And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

2 Corinthians 9:8

How do you view each new day?

How do you view each new day?  Do you see it as a gift?  You say, “How can I, don’t you see the load I must carry?”  Well, what are you focusing on—the load or the Lord?  When you focus on the load, it becomes heavier and heavier.  But if you will choose to focus on the Lord and find joy in His plan for you, He will enable you to carry your heavy load.  In fact, He will even carry it for you if you will let Him!  His word tells us to cast our burdens and cares upon Him, and He will sustain us because He cares for us.  Let Him help you carry your load, and then look for opportunities to help lighten someone else’s load.  You will have the strength for this only as you find your joy in the Lord and in His plan for you.  Look at tomorrow, and every day, as a gift, and with a thankful, joyful heart, let God strengthen you for the tasks ahead.  “The Joy of the Lord is your strength.”  Neh. 8:10
