I was speaking with someone the other day and he said, "It was a bad day." My response was, "How do you evaluate a a good day from a bad day until you have examined all the days?"

Image from here.
Our present circumstances or situations are a poor barometer to gauge what is good and what is bad. When we view each day as another step in the journey of our ultimate destination, life becomes manageable. We have no need to vascilate and struggle with each step of the workings of life. We need to learn to enjoy the moment. Life should be an adventure of excitement and amazement. We may not know what tomorrow holds, but we do need to be confident about Who holds tomorrow. Life is not ours to own; it is ours to enjoy. With all the twists and turns, the high and lows, the switch-backs, the stops and speeds, the bumps and dips, we might as well see this as an amusement ride through life.

The Real Life lives in us and is not about us. When we strive for inner peace, hope, and faith; when the spirit of forgiveness and grace maneuvers through our lives; we then see each moment as God planned. He really does have a plan for your life. His plan involves you having a hope and a future of peace. So much of our present crisis is based on our reaction to a problem, not our responding to an opportunity.

Today is the best day of the rest of your life. Live it to the fullest. Love it to the highest. Pursue it with a passion.

Humbly loving you,

Bishop Gabe
