Better Day – Song Of The Week

How many times have you stressed out over a horrible day? How many times have you muttered under your breath, “I wish I could just wake up and start this day all over again”? How many times have you dealt with this person or that sickness or a bad day at work or not enough money for the bill that’s due now or….. I could go on. BUT those days don’t last. Not unless you let them. You can either wallow in self pity, or choose to get up and see that a better day’s coming.

Yes, it can get rough. Yes, it can be overwhelming. Yes, you probably just want to SCREAM!!!!!!!!! Believe me… I know all about it! But I’ve learned that you don’t have to give in to the stress. Just breathe. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. That’s it. Keep going. You’re doing great!

Now here’s a tip I learned from our very own Judye Jackson that you can use the next time you think you’re having a pretty rotten day and you feel like you’re going to lose it:

“Whenever I think I’m having a bad day, I remember that Jesus had a REALLY BAD day one Friday…”

It can become a little much at times, so I understand. But Jesus had the ultimate bad day. And thanks to Him, and through Him, we can overcome any bad day that comes our way!

 

Better Day

– Gaither Vocal Band
Could that view from your window be a little bit brighter?
Could that load you’ve been carrying feel a little bit lighter?

Well hold on, just hold on
That crayon sun’s got a smile on its face
Those clouds hangin‘ ’round no, they ain’t gonna stay
Keep your arms wide open ’cause it’s heading’ your way
Look, come yonder there’s a better day
Better day…better day…

Could those legs you’ve been walkin‘ on feel a little bit stronger?
Could that rain you‘ve been walking through not last much longer?

Well hold on, just hold on
Oh, that crayon sun’s got a smile on its face
Those clouds hangin‘ ’round, no they ain’t gonna stay
Keep your arms wide open ’cause it’s heading’ your way
Look, come yonder there’s a better day
Better day…better day…

Could those dreams you’ve been dreamin‘ find a few more believers?
Could that song you’ve been singin‘ be a little bit sweeter?

There’s gonna be a better day
There’s gonna be a better day

Good, Good News – Song Of The Week

Have you ever just grown weary of all the negative media? Sally the Celebrity just split from Bob the Rapper. A plane just crashed in So-n-so area of the world. The economy is bottoms up. Everywhere is bad news.

The great thing is, if we have Jesus, not only do we have good news, but we have the greatest news!! And if we aren’t sharing that news, we are not doing our job. Now get out there and spread the wonderful gospel of Jesus. Put on your dancin’ shoes cause you’ve got good, good news!

 

Good, Good News
by Gaither Vocal Band

I woke up Monday morning and I walked out on the lawn
My eyes were barely open and my mouth begin to yawn
Picked up the daily paper, every single headline said
That this whole world is full of trouble and I wished I’d stayed in bed
Sometimes the bad that’s goin’ on’s enough to bring you down

Turned on my television and began to flip on through
All one hundred channels, hbo and pay-per-view
Not one message had a meaning that was good in any ways
Just before I wrote the whole world off, I heard the father say
“don’t forget what I have promised, you can overcome it all”

I’ll spread this talk all over town ’bout the peace and joy I found in you
(good news, good, good news)
This story is about to break and blessed are the feet that take the truth
(good news, good, good news)
I’m slippin’ on my dancin’ shoes ’cause I’ve got good, good news

Well my knees began to shakin’ and my heart began to beat
And a funny new sensation worked its way into my feet
The spirit of glad tidings came from somewhere deep inside
And holdin’ back the flood was just like holdin’ back the tide
I couldn’t help but circulate to ev’ry one I know
