Expired

Psalm 103:5

He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

Ever wake up in the morning, jump out of bed, run around the house and praise God for a new day? For me, even though I am a morning person, this has yet to happen.  Usually I am trying to pry my eyes open wide enough to hit the snooze button for the third time before rolling out of bed to face my day.  Yes I have paused and been grateful for another day but never really have the attitude that I should have.
Each new day means a fresh start at what ever was going on yesterday.  Maybe we really made some bad choices concerning our lives and instead of dwelling on the what ifs or the how comes, we should choose to change our thinking and embrace the new day as a chance to do it again the right way.  Take a moment and just ask God what you can do differently today to make a change for the better.
I know sometimes it seems hard to put the past in yesterday.  We seem to carry it into our new day quite by accident.  It’s like we pack a suitcase the night before just in case we need these emotions for the next day.  God wants us to know that He wants us to live in today.  There is no yesterday and tomorrow is yet to come, for God it is always today and His desire is for us to live in the here and now.  He does not want us to be brought down by yesterdays mistakes but rather for us to lean on Him for answers.
When we begin to change our thinking towards each new day, we allow God to work in our lives.  If we were to wake up each day with the knowledge that what happened yesterday stays in yesterday, I think we could get so much more farther ahead in healing from our past wounds.  I think we would become more free each and every day and as this began to happen we could focus more on the things of God.
I fully know God gives us the strength to get through every day of our lives no matter how difficult we might make them.  He will be there when you first open your eyes in the morning and when you close them at night.  He is waiting to see you through another day.  Trust that He is working on your behalf and that you truly can leave the past right where it is in yesterday because you will not need it where you are going with God today.
