Waking up this morning, I just want to encourage you with a quick Word. Today - is new. You can’t buy a second from yesterday back. Shoot - you can’t buy, beg or bargain for even one minute of this morning back. Beautiful thing about this….you’re alive. Which means you have a new chance every second of every day to become better than you just were.
Let’s say yesterday was amazing for you - that’s DOPE! …but let’s make today even more amazing. And say yesterday was terrible…or last week was really rough for you…GOOD NEWS - that time has come and gone. Just like the scripture says - God’s love for you never ceases. His mercies are new…EVERY DAY.
I woke up this morning feeling so relieved…like whatever goals I have, I get another chance to take steps towards them. Like today is NEW. I can be NEW. Nothing from the past - good, bad, ugly or beautiful matters anymore. Of course I’ve learned from my highs and lows and I am building from those experiences…but like if you have goals, the good news is you can start today. You can start working out hard today. You can start saving today. You can start reading today. You can start making money today. Quite simply - you can do anything you want…and you can start TODAY.
Don’t wear the garments of yesterday. Don’t be stuck on a high or a miracle from yesterday because that will keep you from receiving new blessings. And SURELY don’t wear the guilt or shame of yesterday…guilt and shame aren’t real. Those are just chains holding you back.
All this to say - stay faithful. Stay the course. Keep moving. And SMILE…God has already forgiven you of your shortcomings and sins…He’s smiling. You’re doing a good job. My boy Mykell said to me the other day, “you don’t need to wonder how you’re doing when you’re driving a car…like you’re driving. So that being said, you don’t need to wonder about how you’re doing…you’re doing it..you’re pushing to learn and grow every day…which is a GOOD THING.” Love yourself a little more. Don’t beat yourself up. God’s not worried about yesterday. He’s on today. So be on the same page as Him.
THANK GOD FOR TODAY. AND THANK GOD HIS LOVE IS NEVER ENDING AND HIS MERCY AND GRACE IS ALWAYS PRESENT AND NEW EVERY MOMENT.
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness."
Have a good day!
