How easy it is to be bogged down by the regrets of yesterday, and to be immobilized by the uncertainties of tomorrow. We often go through the day alternating between "Why did that have to happen yesterday?" and "What if I can't handle what may happen tomorrow?" Neither your regrets nor your fears have anything to do with what really matters the remaining hours of this day. Each day has enough trouble of its own, Jesus said. No point in worrying about tomorrow when today's plate is already full. What matters above all else is the desire to seek first God’s kingdom (the church) and His righteousness (Matthew 6:25-33).
Remember yesterday, today, and tomorrow's plate is linked to God's mercy. It comes new every morning, washing out the remnants of the past, offering strength for today and hope for tomorrow (Romans 12:1-2). Decide today that you will give no weight to what's already gone and that you will spend no emotional energy on what is yet to arrive. Concentrate on doing your best to please the Lord today (2 Corinthians 5:9). Philippians 3:13-14 gives us God’s advice for moving forward with faith steps - …Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
