The Worst Day Ever (by Chanie Gorkin)
Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don’t try to convince me that
There’s something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.
And it’s not true that
It’s all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be attained
Only if one’s surroundings are good
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure you can agree that
It’s all beyond my control
And you’ll never in a million years hear me say
Today was a very good day
Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,
And see what I really feel about my day.
Since this is our truth, why should any day be a bad day?
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, we choose today to experience everything that happens to us through your eyes. Amen.
