Today is Friday, and all over the country this morning people forced themselves out of bed by saying, “T.G.I.F.—thank God it’s Friday!” But today I’m saying,

T.G.I.T.—Thank God It’s Today!

I did a quick search in my Bible concordance. Check out the number of times these words appear in Scripture:

Today—203                Tomorrow—56
Now—1186                 Later—83

Clearly today is the day, and now is the time. So T.G.I.T.—Thank God It’s Today!

Natalie Grant has a great song “What Are You Waiting For” (lyrics here). The chorus in her song captures the essence of T.G.I.T.

So you wanna change the world
What are you waiting for
You say you’re gonna start right now
What are you waiting for
It only takes one voice
So come on now and shout it out
Give a little more
What are you waiting for

In the Old Testament Moses wrote a song about T.G.I.T. too. It’s in Psalm 90—

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands. (Psalm 90:12, 14, 17)

Don’t make today just T.G.I.F., make today and everyday T.G.I.T.—Thank God It’s Today! Do something memorable today … do something life-altering today … do something for God TODAY and He will establish the work of your hands.

Make today a great today! T.G.I.T.!
