“I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart
I will enter his courts with praise
I will say this is the day that the Lord has made
I will rejoice for he hath made me glad”
I wanted to take a moment to rejoice for this very reason. I see that He hath made me glad in two different senses of the word “made”.
1) Created. God created me as a person who will live through life with a glad attitude. Whether is has to do with an abundance of certain chemicals in my body, or certain hormones, whatever, God was the one that created me that way. I have Him to thank for having a “glad” nature.
2) Caused me to be. God is constantly causing me to be glad. He is always affecting my life in a way that brings me joy. From grace, to a father/son relationship, to looking over my shoulder and helping me along the way, He didn’t leave me after He created me. He still causes me to be glad on a daily basis.
I will rejoice!
