Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
Today is a gift of God; that is why its called the "Present".
To further the point of this message apply it currently. As an example: if it was now 8:00 the phrase would go like this:
7:59 is history
8:01 is a mystery
8:00 is a gift of God; that is why its called the "Present".
Jesus saind it another way when He stated that today has enough troulbes of its own. We simply do not need to borrow them from tomorrow. Mankind is the only creation of God that lives with the arrogant expectation of tomorrow (or the next moment). It is the arrogant expectation that adds levels of stress and conflict.
Accept His gift to you. Leave the excess stuff to Him who says: Come to Me all who are weary and heavy ladened and I will give you rest!
The gift is free but receiving it takes practice!
