Day By Day is an album by gospel singer Yolanda Adams. The single "Victory" was featured in the movie The Gospel. The single "Be Blessed" won a Grammy award for Best Gospel Performance. "Someone Watching Over You" was also released as a single, and a music video was released for "This Too Shall Pass" (a song originally recorded as a duet with Crystal Lewis on the 1996 compilation album Sisters: The Story Goes On).

Yolanda says of the title of her album in an interview, "I let my listener know that it's a process. That once you decide, 'Look, God I want you to lead my life, I want you to... take me through the hard stuff..." it doesn't just start automatically. And you don't just leap like Superman to the next spiritual level. It doesn't work like that. It's a day by day journey."[2]
