Chapter OneJANUARY 1
Start Your Day Right
When I said, My foot is slipping, Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, held
Some people seem to start their day on the "wrong foot." They feel all right
when they wake up, but as soon as something goes wrong, they lose their footing
and walk with a "loser's limp" the rest of the day. Once they are off to a bad
start, it seems they never catch up.
If someone offends us early in the morning, our anger can keep us defensive all
day. If we start the day rushing, it seems we never slow down. But today our
feet can be firmly planted in God's Word. There will be no "bad day" when God's
Word supports, strengthens, and directs us.
