Its been a long while! There’s been so much silence. I must say its for a good comeback. Its better to be made in secret and then manifest in the physical. I have a lot I’ld love to share today, but I have a nudge to encourage someone who’s going through a challenging phase. I hope you feel better after reading this….
We all have routines. Get up in the morning, say our prayers, bath and dress up, turn on the news, or read the newspaper, and then start the rest of the day. It would be wonderful if the morning information had a lot of good news, something that leaves us with good and hopeful feelings as we venture out into our day, but I can’t say that I see it often. There are two days in every week about which we should not worry. Two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. Yesterday is gone!!
The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow, with its possible adversities, its challenges, and its large promise. We can only plan ahead for tomorrow, plant and expect our harvests. Tomorrow’s sun will rise, whether in splendor or behind a mask of clouds. But it will rise. Until it does we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.
This leaves only one day: Today. Any man can fight the battles of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of two eternities – yesterday and tomorrow, that we break down. It is not necessarily the experience of today that disturbs our peace of mind. It is often time the bitterness for something which happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring. We cannot undo a single act we performed. We cannot erase a single word we said. All we can do is apologize for yesterday’s wrongs. Let us therefore live one day at a time while ‘planning’ not ‘worrying’ about tomorrow. Instead of worrying about what tomorrow holds, we must learn from the mistakes of yesterday and live a better today.
Be the best, be at your best! Decide to read or listen to positive messages each morning before your day begins? Reprogram your mind to move past the negative and focus on the great possibilities life has to offer. After all, you have nothing to lose except some negativity! Tomorrow holds better things. Don’t pray and then worry. You cannot answer your prayers yourself. Be encouraged! Be inspired!
Enjoy the rest of your week.
