Yesterday / Today / Tomorrow
Each of us live in these three days almost constantly. The next three blogs will address each of the three. Peace, joy, love and productivity depend on how we handle these 3 days. Let’s take a look at YESTERDAY through the filter of TODAY.
YESTERDAY can be a friend if TODAY I:
Choose to apply the wisdom gained from yesterday’s positive and negative experiences
Choose to forgive those who harmed me yesterday & reject a desire to be a victim
Choose to remember the blessings God gave me yesterday and give thanks
Choose to remember that Jesus died yesterday for my screw ups, shame, sin, and guilt.
How to choose : Join the “Second Thought Club.” It is human nature when a situation occurs to have my first thought: “I’m the victim here;” “I failed again;” “Why do things always happen to me?” or “I will just have a quick look at pornography.” It has taken a lot of practice for me to focus my Second Thought immediately to: “What next thought honors God?”- His solutions found in His word lead to peace, joy, love and productivity. “Set your minds on things above, not on what is on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2
