Daily D – Psalm 113:3
From the rising of the sun to its setting, let the name of the LORD be praised.
PSALM 113:3 (CSB)
Sunrise and sunset are closer together now. The sun dipped below the horizon last night at 7:21. As one who enjoys days filled with more sunlight than darkness, this made me a little sad. It is dark now a few minutes after six o’clock in the morning.
We can fill this day with praise to God and overflow into dusk and dark. If we begin with his attributes, his distinguishing characteristics, and finish with how we experience his goodness and grace, no amount of daylight will be enough.
When the sun goes down and the moon and stars illuminate the heavens above, we can sing songs in the night. Psalm 42:8 says,
The LORD will send his faithful love by day;
his song will be with me in the night—
a prayer to the God of my life.
Praise God all day. Pray yourself to sleep at night. That’s a pretty good day, don’t you think?
Start well with praise and thanksgiving. Ponder God’s goodness throughout the moments, the minutes, and the hours before you. Wrap it all up with thanksgiving and praise as you lie down and lay down your concerns and cares at bedtime.
How will you experience God today? Take notes along the way. Then you will always have something to say as you remember God’s goodness in this day.
I will live this day with praise and thanksgiving from sunup to sundown to peaceful slumber.
Our Father, open my eyes that I may see your goodness and grace today. I choose to live in awe and wonder, expressing your praise, thanking you for every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Psalm 143:8-10 Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Rescue me from my enemies, Lord; I run to you to hide me. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.

Daily D – Ezra 3:11-13
Ezra 3:11-13 With praise and thanks, they sang this song to the Lord: “He is so good! His faithful love for Israel endures forever!” Then all the people gave a great shout, praising the Lord because the foundation of the Lord’s Temple had been laid. But many of the older priests, Levites, and other leaders who had seen the first Temple wept aloud when they saw the new Temple’s foundation. The others, however, were shouting for joy. The joyful shouting and weeping mingled together in a loud noise that could be heard far in the distance.
Daily D – 2 Chronicles 35:22-25
2 Chronicles 35:22-25 After Josiah had finished restoring the Temple, King Neco of Egypt led his army up from Egypt to do battle at Carchemish on the Euphrates River, and Josiah and his army marched out to fight him. But King Neco sent messengers to Josiah with this message: “What do you want with me, king of Judah? I have no quarrel with you today! I am on my way to fight another nation, and God has told me to hurry! Do not interfere with God, who is with me, or he will destroy you.” But Josiah refused to listen to Neco, to whom God had indeed spoken, and he would not turn back. Instead, he disguised himself and led his army into battle on the plain of Megiddo. But the enemy archers hit King Josiah with their arrows and wounded him. He cried out to his men, “Take me from the battle, for I am badly wounded!”
