There are seven days in a week. Someday is not one of them.
Today…close the door to the past. Open the door to the future. Take a deep breath. Step on through and start a new chapter in your life.
“Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”Matthew 6:35 TPT
Be strong today, because things will get better. It may be stormy now, but it never rains forever. Eventually you’ll end up where you need to be, with who you’re meant to be with, and doing what you should be doing.
Awhile back I decided to hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection. Did you get that? Grace! Not Perfection. That one decision made ALL the difference in my days. It taught me that the journey through this life isn’t so much about becoming anything. Rather it’s more about unbecoming everything that isn’t really me. It freed me to be who I really am. With that one decision it became possible to be the woman God meant me to be in the first place.
Today consider this: It’s time for a new beginning! Let this day be the day where you start to live life praising God! When good things happen, you say, “Praise the Lord!” When bad things happen, you say, “Praise the Lord anyway!” Today, start to live life praising God. Find something good about your country and praise God for it. Find something good about your church and praise God for it. Find something good about your spouse or children and praise God for it!
When you start looking at good things, you will feel so blessed, so rich. Being rich is not a matter of having lots of money. Some people say, “If I have a million dollars, I’ll be rich and happy.” No, you can have a million dollars and still feel poor—always looking around and wondering, “Who will take this from me? How long will this amount of money last?”
So stop majoring on the negative or bad things in your life today. Don’t spend your time and energy constantly focused on what’s not right with your circumstances. Jesus said that the lamp of the body is the eye. When you keep focusing on what is evil in your life, your eye is bad, and your whole body will be full of darkness. But if you keep looking at the bright side—at His goodness, mercy and favor toward you—your eye is good, and your whole body will be full of light!
The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness…Matthew 6:22–23
Dear Heart, the truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, until you realize that the situation is over, you cannot walk in the light of God’s promises.
My prayer is that TODAY you will make the decision to walk in GRACE!
