Let Go of Yesterday

Sometimes I like to hang out in "yesterday" and continue to replay the events and happenings of the past. I especially enjoy basking in the victories that I have seen and experienced. But if I am honest, I also have times when I find myself watching the less than desirable moments and wonder what could have or what should have been. As I get older I realize more and more how harmful it is to replay the blooper reel of my life. Living in the past can pollute the present and poison the future. When Jesus taught us to pray, He reminded us to say "give us this DAY, our DAILY bread." He was teaching us how to live in the moment and let that create some positive momentum.
Rumi said, 'let go of your cup of yesterday so you may drink the glory of this moment." Live in the moment and trust God for whatever may lie in wait for you. I can assure you that you are going to enjoy it because He wants the very best for you. This IS the day that the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it!
