A couple of years ago our young granddaughter, Greta, talked to me on the phone. As we were visiting, she asked, "How are you Gwandma Na?" I replied, "Well, Greta, I am good!" She became so excited she yelled at her dad, "Daddy, daddy, Gwandma Na is good!!"
"Gwandma Na" lives life mostly from her living room sanctuary, so, when Grandma told Greta that she was good~ Greta decided this was something to celebrate!
When this occurred, I began wonder how often my response is not "I am good." More often than I would like to admit, I let my circumstances or my symptoms dictate my day...good .....or bad..... when really, every day is good! Every day we open our eyes to the morning light is something to celebrate. I like to remember that every day is an opportunity for a miracle because God is in the center of it.
Psalm 118: 24 says, "This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!"
We cannot deny that there are times that are really tough, and it is hard to feel positive sometimes due to tragic or difficult circumstances. It is more than okay to be honest about where we find ourselves, but when we remember that God is with in us and with us, loves us, and will never leave us ~then like Greta we have reason to celebrate~ reason to say, "I am good".
I hope that each of you today find reason to say, "I am good!" If you need encouragement and inspiration visit Charlotte and Ginger at Spiritual Sundays.
