Division of Things

When it comes to dividing things, three seems to be the common number of parts. For instance, man is made up of three parts: body, soul, and spirit.

There is a three-part comparison system such as good, better, best or long, longer, longest. When we write a book report, essay, speech or sermon there should also be three distinct parts:

  1. the introduction (where you tell people what you are going to tell them)
  2. the body (where you tell them)
  3. the conclusion (where you tell them what you have told them).

It is no different with each day.

Each day is divided into three parts:

  1. morning
  2. noon
  3. night

In order to get the fullest enjoyment out of the day, make sure you parallel it to the introduction, the body and the conclusion.

Begin to use this concept each day and surely you will be convinced that every day is a day to rejoice and be glad in it.

This Is the Day

According to Psalm 119:24, "This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it" We might consider paydays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and other occasions are special, but every day is a special day to God. That's because He made it and everything in it.

God made the day for us, and we should honor the day by getting the most out of it. God expects us to receive two things out of each day: joy and gladness. God wants us to experience joy and be glad in each day He has made, and He made all of our days.

We are to rejoice no matter what is going on around us. We are to be glad in it even though we don't understand all that happening to and for us. When we rejoice and be glad in each day, we let God know that we are thankful for the day lHe has laid out for us no matter what it may bring.

Introduction of Your Day

The INTRODUCTION of any day should come early when you have your morning devotions. That might include reading the scriptures, praying, and praising God for a good night's sleep and waking you up.

This is also the time to set goals for the day, including commanding the day for what you want to accomplish with God's help.

Body or Main Part of Your Day

You should spend most of the day doing those things God would have you to do during the BODY of the day.

If you have a job, you will be there at least eight hours in addition to time traveling to and from your place of employment. You will attend to other duties which might include raising a family, managing a household, attending meetings, shopping, and doing a multitude of other things. Needless to say, this part of the day is when you will get more things done.

Conclusion of Your Day

At the CONCLUSION of the day, think back and reflect on those things you did to give glory to God.

Keep a gratitude journal to write down those things that happened that you are thankful for.

If any of your days do not have an INTRODUCTION, BODY, or CONCLUSION, then days are not well spent.

Thanks, Louise, for reading and offering your input. I am like you. I divide my day.

I agree. My days generally do have an introduction, body and conclusion. But I know what my day is going to be most days, which is the way I like it.
