Rejoice and be glad!

"Today is the day the LORD has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!"- Psalm 118:24

I love reading this verse on one of those mornings that the sun peaks through my shades at just the right angle to wake me from the best dream I've had all week. I'm sure everyone loves to read that verse on the beautiful mornings! But, what about the mornings when you're tired? What about the mornings after a long night? What about the mornings with no sun in the sky, instead gray clouds? 

This Psalm does not say "Today is the day the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it only if it meets our standard of beauty!" or "Only if I feel like rejoicing in it!" This Psalm says, "Let us rejoice and be glad in it!" Period. So today... when you feel like screaming, when you feel like you've lost, when the weather gets to you... REJOICE and BE glad! Because THIS is the day the Lord has made! 

"And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm"
