Better than yesterday

22 Apr

Yesterday.

Yesterday was tough.

Yesterday you lost your temper. Yesterday you failed as a mom. Yelled at your kids. Snapped at your husband. A co-worker. A friend.

Yesterday you slipped. You fell back into old habits. Looking for anything to take away the pain, grief, sadness, loneliness you feel.

Yesterday you didn’t meet all the goals you set out to meet.

Yesterday you were a little less loving. A little more angry. Said things you didn’t mean, and wish you could take back.

The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:22-23

Yesterday is over. Today provides new mercies. Today is a new day.

Today you are better than yesterday.

Today God has given you a new morning to start all over.

Today you will use your strategies to avoid losing your temper. Let go of little things, and focus on the good stuff.

Today you will be a bit more patient with your kids. Whisper, gently when they mess up. Take time to just hang out with them.

Today you will think before your speak. Thank your husband for all he does. Show appreciation to others as well.

Today you will intentionally work on that goal. Make steps to stay motivated.

Today you will show love and kindness to those in your presence. Talk it out instead of getting angry.

Today is a new day.

And if for some reason, you still fall today. Tomorrow will be new, too.
