Have you thought about the fact that today is the day we called tomorrow yesterday? Is there a way to manage our yesterdays, todays and tomorrows?
The Apostle Paul said, “One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 3:14)
What will you do with yesterday’s failures, hurts and disappointments? Paul determined to forget the past. However, it is not always easy to leave the past behind.
Forgetting requires forgiveness. Forgiveness of others and of one’s self. Yesterday is best handled by forgiving other’s failures, forgiving our own mistakes and accepting God’s absolute forgiveness.
