Dear Lord ~~ Today I want to start anew.
Dear Lord ~~ I promise you that today I will.
Dear Lord ~~ Forgive me. Starting today, I will start again.
How many times have you said those words or some variation of them?
I think I may have started over today, more times than there are today's on the calendar.
I don't know ... We're convicted. We glance back at yesterday and clearly see where we went wrong.
An angry word. Impatience with the kids. Gossip. A less than God-honoring post or conversation on Facebook.
We didn't take God seriously.
We weren't serious-enough of a Christian.
Today we want to start afresh.
We promise that starting today.
"Here I am again, Lord. I know I've said it before. But today I really mean it!"
Is this wrong? Is it pointless?
I reckon it is not.
I reckon it is just as Jesus would have it. Watch this...
God's mercies are new every morning ~~ Lamentations 3: 23
Indeed, the "right time" is now. Today is the day of salvation ~~ 2 Corinthians 6:2
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! ~~ Isaiah 43: 18-19
Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. ~~ Matthew 6: 34
In between the past and tomorrow lies TODAY.
The past is called the past because it's passed.
Frankly tomorrow may never come.
We are left with today.
To do our best.
To open our eyes and have ears to hear.
To do all for His glory and the display of His splendor.
Wherever He may lead.
