Every new day is a blessing from God. Each day that comes brings with it new opportunities to grow, to experience God’s goodness, and to become more like Jesus through God’s grace. Aren’t you happy you’re alive today?

With each morning we wake up, we’re presented with opportunities to decide on what we are going to do. Shall we face the day with excitement knowing that God made it, or shall we face the day with sadness, knowing that yesterday’s fun is over? Do we look forward to making our day count by doing what pleases God, or do we live worried about the bad things that might happen at any moment?

I pray that we choose to honor God with every waking moment. To help you start your day powerfully in God, here are some Bible verses you should read and meditate on.
