Yesterday

I wrote this a few days ago while reflecting on the past year....


YESTERDAY

Yesterday I had a dream
a hope
a plan.

Yesterday I had love
had peace
had security.

Yesterday my life made sense
was safe
looked good.

Yesterday ended.

Now,
Today.



Part of my devotion, is reading My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers. Guess what last night's reading was about. Yep, "Yesterday".

Here is a bit:

"God is the God of our yesterdays, and He allows the memory of them to turn the past into a ministry of spiritual growth for our future. God reminds us of the past to protect us from a very shallow security in the present.
Our yesterdays hold broken and irreversible things for us. It is true that we have lost opportunities that will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future. Let the past rest, but let it rest in the sweet embrace of Christ.

Leave the broken, irreversible past in His hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him."

Here's to Today.
