One morning I paused, breathing in the rays of sunshine that filtered their way through the blinds as if inhaling would capture the radiant essence of their brilliance. Today was a new day full of positive energy and potential. Already the list of items on the day’s agenda were flooding through my mind an ever beckoning reminder of the ticking of the clock. In that moment I felt a lingering thought of yesterday and the chaotic madness that had erupted. In the quiet of the morning I felt a deafening silence as for a brief moment the pendulum between yesterday and today stood still, waiting to see if I would allow yesterday to spill over into today.
Each today brings with it a remembrance of yesterday. How we address that remembrance makes the difference between what was yesterday and what will be today. Yesterday is not today and it’s up to us to see the difference. We can allow the pains and struggles of our yesterday’s to become the weights that hold us down or we can leave them in the past allowing God to provide us with wings to reach new heights today. His forgiveness covers the past of our yesterday’s and His grace gives us new hope for today.
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching unto those things which are before” Philippians 3:13
As you greet today remember . . . Yesterday is not today !!!
