Have a Good Day!

 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! Psalm 107:1 (NKJV)

The other day, as I walked toward the exit of our local bank, I heard a woman’s voice coming from one of the desks located near the front door. “Have a good day!” she called out. 

I turned and gave her a smile of appreciation. 

Even though it was a comment I had heard hundreds of times from numerous people, a new thought came to mind, “I need to receive what was just spoken to me.” Before I took another step I prayed this brief prayer, “Lord, I receive this day as a good day because You are good and I have You.” 

The prayer was a heart reminder of what it means to have a good day. A good day is not tied to good circumstances, but to a good person. It is tied to the character and nature of God. What does a good day look like for each of us? A good day is the presence of the Lord in our lives. To put it simply, “Jesus is our good day!”
