This song is an encouragement to remember Jesus’ practical instructions on how to live daily life. Because when we actually do it like Jesus tells us to, our lives go so much better. Just one way we can be “doers of the word, and not hearers only” (James 1:22).
See the Scripture passages below that are the basis for this song.
Each Day Stands Alone by Gail Bayless CHORUS: Each day stands alone Seek the grace of Jesus For our needs today. There's enough trouble In any one day Let us live our lives in Today. We're to turn our energies out of tomorrow Out of things that might never be We're to live in mercy and grace from Jesus For our current reality. CHORUS The mercy and grace that we need in our troubles Doesn't simply appear on the way. We're to come to the throne of grace to find it And for our daily bread we're to pray.

[Jesus teaching:] After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:9-11
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
…ye have not, because ye ask not. James 4:2
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22
