27th -- Live For Today


This is a great poem that reminds me to forget the things that are past 
and look toward the future and better things the Lord has for me. I hope
you enjoy the poem and the message it offers to each one of us. 


Have you ever wished, 
when a day went wrong
a wish that's quite in vain
that it were only possible
to live that day again 

You'd start out in the morning
with the prayers you should have said
and through the days your actions
with tolerance be led 

The many little instances
that tried your patience, true
if only you could start again
you'd know now what to do 

You'd kneel and say your evening prayers
and thank the lord above
for all the pleasant hours past
your heart at peace with love 

But since this is a wish in vain
and never can be true
there's only one alternative
just one thing you can do 

To live today in such a way
that when tomorrow comes
the memories of yesterday
will all be cherished ones.

By Nita Wheeler 

We can sit around all day and think of the past and what we should have 
done in a certain situation but instead of wasting the precious time the 
Lord has given us, we should look toward the future with a hope and a 
dream. It is a waste of your time to live in the past for many reasons 
but the most important reason is because, you cannot change the past. I 
encourage you to forget yesterday and look toward tomorrow. As we look 
forward to our tomorrows God will place a peace and comfort in our hearts
for trusting in Him and not worrying about our past sins and failures. If
God forgave your past then why should you dwell on those unimportant 

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Philippians 3:13-14 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but
this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and 
reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." KJV

Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be 
red like crimson, they shall be as wool." KJV
