Day 28: The Perfect Day

You take the TEST.

The results are POSITIVE.

You are GOOD to go.

The next morning

you take the TEST.

The results are NEGATIVE.

You are NOT SO GOOD to go.

What if there was a TEST that

revealed whether you were

GOOD enough


NOT SO GOOD enough?

Oh a GOOD enough result would put a pep in your step.

A NOT GOOD enough result would either make you wallow

or strive harder to achieve the POSITIVE result.

So you decide to stop taking

the TEST

because you are tired of

striving to pass the TEST,

and instead you look up

And there HE IS ~

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with ME and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with ME and work with ME~watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with ME and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly” (Matthew 11:28-30).

Could it be that easy,

because it sounds way


But you


anyway and experience

POSITIVE results even in the midst of the NEGATIVE


it is not your doing or being

as it becomes about

HIS doing and being in your life

that gives you a POSITIVE reading every time

even in the

not so GOOD enough moments


HE FORGIVES the unforgivable

HE FAVORS the unfavored

HE FREES us all from

the striving to measure up

in a world where the standards are always changing.

You take the TEST.

And it is always POSITIVE

because you are yoked to the

ONE who is


"Get out of bed and get dressed! Don’t loiter and linger, waiting until the very last minute. Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about!" (Romans 13:14)

Today is going to be



"Every morning, mercy's new.

Every morning, every morning

I will fix my eyes on YOU"

(from the song "DAY ONE", listen below)
