Better said; I made a mess of yesterday. I was disobedient to God’s word. My choices were immature and childish. I did things that embarrass me today. My actions bring me guilt and shame.
This morning I woke up and put all that behind me. I confessed my sin to God in prayer. I made things right in my life to the best of my ability. I am starting fresh this morning and making every effort for today to be a great day.
In the book of Lamentations in the Old Testament, the prophet Jeremiah starts thinking about all the mistakes of his life, and then he writes, “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23 – NIV 2011)
God’s compassion is new every morning. Our faithful God has given us another day to become more like him instead of destroying us. Praise be to God.
Yesterday was a mess, but we are forgiven through Jesus the Messiah.
Today I will let go of my yesterdays and start working again toward a brighter tomorrow because of the mercy and love of God.
