A Comedy of Errors

Have you ever had one of those days where everything seemed to go wrong? If so, you understand how I felt yesterday. I'll just give you a brief rundown.
The program that I've been working on for months and months has a bug. This bug is a big one. In fact the programming guy said it was what his nightmares were made of, which means this bug means no fun for me. Pretty much it was showing that it had saved things when in reality it hadn't, and it didn't show up until we were ready to upload it to the partner software, which we tried to do yesterday. I honestly felt like crying, but all I could do was just laugh. After all, crying wasn't going to change the fact that I've got to redo the stuff.
So that was work, then I got home. I made some Oodles of Noodles, when I went to strain the water of of them, my hand slipped and the entire pot of noodles spilled into the sink. So I made a second pot. Everything went okay with that one except I burned myself when I drained the water. Oh, and while the second pot was still cooking my mom was like, "you need to wash that pot you used." I was still using it!!!
There were other things that happened that made me start looking up to see if something was about to fall on my head or something, but finally I realized that having a bad attitude about the day wouldn't change anything that had happened. The only thing that I could change was me. So that's what I decided to do.
See, even though I couldn't change the events of the day, one thing was certain. Yesterday was a day that God made. God was still in control even though everything I did seemed cursed.
Check out Psalm 118:24, "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. "
No matter what happens, God is in control. He allowed the sun to rise this morning. This is the day that the Lord has made. Yesterday was a day the Lord made.
So regardless of what today brings and in spite of the craziness of yesterday, I have reason to rejoice. I serve the Lord who makes the day. I serve the Lord who makes the night. The God of all creation holds me in His hands. I have no reason to fear!
So I leave you today with Philippians 4:4, "Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice."

Isn't it nice that God gives us a new beginning everyday, and that the days only last 24 hours?
