Think a minute…Did you know there are 2 days you never need to worry about? The first day is yesterday. It’s simply impossible to change the past. Yesterday is gone…forever. There is nothing any of us can do to bring it back, especially by worrying about it.
So whatever mistakes, problems, or hurts we had yesterday, we’ve got to stop worrying about them.
We cannot undo what’s already done, nor take back what we’ve already said, only ask forgiveness. Hopefully we learn our lessons from yesterday’s mistakes. But then, let it go! Life goes on, so we’d better go with it.
The other day we never need to worry about is tomorrow. None of us can control or know everything that might happen tomorrow. We don’t even know whether or not we’ll still be here! What’s going to happen will happen whether we worry about it or not.
So we’re left with only one day that we can actually do anything about: today. As the saying goes: “The past is history, tomorrow’s a mystery, so today is all we have. It’s a GIFT, that’s why it’s called the PRESENT.” All we have is right now, and today has enough problems, responsibilities, and worries of its own.
The last thing we need is to pile up yesterday’s and tomorrow’s problems on top of today’s! No wonder some people are stressed out with even physical problems and sicknesses. Remember, if you don’t bury your worries, they could bury you!
This is why Jesus Christ taught us not to worry about yesterday or tomorrow. Jesus said: “Who can add a single hour to his life by worrying! Don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Live just one day at a time.”
So all you have to do is take care of today. Make sure you’re doing your very best in your responsibilities and relationships: that your heart is right with your Maker and other people.
Do all you can and then do a little more: don’t worry about it! Because as long as you’re living Jesus’ way in a daily personal relationship with Him, you know for sure you’ve got nothing to worry about.
But if today you’re not ready to die and face your Maker, you’ve got everything to worry about! So right now won’t you ask Jesus to forgive you for your past wrongs and living your own way.
Then ask Him to take complete charge of your heart and lifestyle from this day on. That’s the only way you can start living His way all the time and be absolutely sure you have nothing to worry about. Just Think a Minute…
