We’ve all heard various ideas about managing our lives. When you break it all down, things can get lumped into these three categories.
Yesterday is long gone. There are only three things we can do about yesterday.
- First, learn the lessons whether good or bad. Take an HONEST assessment of what happened and try to understand why. But do not let this become a new vocation.
- Next, let it go. There is nothing you can do about yesterday’s outcome.
- Build a marker for the ways you saw God active in the events of yesterday. These markers can be physical or mental, but keep track of what God seems to have done.
Tomorrow will come. Let it come on its own. There is nothing you can do to change the actual events of the day tomorrow. Oh you might plan and strive, but ultimately, things will turn out all on their own tomorrow.
Today is the only real time you can do something about. Live today as if it were your last. I don’t mean live frivolously. I mean make a difference today. Do the things that enrich your family, friends, and neighbors. Today is not about YOU. Today is a gift from God. Accept this precious gift and live to the full!
