Then I am reminded that it just is not true.
Here is a part of a note sent to several guys, one of which was me.
Most of us have had to live through the dark part of our lives, the time of failure, the nighttime of our lives, when we were full of struggle and care, worry and remorse, when we felt deeply the tragedy of life. But with our daily surrender to God, come a peace and joy that makes all things new. We can now take each day as a joyous sunrise-gift from God to use for Him and for other people. The night of the past is gone, this day is ours.
I pray that I may take this day as a gift from God. I pray that I may thank God for this day and be glad in it.
I can’t say that this is true for me every day, but it is my hope to experience this more and more as I surrender my hurts, habits, hangups and addictions to God, who can do for me what I cannot do for myself.
