Today is not the same as yesterday–or, at least, it doesn’t have to be. We don’t have to carry the problems and negativity of yesterday, last week, or last year (or many years in the past) into our present or our future. We need to adopt this mindset:
I have been busy finishing up projects…so here’s your belated Friday inspiration that you can still think about today!
“All of us have made mistakes in our past–
not one of us is perfect.
But that doesn’t mean we have to repeat
those mistakes in the future.
You don’t have to suffer
from the same defeats of yesterday;
by the grace of God,
you can live differently today.
Your story can get better and better–
you can learn to live in God’s best.
You may not be where you want to be,
but thank God
you’re not where you used to be.”
–Joyce Meyer in “You Can Begin Again”
My favorite part of this quote is: “You may not be where you want to be, but thank God you’re not where you used to be!” Amen!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
