our faith. Almost every day he arranges a thousand delights for those who a spiritually sensitive enough to notice them.
So look around a little today and tear into the day like a beautifully wrapped gift. You never know what you might find inside.
