Regardless of what transpires in and throughout the day, I own it because I created it. The enemy doesn't own this day he can't, because I do. I created it, it is Mine.
My precious child, from the rising to the setting of the sun, I fashion all things in this day to bless you. Open your eyes and watch as the landscape changes. I enhance the picture with various hues of color throughout the day. It never remains the same, but the masterpiece constantly changes and transforms as I add special heavenly touches.
I fill your day with the sounds of heaven. Listen, for the songs of praise coming from the birds as they busily ready their nests to receive new life. Praise explodes from majestic rivers as they plunge over mountains of jagged rock. Open your ears to hear melodic sounds carried on invisible winds.
I made this day specifically for you to fill your heart with joy and abundant blessings. Even in the midst of dark and trying circumstances, My light always shines. There is no such thing as a good day or a bad day, but a day of grace. I’ve equipped and empowered you with everything you need to live out this day victoriously.

However, if you choose to fix your eyes on Me, you will see My light in every situation guiding you through to victory. Look for and seek out the beauty in this day. It is all around you because I placed it there for you to find. Rejoice and celebrate the wonder and magnificence of today.
