End of Day
I can only imagine that when the farmer turns the last corner on the gravel road and this view of his property comes into sight, he is well pleased. He says to himself, "It's been a good day." How often do any of us arrive at home, after spending the daylight hours at work, running errands, or doing other tasks that are necessary, can pull into our place of residence and say, "It's been a good day." More importantly, regardless of our circumstances, can bow our heads and tell our Creator, "It's been a good day." We are not promised fame, fortune, or an easy life in this world. We are promised by the God of all Creation that He will meet our needs. We are promised that He loves us and, if we belong to Him, He will be with us in all of our circumstances. We may have to endure some hardships and life may not be a bed of roses, but He is faithful and our reward is not here. Our reward is spending an eternity in a place that He has prepared for us. When we focus on our relationship with Christ and His divine will for our lives, we can come into the evening hours and say, "It's been a good day."
