Sometimes words cannot express one's sense of how wonderful God is. Sometimes music comes closer, but sometimes even music is insufficient. What a glorious day it is to be graced with this extra sense of the knowledge of God. I know it may be fleeting. Today the condition of my heart allows me to draw nearer, but I know that I am not always very good at keeping it that way. I wonder sometimes if a "really good heart day" is something God gives as a blessing through grace, and not something we can necessarily affect. I think maybe I can do my best to keep my heart clean and ready so that I don't miss out on those days that God allows me to see his glory, and do my best to be obedient and pleasing, but I know my own efforts will always fall short. The most awesome aspect of this, in my humble opinion, is that I know there is no particular reason that today I am able to stand in awe of God. He has not done anything tangible, necessarily, or anything he does not always do. I have not heard any great news or been given any great material thing, just a better sense of the joy of the Lord.
This is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it!
