Today I'm reading Psalm 118, especially verse 24: 

The Lord has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.

I really like today's reading in the devotional book "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young. She writes as though God were the one speaking:

"Try to view each day as an adventure, carefully planned out by our Guide. Instead of staring into the day that is ahead of you, attempt ion to program it according to your will, be attentive to Me and to all I have prepared for you. Thank Me for this day of life, recognizing that it is a precious, unrepeatable gift. Trust that I am with you each moment, whether you sense My Presence or not. A thankful, trusting attitude helps you to see events in your life from My perspective.

A life lived close to Me will never be dull or predictable. Expect each day to contain surprises! Resist your tendency to search for the easiest route though the day. Be willing to follow wherever I lead. No matter how steep or treacherous the path before you, the safest place to be is by My side."

Be attentive. Be aware of what God is doing. Be open to things he may bring your way. An unexpected visitor. A phone call. Bumping into someone at the store. All of these (and many others) could be divine opportunities. Be willing to give them the time required even with your busy schedule. 

Enjoy your adventure today.
