I read this quote this morning & it made me think. 'Living in the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causing you to bump into people not going your way.'
Never let yesterday steal your today
Yesterday ended last night. So for today it is more valuable to look ahead and prepare than to look back and cry over spilt milk. Regret looks back. Worry looks around. But faith looks up.
Life can be understood backwards but it needs to be lived forwards. If past history were all that mattered, librarians would be the only successful people in the world. The past should only be viewed with gratitude for the good things God has done.
So look backward with gratitude and forward with confidence. The past is the beginning of your fresh start. Experience is at best yesterday's answer to today's problem. God doesn't consult your past to determine your future.
Isaiah 43:18-19 'Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing;now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.'
This is an interesting scripture to read in light of being a New Creation if you care to spend some time & study it for yourself.
If you are still talking about what you did yesterday, you haven't done much today. Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.
