SPIRITUAL SATURDAY ~ It’s A Good Day ~ June 4, 2011 by Charles Betts


When I wake up each morning and I’m breathing on my own

I know that Jesus loves me and I’m not in this thing alone

It’s a good day

I say a little thank-you prayer and put my feet upon the floor

Get dressed, have my breakfast and head out my front door

It’s a good day

I jump in my old truck and if it starts up first thing

I turn on a gospel station and hear somebody sing

It’s a good day

It’s a good day for me just to know that I am whole

My hope is in His love and I’m aware in my own soul

That no matter what may happen, God is in control

By the time my day is over, someone will be told

Have a good day

As I head on down the road, I have purposed in my mind

As I interact with others, I’ll do my best to be kind

And make it a good day

We can never tell, unless they let us in their heart

Exactly what it is that may be tearing them apart

They need a good day

Everyone needs someone to show them God above

Through gentle acts of kindness or some small act of love

We can make their day

We can make their day more beautiful by what we say or do

Their grey and darkened skies can be turned to clear and blue

When their day is over, they’ll take time to thank God too

Their journey was less arduous because we helped them through

We made their day

If you aren’t having a good day, help someone else to
