SELAH Daily Devotions!
“This is the day which the Lord hath made, rejoice and be glad in it! ” Psalm 118:24
“The Good ol’ Days!” WOW! Remember? But what is it about memories? Either time has a peculiar way of tainting our perspective or our minds automatically default to selective-perception when the moment ends.
Somehow, we remember that gut-wrenching pain (that you were utterly convinced was terminal) and the high that would get higher and the groove getsgroovyur; the music never stopped; the laughter would become heartier and the flood of tears would never subside; the mornings came too soon and the nights were eternal; puppy love would grow into a couple, a family and divorce and you’d just…and recess lasts for a lifetime…and then! IT’S TODAY and you’re still alive! #wannacheckurpulse?
Whatever happened, good, bad, ugly and indifferent; you survived it all!
Release the coulda’s , woulda’s, shoulda’s! Smile triumphantly over conquests and the sweetness of successes! Sigh sheepishly over the guilts and regrets—then thank GOD for all the second chances!
“You can’t alter your past, but you can always take your past to the Altar!” (unknown)
Thank GOD for the Sufficiency of yesterday’s Grace and Hope-Filled tomorrows!
BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, THANK GOD FOR THIS BRAND-NEW BLESSED DAY! DON’T WASTE A SECOND OF IT! LIVE TODAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST!
“Have a WONDER-FILLED day!”
