Yesterday is gone, Today is a precious present from God, and tomorrow remains an unknown mystery. When we stand with one foot in yesterday and one in tomorrow we straddle a picket fence, teetering over today, yet missing the present. We can’t turn back the clock and relive our incredible yesterdays, or change our painful yesterdays. We can only learn from the pain, thank God for the incredible, and live with Him in our todays, seeking His will, and being ever thankful for His present.
Yesterday I stumbled and fell. Today Christ’s has lifted me up.
Yesterday I hurt another. Today I can only seek their forgiveness and that of Christ.
Yesterday another hurt me. Today I choose to forgive them with the love of Christ and seek His tender embrace as I cry.
Yesterday I made so many mistakes that surely God could never love me. Today I am His beloved child, who He loves with all His heart.
Many yesterdays ago God loved us so much that He gave His precious Son to die for us.
Many yesterdays ago Jesus hung upon a cross wearing my crown and carrying my sins.
Many yesterdays ago Jesus died upon that cross and was buried in a borrowed tomb.
Many yesterdays ago Jesus the Christ rose from the dead so that we may live.
Today, I am saved by His Grace.
Today, I am forgiven by His blood.
Today, I am Alive through His love.
Today, I praise Him.
Today, Tomorrow, For Always, I will live with Him for all of eternity.
And one glorious day, Christ will return for His Church. For you and I.
