I am confident that today is going to be an excellent day.
We have never been older than we are today. With age comes wisdom. No matter how much we have messed up this year, the past month, or the previous day, it has all educated us. We are more experienced than any other day before this one, and we will not let the lessons be lost on us. We are older, and we are wiser.
We all have choices to make every single day. We can look back with regrets, shame, and guilt, or we can look forward with hope. We can take the past and let it catapult us into the future or drag us down to the depths of despair. We can accept God’s offer of grace or reject it for the pain of self-inflicted punishment.
God saw fit to give us another day. We do not have to waste it replaying our past. We are here, and we are ready for whatever comes at us. This is a day the Lord has made. Choose forgiveness, hope, and promise over all other alternatives.
Choose to make today great.
